Quintana in the mix for Clottey; Holt unlikely

Dan Rafael reports that the still up in the air Joshua Clottey fight for December 5 might be clearing up a bit.

Clottey (35-3, 20 KO) has lost a fight with Shane Mosley, had his next fight date pushed up three weeks, turned down Sergio Martinez, been turned down by Kermit Cintron, and now just when it looked like the list had come down to two men -- Kendall Holt and Luis Abregu -- you can add another.

Former welterweight titleholder Carlos Quintana, who gave Paul Williams his only pro loss, has been inserted into the mix. Currently, Quintana is scheduled to co-headline a show in Puerto Rico, with Kermit Cintron in the main event against Juliano Ramos, on October 24. (That fight, by the way, will be offered on U.S. PPV for $24.95, which is a giant ripoff considering Cintron-Ramos is a laugher. That's a main event worthy of a $4.95 Go Fight Live show.)

If Quintana does land the Clottey fight, he'd be off of that card. Also, Rafael says that Kendall Holt is probably going to turn down the idea to fight Clottey, as he's really not looking to move up to welterweight. Holt may end up fighting in Montreal on December 11 against Herman Ngoudjo in an eliminator bout, with the winner getting a crack at junior welterweight titlist Juan Urango. Holt would be the favorite, but sometimes Ngoudjo actually looks like a top contender. He didn't earlier this year, when Urango punished and routed him in Montreal, a fight that featured a five-minute round thanks to the dynamite timekeeper.
