There is no shortage of great boxing matchups this weekend.

First up, there's a card going down in Australia on DAZN. The event will be headlined by a WBO Global Super Light Welterweight Championship fight between Liam Paro and Brock Jarvis. The undercard also sees contest for other regional titles, as well as the return of Skye Nicolson.

Also on DAZN, there's a second card from the Misfits Boxing series. The card is influencer-heavy and features YouTubers Jay Swingler and Cherdleys in the main event. The promotion was formed by U.K. star KSI earlier this year as he headlined the inaugural event.

Going down on Sky Sports is a double dose of women's title fights. In the main event, Claressa Shields and Savannah Marshall will face off in a World Super Featherweight title unifier. The co-main event features Mikaela Meyer taking on Alycia Baumgardner in a World Middleweight Championship unification bout.

On Fox Sports pay-per-view, fans will get to see the return of 'The Bronze Bomber', Deontay Wilder. Wilder returns for the first time in a year to face off against fellow contender Robert Helenius in the main event. The co-main event features former champion Caleb Plant facing Anthony Dirrell.

Lastly, on Sunday, fans can watch Devin Haney's second encounter with George Kambosos Jr. on ESPN. The bout is a rematch of their World Lightweight title unification bout earlier this year. In their first clash,'The Dream' easily won by unanimous decision.
