Canelo-Clottey Clash in Talks For December

By Rick Reeno

According to industry sources, former champion Joshua Clottey (38-4, 22KOs) - and not James Kirkland - is currently the frontrunner to face Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KOs) on a televised date in December.

Canelo's team have confirmed that Clottey, who dominated Anthony Mundine in April, is one of the leading contenders.

Clottey's promoter, Joe DeGuardia, told BoxingScene.com that he's had discussions with Golden Boy Promotions regarding a fall fight with Canelo.

"We've had talks. I think it's a great fight and I hope it happens," DeGuardia told BoxingScene.com.

The big question, in the industry, is whether or not HBO will secure Canelo's next return. The Mexican star's last five fights were carried by Showtime, but multiple sources indicate that HBO is absolutely in the running for the December fight.

u all r sleepin on Clottey, I don't expect him to UD Canelo, and I've only watched the mundine fight since he's been back, but he looked alright in that fight, I've always been a somewhat fan of Clottey and wouldn't mind watching this fight. If Clottey throws punches, then I think it'll be a grea...

Take it as a "tune up" and experience it as a mistake.

I don't know how anybody can defend Clottey of Kirkland. I rather it be vs Cotto because that fight is ripe right now
