    An HBO card promoted by Golden Boy is in the works for July 15 in Los Angeles that will be headlined by junior lightweight titleholder Miguel Berchelt's mandatory defense against Takashi Miura, multiple sources told ESPN.

    The co-feature, which has been agreed to but is awaiting contracts to be signed, would be a light heavyweight contest between top 10 contenders Joe Smith Jr. and Sullivan Barrera. A third fight that is possible could see junior lightweight titlist Jezreel Corrales, in his first fight since signing with Golden Boy, making a title defense against Robinson Castellanos, who knocked out Yuriorkis Gamboa in the seventh round in a major upset on May 5.

    Great card. I hope Miura can win but I got a feeling this is too much for him.

    Great card. I'm glad to see Castellanos getting a big push after upsetting Gamboa.

    Oh man! Sick card! I love it. The Barrera vs Smith match I did not expect. Interesting. I think Smith wins. Barrera just chose to not fight, who was it, that Russian guy Kovalev hates...I think? I wonder where Barrera's head space is at?

    A whole month late but I went to buy tickets to this event on ticketmaster and most tickets are still available. About 80% I'd say. I know LA is a boxing town. Is it the lack of marketing or are people just not interested?
