Mayweather Promotions has announced the opponents for its fighters on the “ShoBox: The New Generation” card it is putting on Dec. 6 (Showtime, 11:50 p.m. ET/PT) at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Wash.
In the main event, super middleweight J'Leon Love (15-0, 8 KOs) will face Lajuan Simon (23-4-2, 12 KOs), who fought for a middleweight world title and got starched in the first round by Gennady Golovkin in December 2011 and has not fought since.
Also on the televised quadrupleheader, lightweight Mickey Bey (18-1-1, 9 KOs) faces Carlos Cardenas (20-6-1, 13 KOs); super middleweight Badou Jack (15-0-1, 10 KOs) squares off with Rogelio Medina (31-4, 25 KOs) and middleweight Chris Pearson (9-0, 8 KO's) faces Acacio Ferreira (14-0-1, 12 KOs).
Love will be fighting for the first time since a no decision against Gabe Rosado in May, a fight Love won by split decision before the result was changed to a no decision when he tested positive for a banned diuretic he used to help him make weight for the middleweight contest. Love was fined and suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Jack is coming off a draw against Marco Antonio Periban in Las Vegas on Sept. 12, two nights before his promoter, Floyd Mayweather Jr., cruised past Canelo Alvarez.
Bey is winless in his past two fights. In February, a third-round knockout win was changed to a no decision because Bey tested positive for extremely high levels of testosterone. In his July return, Bey, way ahead on all three scorecards, got knocked out by John Molina in the final minute of the 10-round fight.
