Broner-Maidana Now Free, Big Fall Changes on SHO

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer, and Showtime Sports VP Stephen Espinoza, have officially announced that Showtime's televised card on November 30th in Texas has been canceled and the fights have been shuffled off to Golden Boy's two December events, also televised on Showtime.

Added to December 7th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Devon Alexander (26-1, 14KOs) will defend his IBF welterweight title against Shawn Porter (22-0-1, 14KOs). Alexander-Porter was the original headliner for November 30.

The December 7th card is still headlined by a welterweight bout between Paulie Malignaggi (37-5, 7KOs) and Zab Judah (42-8, 29KOs).

Also on the show, Sakio Bika (32-5, 7KOs) will defend his WBC middleweight title against Anthony Dirrell (26-0, 22KOs), and Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12KOs) will face Austin Trout (26-1, 14KOs) for the vacant WBA junior middleweight title.

On December 14th, Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs) will still defend his WBA welterweight title against Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31KOs) - but the event is no longer going to be carried as a pay-per-view event. The fight is now going to be a Showtime televised quadrupleheader - but the event will be pushed like a pay-per-view event and there is an "All Access" series planned among other items.

The December 14th card is leaving the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will now take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

WBA interim-welterweight champion Keith Thurman (21-0, 19KOs) will stay on the 12/14 show in a fight against Jesus Soto Karass (28-8-3, 18KOs).

Leo Santa Cruz (25-0-1, 15KOs), orginally booked for the November 30th card, will now defend his WBC super bantamweight champion against Cesar Seda (25-1, 17KOs) on the 12/14 card.

Also added to the show, Victor Ortiz (29-4-2, 22KOs) will return for the first time since last June's TKO loss to Josesito Lopez, where he suffered a serious June injury. He was originally going to face IBF 154-pound champion Carlos Molina (22-5-2, 6Kos), but the IBF rejected the fight. He will now face Alfonso Gomez (23-6-2, 12KOs).

Dropped from the 12/14 card is Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) vs. Jorge Melendez (27-3-1, 26KOs) over financial issues. Schaefer indicated that Melendez priced himself out.

And staying on the 12/14 show is Beibut Shumenov (13-1, 8KOs) defending his WBA light heavyweight title against Tamas Kovacs (23-0, 14KOs).

They take it off ppv and make it free and people still b*tch and complain, unbelievable.

I'm glad. Thougt the broner/maidana card was great but I couldn't see myself paying more than $29.95 for the card. Broner should do a few ppv undercards like Canelo did before he gets his own card.

[QUOTE=1pnchndn;13881378]these quadruple headers are probably not needed. they run way to long and most of them are boring as hell. [/QUOTE] Wow. They are giving you more boxing on TV, with stacked undercards, for free. But you are actually complaining?…

Maidana v Boner free? Have they only just realised that Boner isnt a PPV attraction? Strange.
