Golden Boy Promotions on Tuesday announced it has moved its card featuring a main event between heavyweights Chris Arreola and Seth Mitchell from Friday, Sept. 6 to Saturday, Sept. 7 at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio.
Golden Boy did not give a specific reason for the move. But it’s obvious it was made because a Top Rank Inc. card that was to feature super middleweights Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Brian Vera on Sept. 7 at Staples Center was postponed Monday because of a cut sustained by Chavez in sparring.
Arreola-Mitchell will be televised by Showtime. It will include a featherweight bout between former bantamweight/super bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez of Mexico and Efrain Esquivias of Carson.
Chavez-Vera was going to be televised by HBO.
