Undefeated welterweight and frequent Shobox fighter Luis Abregu of Argentina is another fighter under strong consideration to fight Johsua Clottey on December 5, reports Rick Reeno.
Abregu (28-0, 23 KO) had an excellent four-round brawl in May with Irving Garcia, the fight coming the night before Hatton-Pacquiao and thus losing the buzz it might have had as a tremendous Shobox main event. His record is pretty hollow, and despite showing good power, he'd be a massive underdog against Clottey, who is tremendous defensively, has a great chin, and is a humongous potential step up in class for Abregu.
Reeno also says that Jesus Soto Karass (24-3-3, 16 KO) has also been mentioned, but he's not likely. Karass is currently scheduled to fight Alfonso Gomez on the Cotto-Pacquiao undercard on November 14.
Abregu looks to be one of the frontrunners to land they Clottey fight, along with Kendall Holt, who was reported yesterday as a possible opponent.
