There is a possibility junior welterweight contenders Dierry Jean and Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis could fight for an elimination bout towards a world title shot, promoter Steven Bash told BoxingScene.com.

The IBF put out a call to contenders as to who was available to fight for the number one ranking, which is currently vacant. Lamont Peterson is the current IBF world title holder, recently defending the title against Kendall Holt.

Bash spoke about the possibility of Jean and Pendarvis facing one another last week. Both fighters are ranked in the top 10 in the IBF rankings at 140 pounds. Jean is ranked number three, while Pendarvis is ranked number seven.

Before negotiations would have begun, one obstacle was Victor Cayo, who was ranked number four by the IBF. Cayo lost this past Friday night to Emmanuel Taylor by knockout in the eighth round.

“We watched the Cayo knockout and we were sent a notice by the IBF on Saturday morning,” said Bash, who is representing Pendarvis. “(Because Pendarvis was the next highest available contender) Mookie was in line for the eliminator and we accepted the fight.”

Bash acknowledged that Jean also accepted the opportunity to fight for the number one ranking. There will be a negotiating period between both sides until the March 22nd deadline, which was set by the IBF.

If no agreement is made, then the IBF could order a purse bid for the bout. However, Bash is confident that a deal could be reached between both sides.

“I think this is an easy fight to make. We feel very good about it. Obviously, the numbers have to be right for Mookie and there has to be an agreement on all parties involved before there is a fight.”

According to Bash, the fight could possibly be shown on a future “ShoBox” telecast, sometime in May.

“We would like the fight to take place in Southern California.”

In the event Jean-Pendarvis does not get made, a fight featuring Pendarvis could possibly take place in the Los Angeles suburb of Long Beach.

“The goal is to make the fight between Mookie and Jean and that we could co-promote it,” said Bash, who co-promotes boxing cards in Southern California with Kahren Harutyunyan.

Pendarvis (17-3-2, 6 KOs) is coming off a stoppage victory over Michael Clark after the fifth round on December 21st. The Haitian-born Jean (24-0, 16 KOs) stopped Juan Jesus Rivera in the second round on February 16th. He is promoted by Camille Estefan.
