Marcos Maidana and Josesito Lopez are reportedly going to fight on April 20 on Showtime.
A potential April fight between Amir Khan and Josesito Lopez is off the table, with Humberto Soto and Marcos Maidana, respectively, potentially waiting in the wings.
Following an easy win over Carlos Molina on December 15, Amir Khan is scheduled to return to Showtime on April 13 or 20.
Promoter Richard Schaefer says that if Amir Khan wins on Saturday against Carlos Molina, he'd like to see Khan face Josesito Lopez in April. Lopez likes the idea, too.
Fan favorite Josesito Lopez is hoping to get back in the ring in January, following a big 2012 that saw him land a pair of Showtime main events, and the possible Upset of the Year.

Showtime's coverage of Canelo vs Lopez with their All Access series helped the show find its identity, with a longshot candidate for a truly memorable fight giving them the material, good and bad, needed for great TV.
