Luis Abregu another potential opponent for Joshua Clottey

Luis Abregu (28-0, 23 KO) is under strong consideration to be Joshua Clottey's December 5 opponent. Abregu and former junior welterweight titlist Kendall Holt are the frontrunners.

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.
