This is obviously completely speculative, but after reading the below update, the double header nature of the fights and the boxers involved made me think that this could practically be the first round of the May-Per-View 2013 tournament. I did read what FightHype had on the apparently fading Alexander/Malignaggi negotiations, but I think that he'd probably lose to Alexander anyway and definitely to Berto, or Ortiz, so no big deal if Alexander fights somone else.
"Berto (28-1, 22 KOs) and Ortiz (29-3-2, 22 KOs) could meet on Jan. 28 at a site to be determined, if Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is able to work out a deal with HBO that includes a potential welterweight double-header that would include former WBC/IBF junior welterweight titleholder Devon Alexander (22-1, 13 KOs) against former IBF junior welterweight titleholder Paulie Malignaggi. (30-4, 6 KOs)."http://ringtv.craveonline.com/blog/170051-...r-ortiz-rematch
Berto/Ortiz and Alexander/Malignaggi may very well be on the way to being finalized real soon. Im not sure about Malignaggi being part of the tournament, but who knows. This will be a great double-header though!
