PPV in April.

Executives said the long-awaited match could be formally announced as soon as
this week.

Meanwhile, negotiations for the site and the date (April 6 or 13) were
continuing as of press time, with an announcement about those particulars
expected shortly thereafter.

Meanwhile, HBO PPV will present an Oscar De La Hoya-Fernando Vargas bout May

The tussle, from Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas, will sell for a suggested
$49.95.
