Lateef Kayode in Talks To Join The Top Rank Stable

By Rick Reeno

Steve Feder, manager of cruiserweight contender Lateef Kayode (18-0, 14KOs), advised BoxingScene.com that there are ongoing discussions to have his boxer join the Top Rank stable. Feder has been speaking with Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum and everything looks "positive" so far.

Kayode was last seen in the ring a year ago, fighting Antonio Tarver to a twelve round draw. The fight was later changed to a no-contest after Tarver tested positive for a banned substance.

Feder indicates that Kayode, still trained by Freddie Roach, would return to action as full fledged heavyweight. Kayode has already bulked up to 218-pounds, says Feder.

Kayode is the ultimate paper tiger -- very limited skills who's been handled with kid gloves by his management because they know that the 1st real guy he faces destroys him.....

Kayode should stay at Cruiser. He is gonna get KO'd at heavyweight.

going 2 heavy, IMO, not a smart move...2 small...if he wants 2 test his medal quick, take on Andy Ruiz, I like the guy, but he needs 2 tone up, get some muscle & strength & drop 15 more #'s....
