Yes, the welterweight from North Palm Springs in California fights Argentina’s rugged Diego Chaves on a Top Rank promotion at the Cosmopolitan Hotel on Saturday, with HBO televising. Only problem is, happening just down the Strip at the same time is another show, at the MGM Grand.
This one is promoted by Golden Boy and televised by Showtime. The card is topped by Amir Khan versus Devon Alexander, with many speculating that the winner could be Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent. On the MGM undercard is rising welterweight Keith Thurman, another possible “Pretty Boy Floyd” foe somewhere down the line.
