Larios-Guzman and De Leon-Vazquez Undercard possibilites!
When Boxingtalk caught up with junior lightweight emperor Marco Antonio Barrera, he told us that he would be sitting down with his people over at Golden Boy Promotions this week to decide his next move. After speaking with Golden Boy’s head honcho Richard Schaefer, he informed Boxingtalk that plans were being made for the Baby-Faced Assassin to return to the ring on April 9th. He did not want to comment on whom Barrera would be facing, since it could effect the outcome at the bargaining table, but Schaefer did inform us that he would be traveling to Mexico City soon to finalize plans for one of boxing’s most exciting fighters who is coming off his 2004 “Fight of the Year” victory over Erik Morales. UPDATE:
Boxingtalk.com understands that Barrera-TBA will take place on HBO PPV. Fights under consideration for the undercard are Daniel Ponce De Leon challenging for the IBF 122 Israel Vazquez, who signed with Sycuan Ringside Promotions after winning his championship under Golden Boy's banner. If Oscar Larios handles Wayne McCullough on February 10 without suffering a cut or injury, boxing fans may be in for a real treat since we also understand that Larios-Joan Guzman, would likely take place as the televised chief support. Chances are Mexican Olympian Abner Mares would get the festivities started. REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST! (5:45 PM ET)
