Boxing's Barclays Center debut shapes up as year's most stacked card

Brooklyn's brand-new Barclays Center will host boxing for the first time on October 20, and Showtime and Golden Boy Promotions have put together a loaded card featuring four world title fights.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Full lineup for Showtime's October 20 show at the Barclays Center, which will be hosting boxing for the first time:

WBC/WBA Junior Welterweight Title
Danny Garcia (24-0, 15 KO) vs Erik Morales (52-8, 36 KO)

WBA Welterweight Title
Paulie Malignaggi (31-4, 7 KO) vs Pablo Cesar Cano (25-1-1, 19 KO)

WBO Middleweight Title
Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam (27-0, 17 KO) vs Peter Quillin (27-0, 20 KO)

IBF Welterweight Title
Randall Bailey (43-7, 37 KO) vs Devon Alexander (23-1, 13 KO)

There will also be Showtime Extreme undercard fights as always, and the off-TV undercard has plenty of familiar names, too. Luis Collazo is scheduled to face Steve Upsher Chambers in a welterweight bout, Danny Jacobs will be returning to the ring, hot prospect Eddie Gomez will be in action, and also, Dmitriy Salita will be there, and I worry he'll be put on TV because of Golden Boy's apparent desire to do Malignaggi-Salita in Brooklyn as a local draw sort of fight. Not because that's some horrible idea business-wise, it's just Salita isn't a contender.
