    Involving Gary Russell Jr (WBC belt), Lee Selby (IBF belt), and Mares/Cuellar (WBA belt) winner.

    All fights will be on Showtime or CBS, and is expected to unify a winner in 2017.

    This tournament will be unifying all the belts at FW, except for WBO, because Oscar Valdez has that belt.

    Valdez too green to join this tournament imo.

    Boxing is truly lucky that the new President of Showtime happens to be a former Golden Boy promoter.

    He made boxing the main focus for Showtime Sports.

    FWIW, he was also the one that brokered the deal with CBS to put Thurman/Porther on CBS primetime TV, not Haymon.
