It was rumored that he would be back on September 15 on the Canelo Alvarez-Josesito Lopez card. His opponent has been confirmed as Jonathan Bank by K2 promotion CEO Tom Loeffler yesterday, the same fighter who he was originally set to duel with.
Former 130 lb WBO champion Adrien Broner will also be on the card making his debut in the lightweight division. Fresh off his one sided thrashing of title contender Vicente Escobedo, a week ago in his hometown of Cincinnati.

No opponents have been named as of yet but most fans have been craving for a showdown with Philadelphia super lightweight contender ‘Hammerin’ Hank Lundy providing he wins Friday night.
Blue chip prospect Keith ‘One Time” Thurman will see action that night. Coming of his first fight on HBO, He looked impressive in his knockout of Mexican tough guy, Omar Lora.
