News & notes from this week in the world of boxing.
- Canadian KO artist David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) has announced via his social media that his next bout will take place December 6 against Gabriel Rosado (21-8, 13 KOs) in the United States. It is a Golden Boy card set to take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York slated for HBO.
- Former two-division world champion TIMOTHY ‘Desert Storm’ BRADLEY JR. returns to the ring where he will battle one-time interim welterweight world champion DIEGO ‘La Joya’ CHAVES in a 12-round welterweight rumble, Saturday, December 13, inside The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on HBO World Championship Boxing®.
- Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander is on tap for Dec. 13 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas pegged for Showtime. Rumours had been circulating that Khan may have been lined up to face Keith Thurman but the news of the Alexander clash likely quashes that. The date is an interesting one as the Golden Boy card looks set to go up against Top Rank’s Bradley-Chaves HBO card despite the amicable relations between the two promoters as of late.
