    The fight was heading over to HBO, as the network has been showcasing both boxers in the last two years.

    But now several other players are in the hunt to secure the fight.

    A source with direct knowledge of the negotiations, has advised ESPN Deportes that Showtime is very interested in televising the fight - and the lead promoter for Berchelt-Roman have been in discussions with the network.

    Showtime is not the only player. The source also indicates that Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is interested in placing that fight on ESPN+ and Eddie Hearn of Matchroom would like to place that fight on DAZN.

    Berchelt vs. Roman has been ordered by the World Boxing Council, and the boxers were given additional time to finalize a deal - and they are reportedly very close to getting it done.

    The fight is potentially going to land on October 13 or October 20 - and the involved promoters would like to stage the fight in the Unites States - despite two Mexican boxers being involved.
