Maciel to replace Foreman on Cotto-Martinez card

WBO #15 jr middleweight Javier “La Bestia” Maciel (28-3, 20 KOs) will now face Jorge “The Destroyer” Melendez (28-3-1, 26 KOs) on the June 7 Cotto-Martinez pay-per-view card from Madison Square Garden in New York City. Melendez was originally slated to face former WBA jr middleweight champion Yuri Foreman, who abruptly retired last week.

“The fight is already agreed. All parties have agreed and we are only missing minimum details,” confirmed Mario Margossian, head of Argentina Boxing Promotions and representative of Maciel.
