ESPN Deportes’ Salvador Rodriguez revealed some tantalizing details about DAZN’s yesterday. Though the crux of the article concerns Matchroom’s plans to have Roman Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada share a card before eventually meeting in a rematch, the final paragraph names a number of potential marquee matchups.

By month:

September: A rebooked clash between Jorge Linares and Javier Fortuna. The fight was set to take place a week from today before Linares tested positive for COVID; though Golden Boy attempted to salvage the date, they ultimately elected to postpone it yesterday.

October: The aforementioned Gonzalez/Estrada card, which Rodriguez’s sources claim will be on the 3rd or the 17th. Considering that a 17th date would pit it against Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Teofimo Lopez, the former might be the better idea. In addition, DAZN “hopes” to stage Devin Haney’s previously discussed return against Yuriorkis Gamboa and a middleweight clash pitting Jaime Munguia against the resurgent Tureano Johnson.

November: Also on the “hope” list is Gennadiy Golovkin’s erstwhile clash with Kamil Szeremeta. The fight was first targeted for February, then March, then April, then June.
