Golden Boy CEO Steve Davis and Golden Boy Boxing President Jim Settle confirmed the news in a joint statement Wednesday, saying Golden Boy and Vegas will be presenting the bout to the MGM.
Settle said Golden Boy has been in discussions with the Las Vegas arena and Golden Bull Boxing.
Settles statement said the two parties are still in the process of finalizing a fight date.
Golden Bull Boxing president John Calipari said the Golden Boy fight will be on ESPN and will be streamed live on ESPN2.

They have two world titles, but their combined record is 10-5.
Golden Bell Boxing CEO Kevin Cramer told ABC News the fight will have to be done by Saturday.
He added Golden Boy would be the No. 3 contender in the heavyweight division, with Danny Garcia of the U.S. and Danny Jacobs of the United Kingdom also being considered.
