According to promoter Gary Shaw, a deal for a junior welterweight unification between Timothy Bradley and Devon Alexander could be signed by next week. Shaw plans to meet with HBO next week to discuss the financial details. Alexander's promoter, Don King, is likely to attend the meeting. The network has been pushing for the fight. If a deal is reached next week, HBO wants to televise the fight on January 29.

"I think that the deal will get signed sometime next week. I have to go up to HBO and negotiate. Don King wants to go with me, which is fine, and to negotiate with HBO. And if it as big as HBO keeps on saying that this fight is, and I do believe that it's one of the biggest fights that HBO can put on the air, then, you know, they'll pay what the fight is worth," Shaw said
