Cloud vs Erdei, K9 vs Latimore Double in The Works?

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised by multiple sources that Showtime is looking to put together a New Year's Eve double header.  Our sources have indicated to us that talks are on going for a possible clash that would pit IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (23-0) against former two division champion Zsolt Erdei (33-0) in the main event with IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (31-4) facing Deandre Latimore (22-3) in the televised co-feature. 

The card would be a co-promotion between Don King, who promotes Cloud and Bundrage, and Lou DiBella who promotes Erdei and co-promotes Latimore with Steve Smith's Rumble Time Promotions.

The likely landing place for the fight is Latimore's hometown of St. Louis, MO. When Latimore faced Cory Spinks in 2009 in a battle for hometown bragging rights (in addition to the then vacant IBF junior middleweight strap), nearly 10,000 fans showed up.

St. Louis native Ryan Coyne (18-0), who is ranked #7 by the WBA in the light heavyweight division is also likely to appear on the card. Coyne is also promoted by Don King and is a big ticket seller in his hometown.  

Our sources say that the fights are far from finalized but that the talks are ongoing.

If it doesn't happen it will be because Cloud doesn't want it or Don King demands some stupid ass options on Erdei.

If this actually happens, I'll be shocked.
