Urango-Bailey August 28th?

By Lee Bates

Word has it that IBF junior welter champion Juan Urango (21-2-1, 16 KOs) could defend his title against former world champion and mandatory challenger Randall Bailey (39-6, 35 KOs) Friday,August 28th. Its possible that the bout could take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida and possibly televised on ESPN 2 Friday Night Fights series. Urango promoted by Warriors Boxing is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to WBC champion Andre Berto but Urango`s title was not at stake. Bailey promoted by Lou Dibella is coming off of an impressive 4th round KO over then world ranked contender Francisco Figueroa. The fans would be the true winners in this type of fight as neither fighter takes a step back when fighting and each has serious knockout power.
