This will be his second defense as the fight will be held on Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sept. 17. The Alvarez Gomez Fight Video will be shown below.

While Alvarez-Gomez will headline a card at the Staples Center, the fight will be shown as part of a split-site pay-per-view show on which Floyd Mayweather's return to action against Victor Ortiz after a a 16-month layoff to challenge welterweight titlist will headline a card in the HBO pay per view at the MGM Grand.

Schaefer said the telecast will open in Las Vegas, where 22-year-old junior welterweight prospect Jessie Vargas, a Mayweather protege from Las Vegas, will fight an opponent to be announced in a 10-rounder. Vargas (16-0, 9 KOs) opened eyes when he scored a sensational second-round knockout against veteran Walter Estrada on July 8.
The show will stay in Las Vegas for the next fight, the previously announced junior welterweight bout between Mexican star and former three-division champion Erik Morales, who will face fellow Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano (21-2, 9 KOs).

Gomez (23-4-2, 12 KOs), 30, lives in Southern California, but he is also from Alvarez's hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico, which ought to add some spice to the promotion.

Gomez, who starred on the first season of "The Contender" reality series, parlayed his fame from the show into a high-profile fight with the late Arturo Gatti and sent him into retirement with a seventh-round knockout in 2007.

Gomez lost his only previous title shot, a fifth-round knockout to then-welterweight titlist Miguel Cotto in 2008. But he has won five fights in a row after losing to Cotto.

Morales vs Cano Fight - Video, Analysis and More

Play Video Play Video
living legend Erik Morales will fight Pablo Cesar Cano, an unbeaten 21-year-old fellow Mexican. Video of the fight will be shown on September 17 “Star Power” show. “El Terrible” supposed bout with Argentine slugger Lucas Mattyhsse was cancelled after the latter pulled out of the ue to a virus. Cano will be the replacement opponent for the vacant WBC 140-pound belt.

Cano last fought in June and reportedly is in shape, say Golden Boy. Cano said “just bring him on,” when the fight with Morales was offered to him. The young fighter never fought the caliber of the likes of Morales and this will be his first time to fight outside of Mexico.

The question will be how he can handle the pressure performing in front of a large crowd. Now, with Golden Boy having done their best to find a short notice late replacement, Morales can focus his attention towards the 22-0-1(17) contender from Mexico City.

Perez is confident that his ward has all the tools to defeat Morales. Having twice trained Barrera to beat Morales, and also having worked with Marcos Maidana in his recent win over the 35-year-old great, Perez feels he will be able to come up with the perfect game-plan for his young fighter after reviewing video of Morales' fights. But it goes without saying how Cano is no Barrera or Maidana.

Maybe Cano, with his advantages in acceleration and reflexes, will be able to cull off an absolute agitated abutting week; possibly catastrophe the career of a fable in the process? It could happen. And Golden Boy accept at atomic appear up with a adolescent and best fighter for Morales. Given the abbreviate amplitude of time in which they had to work, the promoters could’ve done a lot worse.

Cano is realistically in a no-lose position. If he loses the action but acquits himself well, he will get due acclaim and be able to appear afresh at age 21, while if he wins, he hit’s the jackpot. Not alive abundant of annihilation about the fighter accepted as “El Demoledor,” it’s boxy to accomplish any affectionate of authentic pre-fight prediction. I accept to go with Morales, seeing as how he has every advantage afar from youth.

Play Video Play Video
Mexican legend Erik Morales will fight Lucas Matthysse on Sept. 17. Many are excited to watch the video of a potential barn burner fight. Being the last man to beat Manny Pacquiao, Morales is one of five Mexican fighters to have earned title belts in three divisions and his name in the boxing history books is already secured.

But during a national conference call on Wednesday to promote his upcoming clash with hard-punching Lucas Matthysse, the aging fighter found himself defending his right to be in such a high-profile matchup.

"People always say, 'Oh, Erik Morales is old,' and I hear it," said Morales, speaking through a translator. "The one thing that’s true is that when you do things right and you don’t cut corners, things come out [well.] The result is there and you’ll see it Sept. 17." Morales-Matthysse was sanctioned as a title fight after the WBC stripped Tim Bradley (27-0, 11 knockouts) of its belt.

The eventual winner of Morales-Matthysse will likely face WBA and IBF titleholder Amir Khan (26-1, 18 KOs) in December. Khan, Morales and Matthysse are all managed by Golden Boy Promotions. Morales (51-7, 35 KOs) is trying to become become the first Mexican to win a title in a fourth weight division. "I think that it's OK that they [WBC officials] are giving me this opportunity because of my past, and my history and my past fights. I think think that it's a valid [decision,]" said Morales, 34.

"The odds were 7 to 1 against me, and everybody thought that I was going to get smashed and walked over," said Morales. "But I was always motivated, and I always knew in my mind what I had to do to win it." Against Matthysse, however, Morales plans to pick up where he left off against Maidana.

"We've always liked challenges. We've always liked difficult fights. That's the reason the Matthysse fight was decided on. He's a very strong, very formidable opponent," said Morales. "You know, people have always thought that they're going to finish me and end my career and knock me out. But that's what gives me the hunger, the strength and the motivation to prove them wrong."
