Mitchell vs Arreola card could be moved to Sept. 7 after Chavez-Vera postponement

Al Bello

Move would be to pair live fights with third episode of Mayweather-Canelo All Access.

Following the postponement of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr's September 7 fight against Brian Vera, there is already talk of the September 6 Showtime card, headlined by Seth Mitchell vs Chris Arreola, moving back one day from September 6 to the following night. The bouts were originally scheduled for Friday night in Indio, California, so as to not go head-to-head with Chavez Jr at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

That is far from a confirmed move, but the idea behind moving the fights back a day, Showtime's Stephen Espinoza tells Bad Left Hook, would be to pair the live event with the third episode of Showtime's "All Access: Mayweather-Canelo" series, giving the boxing documentary series a stronger lead-in audience, and one that obviously ties in better than anything else that could be in that time slot.

My first thought on moving the card back a day was that it was basically irrelevant and pointless, but I had failed to consider the All Access connection, which legitimately makes a lot of sense. Given that the fights are three weeks away, there are still plenty of potential roadblocks to making the move a reality, but it will be explored, at least.
