- Updated: September 18, 2015
The undercard for the November 21 showdown between Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto appears to be taking shape.
According to Dan Rafael, Roc Nation is putting the finishing touches on a three fight deal for Andre Ward (28-0, 15 KO) with HBO that would have Ward as the co-feature on the pay-per-view in a light heavyweight bout.
An agreement has also been reached for a junior lightweight title fight between Takashi Miura and Francisco Vargas.
Miura (29-2-2, 22 KO) is coming off an impressive knockout victor over Billy Dib while Vargas (22-0-1, 16 KO) has picked up three consecutive stoppage victories against solid opponents that include Will Tomlinson and Juan Manuel Lopez.
Randy Caballero (22-0, 13 KO) is also looking to return on the card to defend his title against Lee Haskins (32-3, 14 KO) of England, who earned the interim bantamweight title while Caballero was recovering from a foot injury.
