|Golden Boxing Notes from DC

Had a chance to talk to Golden Boy CEO, Richard
Schaefer for a few minutes earlier. Schaefer is in Washington DC where
his company is staging the soon-to-be-sold-out bout between Amir Khan
and Lamont Peterson at the Convention Center. Here’s a few nuggets he
- He says all four fighters are on board for Jan. 28th in Houston at
the Reliant Arena, when jr middleweight James Kirkland faces Carlos
Molina and Erik Morales defends his WBC jr. welterweight title against
Danny Garcia. This card will be televised by HBO.
- When I asked who would be the opening bout on the Feb. 11th
Showtime telecast (when Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz rematch at the MGM
Grand in Las Vegas), he said that talented featherweight Gary Russell
Jr. could get that opening slot on the telecast. It’ll be interesting to
see who is matched with Russell, who in many respects is almost too
good for his own good.
- Feb, 25th will the date when new welterweights Marcos Maidana and
Devon Alexander square off in St. Louis. WBO jr. lightweight titlist
Adrien Broner will most likely face Eloy Perez in the HBO opener.( It
says here that his is by far Broner’s toughest test to date). Say what
you want about any regional biases that might( or do) exist for
Alexander but the reality is, this is the only place where this fight
will really draw.
- Moving forward, Schaefer says that his company will focus on more
locally themed fights- like the one taking place this Saturday- that
make sense based on the boxers involved. Just my opinion, but I expect
their shows in Texas and ’the Loo’ to do very well at the box-office.
Let’s hope this is a trend that continues.
Schaefer also says that their Telefutura series will be back in 2012,
in addition to some other television deals that they will be announcing
in the near future.
