Earlier this week, BoxingScene.com's Keith Idec reported that a deal is being worked on for a fight between undefeated WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia and former four division champion Adrien Broner - which would take place at a catch-weight.
The fight is being discussed for July 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Garcia, who won world titles at 126, 130 and 135-pounds, is expected to move up to at least 140 to battle Broner, whose last fight was contested at the welterweight limit of 147 pounds. One of the biggest sticking points in making that fight is the weight limit.
If Garcia-Broner comes together, sources have now advised BoxingScene.com that the co-feature bout will pit Brooklyn native and former champ Luis Collazo (37-7) against former two-division champion Devon Alexander (26-4) in a crossroads battle.
Collazo, who is a former welterweight champion, last fought in February when he pulled off an upset knockout victory against Sammy Vasquez. The southpaw has won six of his last eight bouts with his only losses coming against Keith Thurman and Amir Khan.
Alexander, who is also left handed, has been out of the ring for over a year and a half and will attempt to bounce back from back to back defeats against Arron Martinez and Khan. The St. Louis native has held titles at 140 and 147 pounds.
