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.

Clottey is way past it at this point. Not sure why people are hyping him up. Best win he ever had was against a small Corrales. He's come short against Margarito, Cotto, Pac. This is a showcase fight for canelo…

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
