A rematch between Chris “The Dragon” John and Rocky Juarez has been added to a prospective card that would feature three major title fights on June 27. Also, the card would take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Richard Schaefer CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, is hoping to close the deal soon. “I’m working on it like crazy,” he said. “If I pull it off, it’ll be huge.”

John, the WBA featherweight titleholder from Indonesia, and Juarez fought to a draw on Feb. 28 in Houston. It was Juarez’s fourth failed attempt at winning a major title.
“Rocky knows this would be his last chance,” Schaefer said. “If you ask him where he turned in the best performance of his career, though, he’d tell you Staples Center, when he lost (a split decision) to Marco Antonio Barrera.

“Chris John is a great fighter. A lot of people thought he won the fight (last month). John has the opportunity to capture the U.S. market, as well. I’m told there are 40,000 Indonesians living in L.A. And John in Indonesia is like Manny Pacquiao in the Philippines.”
