Miranda vs Despaigne Rematch: Both Sides Interested

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised by promoters Leon Margules and Luis DeCubas Sr., that both sides are intersted in staging a rematch of Friday's exciting light heavyweight clash between Edison Miranda (34-6, 29KOs) and Yordanis Despaigne (9-1, 4KOs).

"Yordanis would have no problem with fighting him again," DeCubas told BoxingScene.com.

The fight, which took place at the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, had non-stop fireworks. In the fifth round, as the action was heating up even further, Miranda was disqualified for a low blow. It was Miranda's third infraction. He lost two points in the earlier rounds for repeated low blows. The fight was televised live by ESPN.

"It was a great fight. I think we need to see this fight go to a finish," Margules told BoxingScene.com.
