How bratty and ridiculous is Julio Cesar Chavez Jr? He barely got by Marcos Reyes on Showtime, then acted like a real jerk about it. On the undercard, super flyweight McJoe Arroyo got some fortunate scores against Arthur Villanueva, and junior welterweight Amir Imam took out Fernando Angulo.

Earlier in the day on CBS, Belfast native Carl Frampton battled Alejandro Gonzalez Jr after being knocked down twice, before winning a decision. In that co-feature, Chris Arreola trudged to a draw with Fred Kassi.

In the UK, Scott Quigg, Frampton's potential rival, took out Kiko Martinez in two rounds -- huge, since Martinez went the distance with Frampton in 2014. On the same card, Anthony Crolla settled for a controversial draw against Darleys Perez.

Super middleweights Arthur Abraham and Robert Stieglitz fought for the fourth time in Germany, too. Abraham destroyed his rival in six rounds this time.

Lastly, Cesar Cuenca and Nonito Donaire both notched wins in Macau, while a ShoBox headlined by Antoine Douglas turned some heads on Friday night.

This coming weekend, light heavyweight titlist Sergey Kovalev takes on mandatory Nadjib Mohammedi on HBO which could be explosive. On NBC Sports, Beibut Shumenov continues at cruiserweight to fight BJ Flores.

It's a lot, we know. But let James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor guide you through it like a pair of fistic sherpa, braving a barren landscape of bulljive. All for you.

Thanks for tuning in!
