While there are reports of IBF junior middleweight belt-holder Cornelius 'K9' Bundrage (34-5, 19KOs) facing WBC middleweight champ Miguel Cotto in June, there is the distinct possibility that Bundrage could instead be facing 'the Desert Storm', Tim Bradley (31-1-1, 12KOs).
Promoter Bob Arum confirmed that Top Rank (which handles Bradley) has had serious discussions with Bundrage and he described the talks as "good."
"We've concluded and we're just waiting to get the dates from HBO," Arum told BoxingScene.com.
Could Bunrdage-Bradley be paired with Felix Verdejo on June 13th at the Theater at Madison Square Garden?
"That's a big possibility, we'll see. Or maybe it maybe that we'll do the fight in Mexico City," said Arum.
So if not Bundrage, who does Cotto fight in the summer?
Arum quipped - ''Well, let him fight (Gaby) Penagaricano (who is Cotto's adviser)."
