An attractive clash between former world champion Paul Malignaggi (26-2, 5 KOs) and unbeaten Mike Alvarado (26-0, 18 KOs) has been scratched from Top Rank’s big June 27 “Latin Fury 9” PPV card in Atlantic City. Word is Alvarado was injured in sparring. Malignaggi will likely stay on the card against another opponent. The name of Juan Diaz has been mentioned as a possible foe. The show is headlined by two world title bouts, the WBO super bantamweight championship between Juan Manuel Lopez and Olivier Lontchi, and the WBO bantamweight championship clash between Fernando Montiel and Eric Morel.
