Abner Mares in Line For Canelo vs. Lopez Undercard
By Ryan Burton
BoxingScene.com has been advised that the final televised slot on Golden Boy's big Showtime televised quadrupleheader, taking place on September 15th at the MGM Grand, will likely be filled by undefeated WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares (24-0, 13KOs) versus an opponent that will be announced at Golden Boy's press conference on Tuesday in Los Angeles.
WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will face Josesito Lopez in the main event. Jhonny Gonzalez versus Daniel Ponce De Leon and Marcos Maidana versus Jesus Soto Karass round out the other two televised slots.
The card will go head to head versus promotional rival Top Rank's pay-per-view card, also being staged in Las Vegas, at the Thomas & Mack Center. That card will be headlined by the middleweight title clash between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Sergio Martinez.

best bout of the nite ,IMO is Gonzalez v de Leon, worst is the garbage bout w/Karas...Comment by ergheiz on 07-16-2012
Looking just at the title of the thread I thought it said Mares was next in line to face Canelo,I wouldn't be surprised if it were true though...Comment by whoseyourdaddy on 07-16-2012
I'll probably just watch the undercard and skip the "main event" although this has been the year of surprises......maybeeeeee just maybeeeee Lopez surprise everybody again....fingers crossed.Comment by Big_L on 07-15-2012
