New York -- With a potential December Lennox Lewis-Vitali Klitschko bout on hold until 2004, HBO PPV is finalizing plans for Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard
Hopkins to fight on separate pay-per-view cards this fall.

Heavyweight champion Jones may fight hard-hitting Corrie Sanders on Nov. 8,
while Bernard Hopkins could meet William Joppy in a super middleweight
unification bout on Dec. 6 or Dec. 13, said HBO senior vice president of sports
operations Mark Taffet.
