Andre Berto-Josesito Lopez Eyed For March 13, Spike TV

By Rick Reeno

Manager/adviser Al Haymon is making a lot of moves. Two weeks ago the 'most powerful man in boxing' held a press conference in New York City to announce his new boxing series, Premier Boxing Champions, on NBC.

The first show of the 'Premier Boxing Champions' series will debut on March 7th, on NBC, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Two fights have been announced for the show, Robert Guerrero vs. Keith Thurman and Adrien Broner vs. John Molina. Another show takes place on April 11th with Danny Garcia vs. Lamont Peterson and likely Andy Lee vs. Peter Quillin.

Sources with knowledge of the details have advised that Al Haymon is now rolling out another series of shows, this time on Spike TV.

The first show of the series is being lined up for March 13th, with former champion Andre Berto (29-3, 22KOs) facing Josesito Lopez (33-6, 19KOs) in a welterweight encounter. Former welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15KOs) is expected to appear in the co-feature but the opponent has not been confirmed. Information regarding the location and venue has not been confirmed at this time.

More details are going to be announced at a Haymon Boxing press conference.

Truth be told, ALOT of Haymon's fighters have turned out to be fake gold. Look to seeing Broner and Berto fight easy fights from now on, they are both vunerable as hell.

Would normally go with Lopez but he looked pretty bad the last time I saw him. I think he might be sort of shot. But then again he is fighting Berto.
