Humberto Soto Claims He Wants a Big Fight Against Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana

After scoring yet another routine win against an overmatched, lousy opponent last night in Mexico, former super featherweight and lightweight titlist Humberto Soto says he wants a big fight in 2012, against either Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana at 140 pounds.

Soto defeated Adailton De Jesus last night, adding him to a 2011 hit list that previously included Motoki Sasaki, Jose Alfaro, and Fidel Monterrosa. All of that came after Soto competed in a grueling Fight of the Year candidate in December 2010 against Urbano Antillon, after which Soto ducked a rematch with his fellow Mexican, which was originally scheduled for May 7 as the main co-feature on the Pacquiao vs Mosley pay-per-view.

This is a slight change of direction for Soto's claims of wanting big fights, as he signed with Golden Boy Promotions in September allegedly in large part because he wanted to make a fight with Erik Morales, who also holds a title at 140 pounds.

Considering Soto's level of opposition since his wide 2007 loss to Joan Guzman, you can probably just take his talk for nothing more but chatter that he hopes makes him look good until he signs another lame fight. He's 31 years old and he just doesn't have anything on his record to back up the idea that he really wants to fight top guys.
