While Cottomania has swept New York City, WBO light flyweight champion Ivan Calderon (32-0, 6 KOs) is getting some attention, too. Here the unbeaten ‘Iron Boy’ stands outside the legendary Madison Square Garden. Calderon will defend against two time world title challenger Rodel Mayol (25-3, 19 KOs) this Saturday. The bout will precede the main event of WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (33-1, 27 KOs) vs Joshua Clottey (35-2, 20 KOs). The Calderon/Mayol fight will be seen free in Puerto Rico not no TV in the U.S. Cotto/Clottey will be televised by HBO. Top Rank will promote the event.
