Ok based on the assumption of a win for both guys.. it looks like it's a Cotto/Clottey match then. If Clottey loses, it sets up a December match with DLH (I'm guessing) but if he wins it's Cotto/Clottey. This could be an entertaining bout, both talented boxers. But DLH/Cotto would do more for Cotto's career then a fight with Clottey would.Well not exactly. Assuming Miguel Cotto wins on Saturday night and Joshua Clottey defeats Zab Judah the following weekend; Bob Arum has the Puerto Rican star’s next opponent lined up.
Arum told El Nuevo Dia, “If Cotto and Clottey win, it will be easy for me to stage that fight (Cotto vs. Clottey) in Puerto Rico, since both fighters are with my company and I know that Cotto wants to fight again in his country and I know Clottey has no fear or objection to fighting him in Puerto Rico.”
According to Arum, HBO has a tentative date reserved for Cotto’s next fight and Clottey seems to be the next suitable opponent. “We have a reserved date with HBO.” Arum said. “But first Cotto has a great fight ahead of him with Margarito, so we will have to see.”
