Questions immediately followed the big announcement on Tuesday afternoon of Golden Boy Promotions’ plans for a September 15 showdown between Saul Alvarez and Victor Ortiz.

The bout is scheduled to headline a Showtime pay-per-view broadcast, but is contingent on Ortiz getting past – or at least not losing to – Josesito Lopez next weekend, which also airs on Showtime.

Even if that hurdle is cleared, there is also the matter of Top Rank having a hold on the September 15 date for a pay-per-view event of his own.

The dynamics of that rumored show parallel that of Alvarez-Ortiz, as Top Rank hopes to stage the long demanded clash between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and lineal middleweight king Sergio Martinez. A Nevada commission source has confirmed to that Top Rank is interested in placing the bout at Thomas & Mack, to be distributed by and air on HBO PPV.

Golden Boy didn’t seem particularly concerned about sweating out next weekend’s results on Showtime. The California-based company is even less worried about whatever Top Rank may or may not have in store on Mexican Independence Day.

“We're not concerned about what other promoters do,” stated Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions when asked of the possibility of going head to head with Top Rank. “We're only concerned about our own business and that has served us very well.”

[QUOTE=Popovich]No one is changing their date. Sept 15th is a huge date, and seeing that Chavez and Alvarez are pretty big names in Mexico.....I can't see Top Rank giving that date up as they had it first. I also don't see GBP giving that date up either as the had already signed off on that...

If Robert Guerrero can get past Aydin, and beat him like I think he's going to, then He will be in the mix to fight the winner of Ortiz and Canelo. Golden Boy Promotions needs to get The Ghost a big name fight. He is by far the most underrated fighter in boxing. He beats both Canelo and Ortiz IMO
