The Golden Shuffle

As you reach Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer at his offices in Los Angeles, you can hear that he is a bit breathless. The past few days have been extremely hectic for him as he looks to fill out the May 4th pay-per-view undercard featuring Floyd Maweather and Robert Guerrero from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But this much is clear, there will be no sprinkling of cinnamon on that show.
"’Canelo’ is not going to be on May 4th," said Schaefer of Saul Alvarez on Wednesday afternoon."He’s going to be fighting April the 20th on Showtime, live. It looks like it’s going to be from the Alamodome (in San Antonio) and it’s going to be against Austin Trout."

Just a few days ago, April 20th was announced as the date for an anticipated doubleheader at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California (.maxboxing/ponce-de-leon-vs-mares-signed) but now Schaefer is in the process of shifting his schedule around.
"Obviously, we have (Abner) Mares and (Daniel) Ponce done and we almost have (Marcos) Maidana and Josesito (Lopez) done and we’re going to find another date for that doubleheader and that’s what I’m working on. I really can’t tell you more. I’m going to be talking to the venue- meaning Home Depot Center- to look at availability and the TV network and so on. I’m going to be juggling all of these dates."
One date that’s being mentioned is May 18th( which was originally thrown around as a destination for a bout between Lucas Matthysse and Lamont Peterson). But this much is clear, Golden Boy is putting together a blockbuster spring ledger.
"I’m so busy, it’s crazy," said Schaefer, who still has to fill out his May 4th undercard.
