Broner vs Sykes Clash in Play For Peterson-Khan Card?

According to the Dewsbury Star, Gary Sykes (20-2, 5KOs) has accepted a non-title opportunity against WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs) on May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Sykes says the fight is scheduled for ten rounds. Amir Khan challenges WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson in an HBO televised rematch in the main event.

Both of Sykes' defeats came at the hands of Gary Buckland - a first round TKO in November 2010 and a twelve round decision in September 2011.

Sykes said: “I have never gone into the ring thinking I’m going to lose and I never will, even against the world number one.”

Sykes has a good engine on him, that's about it. It's not going to matter 'cause it's not going past 3 rounds. He's not even a top British SFW, how is this fight even happening?
