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.
