:boxing: HardDoor's Autumn Boxing Preview - '08 Edition

<--To Summer 2008 Boxing Preview

To Winter 2008-09 Boxing Preview-->

The dates and bouts listed for this season's boxing preview is pretty much complete, save for a few fights that happened at the beginning of September (for now...). The comment snippets will be coming soon, but in the meantime, here's a look at what you can expect this autumn.

::Big courtesy to Fightnews.com and Boxing Records Online for their compilations of fight schedules and results, as well as ESPN::

[C] = Major Championship Match. Only the champions defending their titles are noted as such, though their opponents may be holding a belt that they are not defending.

[NIXED] = The scheduled fight was cancelled, or "nixed". This can happen at any time for any given circumstance, such as an injury or a contract disagreement.

TBA = "To Be Announced", or in this case, "Fighter To Be Announced". Sometimes, an opponent for a fighter may not be announced or set until very close to the fight time. This can be due to a number of reasons, ranging from a sudden change in fighters due to last-minute difficulties, to the lack of an actual opponent having been chosen yet.
