The July 12 undercard for the Canelo Alvarez vs Erislandy Lara PPV appears to be taking shape.

According to BoxingScene, a welterweight showdown between Devon Alexander and Jesus Soto Karass has been finalized for the July 12 PPV card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Alexander (25-2, 14 KO) is coming off a loss to against Shawn Porter, who took his IBF welterweight title. His only other loss came against Tim Bradley in 2011.

The always-tough Soto Karass (28-9-3, 18 KO) had a nice 2013 with wins over Selcuk Aydin and Andre Berto, but the year ended on a sour note for him as he lost via TKO against Keith Thurman in December.

Another name that has been mentioned for the Canelo-Lara undercard is fan-favorite Leo Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15 KO) though there has been no official word from Golden Boy regarding his participation.
