Sources close to the information have informed us that a deal has been reached between Brooklyn natives Zab Judah and Paulie Malignaggi, who will meet on December 7 in their hometown at Barclays Center. As FightHype.com previously reported, the proposed matchup between IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander and former jr. welterweight champion Amir Khan will not be taking place on that date. Instead, it looks like the Judah vs. Malignaggi matchup could become the main event.
We're also told that there's a strong possibility that the proposed matchup between hard-hitting welterweights Keith Thurman and Jesus Soto Karass, which was originally going to take place on Golden Boy's December 14 pay-per-view card headlined by Broner vs. Maidana, will likely be moved to the December 7 card to add more firepower to the event.
