Jayson Velez-Salvador Sanchez II in Play For Cotto-Trout

By Rey Colon

According to sources, Mexico's Salvador Sanchez II (30-4-3, 18 KO's) has emerged as a leading candidate to face undefeated Puerto Rican featherweight Jayson 'La Maravilla' Velez (19-0 and 1 4 KO's) on December 1 in Madison Square Garden in New York, which features a very anticipated main event with Austin Trout (25-0, 14 KO's) staking his WBA "regular" 154-pound title against former three-time world champion Miguel Cotto (37-3 and 30 KOs).

Velez was going to face Billy Dibb (35-1, 21 KO's) for IBF featherweight championship, but Showtime would not approve the fight. Another possible option that was meantioned, WBC featherweight champion Daniel Ponce de Leon (44-4, 35 KO's), might happen at a later date.

This is a good fight for Velez and it might be better for him since Dib might have been too much too soon.

nice to see Valez still got the date and can fight on the card.

I don't really think much of either of them, but this should be interesting.
