If K9 wants his big fight he better win because a win here gurantees him a fight with Cotto in June.Comment by -PBP- on 12-14-2012
Ishe Smith with Mayweather Promotions. If he wins they'll probably throw him on the undercard of the May 4th card against Carlos Molina or somebody and market it as an event with "4 world title fights" or some ****.Comment by hitking on 12-14-2012
