K9 did just win a fight and gbp did say that angulo would be fighting before the year ends but who knows if it will be cotto because of angulos visa issues
Almost forgot about vanes and Lara but I think they are fighting each other, correct me if I'm wrong.
If anything, Angulo would get a K-9 fight. I know it sucks for him to get a title shot after being KO'd by Kirkland last year, but K-9 really doesn't deserve a big fight. If he's smart, then he'd take an Angulo fight in Mexico, but knowing his delusional ass, he will call himself "sitting out" for a big money fight, while acting like that IBF title means something.
See where it got him thus far, nothing more than a Spinks rematch. That's evidence enough...
Im not sure about that Vanes/Lara fight, that is a TR/GBP thing. Vanes said that he signed a contract, but I dont think it holds much weight if the other party hasn't signed. Now that I think about it, if a TR fighter (Vanes) has signed it, then 90% of the teeth-pulling has been, so that fight may just happen.

well cotto seemed to get roughed up by clottey in there first fight, a fight at 154 could be great, or it could be terrible due to nobody knowing clottey, and if they do all they remember is the pacman fight, and the lay off could take its toll since he was a fairly athletic fighter.
I dont see it being such a bad fight, but Clottey has nothing to lose, so Miguel may want to think twice. I haven't seen the first fight in a while, but I remember watching it, and Cotto had a rough night.
Clottey has had only 1 fight since the Pac fight (Calvin Green on the Chavez/Rubio untelevised card), but I still think he gives Cotto a rough night. If they promote this fight well, then it wont be such a huge step backwards. Im wishing that Clottey would have done something notable this year, to even be mentioned for a Cotto rematch, but something's telling me that its too late.
