Our friend Corey Erdman talked to a hungover Lou DiBella yesterday about the possible coming options for the man who has arguably become the biggest fighter in his stable, middleweight world champion Sergio Martinez. Give it a listen.

DiBella says that they're "not immediately thinking about" a third fight with Paul Williams, as he assumes Paul will move down in weight and not look for a rubber match with Martinez. Lou also says that "nobody knows who the hell (Dmitry) Pirog is," and that they'd much rather fight Felix Sturm. But DiBella seems to really want a fight with Miguel Cotto, a natural welterweight who is now fighting at 154 pounds. The promoter says they'd move to a 155-pound catchweight to face Cotto, and also mentions Lucian Bute, sort of dismissing him now that Bute is signed with Showtime.

Corey also asked Lou about Andre Berto, and he says that if Shane Mosley is not available, he'd love to have Andre fight Manny Pacquiao, and takes a well-mannered swipe at a possible Pacquiao-Mosley fight. He also says Berto "would fight Canelo Alvarez in two seconds," but doesn't feel Golden Boy would go with it.

And finally, Lou weighed in on Celestino Caballero's options, saying he thinks there's no way Juan Manuel Lopez will fight Caballero, that he rules out Chris John because he doesn't think John will leave Indonesia to fight Caballero, and that he guesses that of the big names at 126, Yuriorkis Gamboa is the most likely to fight Caballero.
