— James Kirkland (30-1, 27 KOs) has signed to face Carlos Molina (19-4-2, 6 KOs) in an HBO co-feature with Erik Morales on Jan. 28. Houston is rumored to be the home for this card.

— The Tavoris Cloud (23-0, 19 KOs)-Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18 KOs) bout for Cloud’s IBF light heavyweight title on Dec. 31 has been canceled due to a hand injury suffered by Erdei. The complete event, including the Rico Ramos-Guillermo Rigondeaux WBA junior featherweight contest has also been canceled. Showtime, who was going to broadcast the championship double header, is looking to rescheduled Ramos-Rigondeaux as well as Tavoris Cloud against a new challenger.

— Junior middleweight contender Pawel Wolak (29-2-1, 19 KOs) announced his retirement via his official Twitter and Facebook accounts. Wolak dropped a unanimous decision last Saturday to Delvin Rodriguez in a rematch of their July fight, which is on the short list of Fight of the Year candidates.

— In a battle of heavyweight journeymen, Tony Grano (18-2-1, 14 KOs) will face Brian Minto (35-4, 22 KOs) on Jan. 28 at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY in a title eliminator for the NABF heavyweight title.
