J'Leon Love, Badou Jack, and Mickey Bey feature in Dec. 6 ShoBox

Mayweather Promotions has a four-fight ShoBox card set for December 6, and the named A-side players finally have official opponents.


Hey, remember ShoBox? Yeah, me too. Remember when it was good? I dunno, I remember the idea of it being good. Sometimes it was awesome. Usually it was just a show. Well, long story short, it's back on December 6, as Mayweather Promotions will present a quadruple-heaer at Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington. Definitely a prime location for a #MoneyTeam invasion. Shelton won't even know what hit it.

J'Leon Love (15-0, 8 KO) will return from his suspension in Nevada (stemming from a failed post-fight drug test) to take on Philly veteran LaJuan Simon (23-4-2, 12 KO) in a 10-round middleweight main event. Simon, 34, is a two-time world title challenger for no particularly good reason. He lost to Arthur Abraham by decision in 2009, and was sparked out in one round by Gennady Golovkin in December 2011, which also happens to be the last time he fought.

30-year-old super featherweight Mickey Bey (18-1-1, 9 KO) will be back in action against Venezuela's Carlos Cardenas (20-6-1, 13 KO). Cardenas hasn't fought since August 2012, when he was knocked out by Edgar Puerta.

30-year-old super middleweight Badou Jack (15-0-1, 10 KO) will face Mexico's Rogelio Medina (31-4, 25 KO). The good news here is that Medina has fought three times this year, going 1-2.

23-year-old junior middleweight prospect Chris Pearson (9-0, 8 KO) will open the show against 27-year-old Brazilian Acacio Ferreira (14-0-1, 12 KO), who has a paper-thin record and hasn't fought since December 2012.
