It went from May 31 to May 17 and is now back on for May 31. The deal has been finalized for former welterweight champions Shane Mosley (44-5, 37 KOs) and Zab Judah (36-5, 25 KOs) to fight each other on HBO pay-per-view. The fight is still likely heading to a Las Vegas venue.

Richard Schaefer, CEO for Golden Boy Promotions, told Dan Rafael that a packed undercard will compliment the main event.

Some of the bouts Schaefer is planning include a battle of junior lightweights with Jorge Barrios and Rocky Juarez, a rematch between junior featherweight champions Celestino Caballero and Daniel Ponce De Leon, and a rematch between super middleweights Sakio Bika and Jaidon Codrington, who fought a fight of the year battle in the finale of The Contender's third season.

The pay-per-view, set to be called "High Stakes," will feature four fights from start to finish, where it's a must win situation for both combatants.

I told yall this fight was happening on the 31st. I guess Elsewhere was right this time. I like all the match ups on the card.

I don't like Bika-Codrington. That's a waste of time. I'd rather see a less entertaining, relavent bout.

Its a fight for the moderate fight fan. See they know these fighters from The Continder therefor they are big stuff in there eyes. But we know who they really are.

Bika-Codrington is gonna be another slugfest as long as it lasts.

Is Ponce De-Leon really taking the fight? If yes, well, good. But I Think caballero win outbox him again..

Good card so far

De leon actually looked allot beter lately his boxing has improved and if his defense can hold up it can be an exciting fight. I see Caballero as a smaller version of Williams. maybe even less power.

The bika vs codrington fight just convinced me to actually buy the card. I've been wiating to see that rematch. I know some of you don't care for it, but this is a good card.

What you got against entertaining fights?
Nothing. I love entertaining fights, but I'd rather see a less entertaining fight between two guys that actually matter.

Didn't Codrington lose AGAIN since the contender? I just can't dig that. Bika TKO3.

De Leon - Caballero has me pumped. I never saw the first fight, but I heard that Caballero just outboxed him with ease.

I agree..i saw their fight i don't wanna see it again. Rather see better known fighters then these guys. I'm interested in the Judah-Mosely fight..sounds like it'll be good. The Cotto-Judah fight was good who knows if Judah will look good losing again lol. But iono i don't think Mosely will win cause Judah is fast. But then again i haven't seen enough Mosely fights to say that
