HBO Working On A Great May 7 Show!

Barrera, Freitas, Diaz, and hopefully Morales!

Sources close to the situation have informed Boxingtalk that junior lightweight king Marco Antonio Barrera and Golden Boy Promotions are in line to receiveĀ a May 7 HBO date. If something can be worked out for Barrera-Erik Morales IV, obviously the fight will be shown on HBO PPV, however, if Barrera makes a mandatory defense, or opts for someone other than Morales, HBO World Championship Boxing would televise. In either case, former two division champion, Acelino "Popo" Freitas is expected to appear on the co-feature against the winner of the IBF lightweight title fight between Julio Diaz and Levander Johnson. Boxingtalk.com will continue to keep you updated, so stay tuned. Until then, Remember where you heard it first! (12:30 AM ET)
