By Ryan Burton

Former welterweight champion Joshua Clottey reached out to BoxingScene.com to speak about a potential showdown with Kermit Cintron. Clottey said the offer he received for the fight was very low. "The offer was too low for this fight. I won't get into specifics but it wasn't a fair offer."

A fight between the Ghana native and the Boricua has been discussed as a potential co-feature bout under the Brandon Rios versus Urbano Antillon lightweight title fight that takes place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA on July 9th. The main event will be broadcast by Showtime Championship Boxing and the co-feature would also be televised.

Clottey advised BoxingScene.com that he has no problem facing the former welterweight title holder but wants to be compensated fairly. "I just want to be paid fairly. I am not asking for crazy money. All they have to do is make me a fair offer and I will fight Cintron. Cintron is a good fighter and a former champion. We both should be paid fairly."

Clottey also said that Cintron has twice turned down the opportunity to face him. "I was supposed to fight Cintron twice and he didn't want to fight me. I don't know what the reason was. Make me a fair offer and I will be ready to fight him. I have been working out in the gym, staying shape."

Clottey hasn't fought since losing a one sided decision to Manny Pacquiao last March. Cintron hasn't fought since losing to Paul Williams last May. A fight between the two former world champions would put the winner in the mix to face one of Top Rank's welterweights or junior middleweights such as Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito (if he is medically cleared to fight), Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Vanes Martirosyan or Mike Jones.

Cintron's name has also been mentioned as a possible opponent for Manny Pacquiao down thge road.
