According to former champion Humberto Soto, he might sign a promotional agreement with Golden Boy Promotions in order to secure a future fight with fellow Mexican Erik Morales. A few months ago, Soto declared himself a free agent from Zanfer Promotions and Top Rank, although technically his contract with Top Rank had expired years ago. Since the announcement, several offers have been presented to Soto.

He returns on September 3 against Jose Alfaro in Los Mochis. The WBC's interim-junior welterweight title could be at stake. The full WBC title, currently vacant, is going to be on the line when Erik Morales faces Lucas Matthysse on September 17 in Las Vegas.

"It seems that we will sign with [Golden Boy President] Oscar [De La Hoya]. We already have a contract offer and that can help us get Morales," Soto said.
