By Ryan Burton has been advised by multiple sources that a welterweight crossroads battle between three time champion Devon Alexander and rugged contender Jesus Soto Karass is in the works for June 21st at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

Both fighters are coming off losses this past December. Alexander lost his IBF welterweight title to Shawn Porter at the Barclays Center while Soto Karass was stopped by Keith Thurman a week later in San Antonio.

The winner of the fight will have many options available within Golden Boy's deep stable of welterweights.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer recently told multiple outlets that he is looking at putting the Gary Russell Jr versus Vasyl Lomachenko fight for the vacant WBO featherweight title on the same date and venue as the proposed Alexander-Soto Karass fight. He also mentioned that the card possibly could become a triple header.

Golden Boy won the highly anticipated purse bid that was ordered by the WBO to win the rights to the Russell-Lomachenko title tilt.

[QUOTE=mercadojglb]Russell Jr is with Golden Boy and Loma is with Top Rank. I doubt this fight gets signed.[/QUOTE] Career high paydays for both fighters and a solid purse bid from GBP says this fight happens.

I cannot understand how Soto-Karass keeps landing big fights!

War Soto Karass all the way but I believe Alexander will be in control the entire way through. This fight was made to put him back in the picture with a dominating victory over a limited, war worn fighter.

Russell Jr is with Golden Boy and Loma is with Top Rank. I doubt this fight gets signed.

Good fight. I think Alexander wins a close UD but it could go either way. Lomachenko vs Russell Jr on the undercard is a great idea.
