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 Nov. 8,
while Bernard Hopkins could meet William Joppy in a supermiddleweight
unification bout Dec. 6 or 13, Home Box Office senior vice president of sports
operations Mark Taffet said.
