As of right now Bermane Stiverne and Alexander Povetkin have one thing in common: WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder. Early this year Povetkin was scheduled to fight against Deontay Wilder in May but Povetkin tested positive for a drug named Meldonium and the fight was canceled. Since then Povetkin has been cleared for any intentional wrongdoing by WBC. Bermane Stiverne on the other hand lost the heavyweight WBC belt to Wilder in January of 2015. Now the WBC has ordered that Povetkin and Stiverne fight. The winner of the fight will become the mandatory for Deontay Wilder. The two fighters have until September 30th to make the fight. If they fail to negotiate a deal before that date the fight will go to purse bid.

 

GGG PROMOTER SAYS OFFER NOT RIGHT

 

According to Saul Canelo Álvarez and his team, Gennady Golovkin was sent several offers about a month ago that Golovkin declined. Now Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, has sent a counter offer. It seems like Canelo’s team was offering Golovkin a flat fee which some estimate to be about $10 Million. Loeffler on the other hand doesn’t want a flat fee he want’s Golovkin to get a percentage of what is earned instead. “A flat fee for a fight is usually given to a fighter or contender who’s clearly the ‘B’ side,” Loeffler told The Los Angeles Times. “My offer back to [Golden Boy] was based on a percentage, just like we saw in the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao agreement.” Golovkin is currently in negotiations to fight against Daniel Jacobs in December and hopes to fight Canelo by September 2017.

 

PORTER READY FOR ANY BIG FIGHT

 

The last time Shawn Porter stepped into the ring he lost to Keith Thurman by unanimous decision in a fight some think could have gone the other way. Now Porter has come out and said that he wants the rematch against Thurman, but if he doesn’t get the Thurman fight he wants to fight against Garcia or any of the other champions at the 147lbs division. Another opponent Porter’s team is looking into is Andre Berto who has just come off of a victory against Victor Ortiz. For a while it looked like Berto was going to fight Danny Garcia but Garcia decided to start negotiations with John Molina instead. Now that Berto has no opponent he is now free to negotiate a fight with Porter. Shawn Porter’s dad, Kenny porter, has also expressed interest in a fight against Berto or a rematch with Thurman. “If Berto doesn't have a dance partner we would gladly take that fight.” said Kenny Porter. “Same with Keith Thurman. We want that rematch and want those big fights."

 

MAIN EVENT CHANGES

 

 

Veteran super bantamweight Erik Ruiz (15-5-1, 6 KOs) has replaced Ghanaian boxer Emmanuel Quartey, who was unable to secure a visa to enter the United States, in this Friday night’s 10-round main event versus Hanzel “Rude Boy” Martinez (23-2, 19 KOs), headlining a “Knockout Night at the D” card. The card is airing live (11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT) on CBS Sports Network. “Knockout Night at the D” will be held outdoors under the neon lights at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center and is promoted by Roy Jones Jr. (RJJ) Boxing Promotions.
