By Chris LaBate

According to promoter Lou DiBella, there are ongoing to discussions for a summer/fall bout between Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-6, 20KOs) and undefeated WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (18-0, 14KOs). DiBella is talking with Pirog's promoter Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions. Most of Manfredo's big defeats have taken place at the super middleweight limit or in the first season of The Contender reality show. Manfredo has won six bout since the 2007 knockout loss to Sakio Bika. Pirog is looking for a recognizable name to make his ring return in the United States.
