Shumenov To Go Golden Boy, Fights on Broner-Maidana

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has confirmed to BoxingScene.com that WBA light heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov (13-1, 8KOs) will make his return on the December 14th "Danger Zone" Showtime pay-per-view at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The card will be topped by a welterweight battle between WBA champion Adrien Broner and top contender Marcos Maidana.

"We are going to have a free view, which is going to be available on all of the platforms, including Showtime and everywhere - with Shumenov. Millions of people are going to watch that free view, which is going to lead right into the pay-per-view, Schaefer told BoxingScene.com.

Shumenov will likely face undefeated Tamas Kovacs (23-0, 14KOs). A contract has been sent to Kovacs, but has not been returned as of yet.

Schaefer looks forward to a long working relationship with Shumenov.

"He will be with Golden Boy. I'm not going to say what the agreement is, but we are going to be working together. He is a very talented and exciting guy who comes forward. He is a world champion and we are honored to be working with him," Schaefer said.

Should Shumenov win in December, and IBF champion Bernard Hopkins defeats mandatory challenger Karo Murat on October 26th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City - it could set up the opportunity for Golden Boy to stage a unification at some point in 2014.

I grew up a huge Virgil Hill fan and consequently a Light Heavyweight fan. I'm glad the division is getting hot again with the infusion of talent from the Sup Mid and Middleweight divisions. I've been fortunate enough to meet Shumenov in LV at the gym (he's a beast by the way) and the sport needs...

Well I guess we will see how things play out in the LH division?? I know that kovalev is getting a lot of hype right now. Too bad people don't know the truth about him being a racist. Im really surprised hes fetting so much attention when such crap has come from his mouth. Hopefully if he fights ...

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny]Yeah this makes sense for both. BHops is in serious danger of becoming an irrelevance with the young turks taking over on HBO. At least Shumenov gives him a beltholder to fight (assuming Beibut makes in past the mighty Tammy Kovacs). Oh well, nice to see Beibut finally foun...
