Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has advised BoxingScene.com that a deal has been reached for a mandatory welterweight fight between IBF champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) and mandatory challenger Kell Brook (29-0, 19KOs). The bout will take place on January 19th, with two possible venues in the running. Showtime will televise. The fight is going to take place in the United States.

"Alexander-Brook will be part of a tripleheader on January 19th. I 'm looking at two possible venues, but I don't want to disclose that until I have it all finished, which is probably going to be early next week.," Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

The junior welterweight fight between WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KOs) and Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KOs) will move to February 9th, on Showtime, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The show was orginally targeted for January 19th at Barclays, but the New York State Athletic Commission would not allow two events to run on the same day. The other event, featuring WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, is taking place at The Theater in Madison Square Garden with HBO televising.

As part of Garcia-Judah, WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (28-0, 20 KOs) will make the first defense of his title. One name being mentioned as the opponent, is former undisputed champion Jermain Taylor (31-4-1, 19KOs).

If Brook can get his jab going I think he can eke out a decision, however, if the referee allows Alexander to hold and use negative tactics, I can see Bro...

Hopefully my boy Kell gets this W. Never been a fan of Alexander, though he has talent. It's a 50-50 fight, I just hope it's a good fight at the end of the day.
