Lomachenko vs. Russell: Robert Guerrero, Devon Alexander to return on same card

Al Bello

Robert Guerrero and Devon Alexander will make their returns to the ring on June 21, the same Showtime card that will feature the Gary Russell Jr and Vasyl Lomachenko fight.

The June 21 Showtime card has shaped up to be a solid one as not only will it have the anticipated showdown between Vasyl Lomachenko and Gary Russell Jr., but will now also feature the returns of Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and Devon Alexander in separate bouts. Guerrero will take on Yoshihiro Kamegai (24-1-1, 21 KO's) in what is being announced as the main event. Alexander will will fight fringe contender Jesus Soto-Karass. The card will take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Guerrero has done literally nothing in the ring since dropping a wide decision to Floyd Mayweather last May. Since then, the biggest thing of note pertaining to him has been his conflict with Golden Boy Promotions. He was reportedly going to court over the dispute, but things must have been patched up somewhat for him to be getting back in the ring.

Alexander has been inactive since his decision loss to Shawn Porter in December. That loss doesn't appear as bad after Porter steamrolled Pauiie Malignaggi in April. Alexander's opponent, Soto-Karass, is a very sturdy slugger who will come to fight. Alexander is certainly the quicker of the two, but Soto-Karass will be on him the entire night. Alexander has been campaigning on Twitter to get a fight with Floyd Mayweather because of his own win over Marcos Maidana a couple of years ago. As unlikely as it seems, you never know what could happen, and a win would put him right back in the mix. A rematch with Porter wouldn't seem all that unlikely either.

The contracts for the Lomachenko - Russell Jr. fight have reportedly been signed so it's actually going to happen. Better get in your last few TBA jokes while you can. Despite not being given the main event slot, it's the best matchup on the card, and feels like there are endless possibilities to what could happen. I'm excited for the fight, and happy that both parties have decided to go through with it.
