Malignaggi vs Judah: Trout vs Lara, Bika vs Dirrell added to SHO broadcast

US PRESSWIRE

It looks like we'll have a tripleheader from Showtime on December 7, with Paulie Malignaggi facing Zab Judah in the main event.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer has told Fight Hype that the Malignaggi-Judah fight for December 7 on Showtime has been finalized, and that there are two undercard bouts set for the TV broadcast.

In one fight, we'll see Austin Trout face Erislandy Lara in a matchup of 154-pound contenders, which had been rumored for September 14 but didn't come through. Trout (26-1, 14 KO) lost his WBA "regular" title to Canelo Alvarez on April 20 in San Antonio in his last fight, but that came after a win over Miguel Cotto in December 2012.

Lara (18-1-2, 12 KO) last fought on June 8, stopping Alfredo Angulo in the 10th round. That's been his only fight in 2013. In 2012, he went 2-0-1, beating Ronald Hearns and Freddy Hernandez easily before going to a dull technical draw with Vanes Martirosyan.

Also on the show, Sakio Bika will defend the WBC super middleweight title against Anthony Dirrell. Bika (32-5-2, 21 KO) won the belt on June 22, beating Marco Antonio Periban for the vacant championship, which had been stripped from Andre Ward. Dirrell (26-0, 22 KO) easily stopped Anthony Hanshaw in July in his last fight.
