Katie, bar the door. If the talking results in a fight, we've got another surefire 2009 Fight of the Year candidate coming next summer.

122-pound champion Israel Vazquez and titleholder Juan Manuel Lopez are showing respect for one another -- and also a desire to go toe-to-toe, perhaps in June, when Vazquez thinks he'll be ready to fight again.

People have already thrown the idea around, but can you imagine Top Rank getting a deal done to throw this on the card with Margarito-Cotto II?
