Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has advised BoxingScene.com that Showtime's June 8th card, featuring a welterweight war between Marcos Maidana (33-3, 30KOs) and Josesito Lopez (30-5, 18KOs) in the main event - will become a tripleheader at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

In co-feature, junior middleweight Erislandy Lara (17-1-2, 11KOs) and Alfredo Angulo (22-2, 18 KOs) will trade punches. Rounding out the tripleheader is a super middleweight slugfest between Sakio Bika (31-5-2, 21KOs) and Marco Antonio Periban (20-0, 13KOs).

Another card to become a tripleheader, says Schaefer, is Golden Boy's Showtime televised card on May 18th from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. In the main event, Lamont Peterson (31-1-1, 16KOs) defends his IBF junior welterweight title against Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs), with Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) defending his IBF welterweight title in the televised co-feature against mandatory challenger Kell Brook (29-0, 19KOs).

Added to the above card is a welterweight clash between two unbeatens, as Shawn Porter (20-0-1, 14KOs) will face Phil Lo Greco (25-0, 14KOs). And Golden Boy's recently signed British Olympian, Anthony Ogogo, is slated to appear on the card in his second fight as a professional. Ogogo makes his pro debut on the April 27th undercard to Amir Khan-Julio Diaz, taking place in Sheffield.

[QUOTE=richardt]Periban is probably the least talented unbeaten fighter to come along in years. Bika destroys him.[/QUOTE] Lo Greco has a talent problem too, based on his last fight, I'll go with Porter.

[QUOTE=hougigo]I thought Porter was with TOp Rank[/QUOTE] Nah, remember he was on Showtime on the Khan/Molina undercard and the Guerrero/Aydin undercard.

I remember Periban, a big tall mexican, he was on the Linares-Thompson undercard and i remember he was dropped hard in the first round He's pretty decent but his biggest problem is throwing unnecessary punches and getting caught in between. He's also pretty easy to hit, Bika shouldnt have a pr...
