Dirrell vs Magee, Gamboa vs Salgado Eyed For 11/17?

By Miguel Rivera

Promoter Hector Garcia has advised BoxingScene.com that Juan Carlos Salgado's next defense of the IBF super featherweight championship will come against undefeated Cuban star Yuriorkis Gamboa. The date being targeted is November 17th, potentially on Showtime.

Salgado (26-1-1, 16KOs) vs. Gamboa (21-0, 16KOs) will be part of a doubleheader featuring super middleweight Andre Dirrell (20-1, 14KOs) in the opening fight. The rumored opponent being discussed is WBA interim-champion Brian Magee (36-4-1, 25KOs).

The doubleheader would be the first promoted show by TMT Promotions, the company started by rap star 50 Cent and WBA 154-pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

There is even talk of 50 Cent doing a concert prior to the fights.

Here's my dream...... Gamboa fights Salgado in November and Broner fights someone like Beltran/Rees in October. Gamboa fights Mendez in January and Broner fights Burns/Mitchell in February. Gamboa fights Vazquez (assuming he beats Gesta in November) in May/June and Broner…
