Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has returned from London, where he attended the Summer Olympic Games to observe and to sign talent from the various countries that participated in the 2012 boxing tournament. Those signees, said Schaefer, would make their professional debuts on CBS on Sunday, Oct. 14, following an afternoon NFL game. As part of an agreement between Golden Boy, Showtime Sports and CBS Sports, the fighters' appearances would come a day after a Showtime-televised WBC junior featherweight title bout between beltholder Abner Mares against WBA bantamweight titleholder Anselmo Moreno, a WBO lightweight title bout matching contenders Richard Abril and Sharif Bogere and an appearance by undefeated featherweight prospect Gary Russell Jr. -- all of which are to be part of a planned boxing weekend from The Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
