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.
