LOS ANGELES -- Karim "Hard Hitta" Mayfield makes his Top Rank debut Saturday against Christopher Ferndandez in an off-TV bout.

But if Mayfield (17-0-1, 10 KOs) is impressive, he'll be in line for a title shot against WBA junior welterweight beltholder Khabib Allakhverdiev this fall on HBO, per a source close to Mayfield.
