Andy Ruiz-Lateef Kayode Discussed For Pacquiao-Rios

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a clash between Andy Ruiz Jr. (20-0, 14KOs) and Lateef Kayode (18-0, 14KOs) is being discussed for the Manny Pacquiao-Brandon Rios televised pay-per-view undercard that takes place in Macau, China on November 23rd.

The fight would be Kayode's first in the heavyweight division after spending his entire career campaigning as a cruiserweight.

Ruiz has been active, fighting three times this year while Kayode hasn't fought since last June when he battled Antonio Tarver to a draw. The fight was later ruled a no contest when Tarver tested positive for a banned substance.
