The bout will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 10:20 p.m. ET/PT.

Ticket details for this outstanding battle along with information on an excellent undercard will be announced shortly.

ORLANDO SALIDO - "I am little disappointed that I am not fighting Berchelt for the WBC Belt, but injuries are part of boxing and this things happen all the time. But a fight with Miguel Roman is a good fight and it should be an all-action Mexican war  between two guys that will fight from start to finish"

"I very happy that I will be in the main event in Las Vegas and I want to give the fans another great fight. I know I need to beat Roman to stay on course to fight for a world championship next year and that is what I intent to do on Saturday December 9"

"I guess in a way I am competing against Lomachenko who is also on a TV card that same night, but everyone that knows about boxing knows what fight will have the drama and excitement and which one will have a lot of dancing"

Wilder is the best Heavy weight in the world currently. If AJ was as confident as his fans he'd fight wilder without hesitation. Its crystsl clear that AJ is afraid!
