Malignaggi vs. Broner: Charlo-Hopkins Bout in Play

By Rick Reeno

The Showtime televised tripleheader is nearly complete for June 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

In the main event, Paulie Malignaggi will defend his WBA welterweight crown against WBC lightweight king Adrien Broner, who moves up in weight by two divisions. Heavyweight contender Seth Mitchell will aim to avenge last year's knockout loss by entering an immediate rematch with Johnathan Banks.

Round out the card is a potential junior middleweight fight between veteran Demetrius Hopkins (33-2-1, 13KOs), the nephew of the more famous Bernard, and undefeated rising prospect Jermell Charlo (20-0, 10KOs). Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer tells BoxingScene.com that his matchmakers are working on the fight, but the deal is not yet done.
