Miguel Vazquez-Mickey Bey Looms For August 30

By Luis Sandoval

BoxingScene.com has been advised by a source close to the situation that IBF Lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (34-3, 13KOs) will take on Mickey Bey (20-1, 10KOs) on August 30th at a site yet to be determined.

This will be Vasquez's 7th defense of his IBF title. He was last seen in the ring in February when he defeated mandatory challenger Denis Shafikov after not having fought in 2013. Vasquez recently signed to Al Haymon and became part of a long list of fighters who aligned themselves with the powerful advisor.

This will be Mickey Bey's first shot at a world title as he's been on a 2 fight win streak since his lone loss in 2013. Bey is considered one of the top fighters at the Mayweather Boxing Club and hopes to be the 2nd TMT fighter to win a world title.

More details will be provided as things develop and become finalized.

I think Floyd/Maidana 2 undercard will be something like this Santa Cruz vs Jhonatan Romero Deontay Wilder vs Bermane Stiverne Keith Thurman vs Alfonso Gomez

Bey by house fighter decision

Vasquez usually fights guys with slow feet that come toward him or stand there waiting , Bey will be the fastest/best boxer he's seen in quite sometime I'm expecting turbospeed backgammon.
