Golden Boy has been busy over the past few days, and there are a lot of potential new fights to add to the docket for the coming months. Looking ahead to October, and the company is planning several different cards, each loaded up with some intriguing names and contests. Here’s a rundown of what’s been talked about so far.

Danny Garcia vs. Erik Morales II

Apparently, the company thinks that Garcia vs. Morales II is a good idea. They are putting the Garcia vs. Morales rematch as the headline event of the opening of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on October 20, according to RingTV.com.

The rest of the card is going to be filled with Brooklyn fighters, as well as other locals from NYC. The lists includes potentially Paulie Malignaggi, Daniel Jacobs, Peter Quillin, Dmitriy Salita and Eddie Gomez.

Malignaggi was originally slated as the headline fighter, but a high profile opponent suitable to that billing couldn’t be readily found.

Showtime is slated to televise the featured bouts.

Adrien Broner & Seth Mitchell Doubleheader in Atlantic City

RingTV is also reporting that on October 6th in Atlantic City, Adrien Broner and Seth Mitchell will headline a presumably HBO-backed card at Boardwalk Hall. Mitchell will take on Jonathan Banks, whom he was supposed to face this summer before an injury sidelined him for a time.

Broner will be in a Lightweight fight against an opponent to be named, although hopefully a high caliber one.

To support this bill, several big names are being floated, including Keith Thurman and Gary Russell Jr.

So, like we said, a busy few days for Golden Boy and some interesting new fights to start looking forward to this fall. Keep on checking back with us for more boxing news and rumors all day long.
