Broner, Russell, Mitchell vs. Banks Tripleheader Possible

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer advised BoxingScene.com that his company is currently working on a fall tripleheader involving three of their rising star. Provided that he wins next Saturday's HBO televised fight with Vicente Escobedo (26-3, 15KOs), WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs) would defend his title as part of the tripleheader. Broner could also make his lightweight debut. The unbeaten boxer recently indicated to BoxingScene that Escobedo is possibly his last fight at super feather.

Rising featherweight Gary Russell Jr. would face an opponent to be named at a later date.  

Rounding the tripleheader out, heavyweight Seth Mitchell (25-0-1, 19KOs) would face Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18KOs). They were previously scheduled to meet on the Amir Khan-Danny Garcia undercard this Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Mitchell suffered a hand injury and withdrew.

The network and the actual fall date has not been finalized, according to Schaefer.

so what's up th Gary Russell ducking Luis Franco? I don't like being told somebody is great, especially when they haven't shown it. Broner could be good but he struggled against the only decent guy he's fought Ponce de Leon.…
