Latest reports say that Hlatchwayo will get down to Light-welter and it is Ricky's IBO title that is at stake. Apparently Hlatchwayo fought at lightweight as recently as 2004 and is small for a welterweight.

Lazcano would be a very disappointing opponent, given that he hasn't fought in 15 months and that last fight was a loss to Vivian Harris, who then was knocked out by Junior Witter in his next fight. Witter's people would have a field day, though.

Must say I'd be disappointed with Lazcano as an opponent (which is looking likely) having said that I'll still go.

Enjoyed the Pavlik vs. Taylor catchweight fight this morning. Pavlik deserved to win, but I thought it was closer than the judges scored (117-111, 116-112 and 115-113).

A crossroads for both fighters really. Taylor's camp reckons he can't make the middleweight limit anymore and is destined to step up to super-middle; Taylor certainly looked lively at the heavier weight.

As for Pavlik, he could dominate for a while. Looks like Gary Lockett is the mandatory, whilst his promoter is pushing for Felix Trinidad at MSG (possibly around the Puerto Rican Day Parade!). John Duddy is also a money spinner. I reckon Pavlik would beat all three; bit concerned that Trinidad is becoming a circus. Would be interesting for Pavlik to fight one or two of these guys then take on either Abraham for the undisputed title or ‘Winky’ Wright.

Just heard the following - not sure if its confirmed or just rumour

Oscar De La Hoya will fight Steve Forbes ( contender II runner up)
Karl Pryce's biggest problem is that he lacks heart or a pair of bollox. It's ok though because their Leon will just go and get him a new pair.

I think that Mayweather is more interested in fleecing the wrestling public these days than a match up with Hatton. He comfortably beat Hatton and tbh I don't think anyone is really that interested in a re-match over in the US because it was pretty one-sided.
