Khan-Garcia, Mitchell-Banks Heads To The Mandalay Bay
By Osman Rodriguez
According to Amir "King" Khan (26-2), the Briton's upcoming HBO televised fight against WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (23-0) will take place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The doubleheader is scheduled for July 14th. The fight was originally slated to take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on July 7th - but when the pay-per-view involving Juan Manuel Marquez fell through for July 14th - Golden Boy took over the date.
Heavyweight prospect Seth Mitchell (25-0-1) will open up the HBO televised portion of the card against Jonathon Banks (28-1-1).
