Arum Wants Soto vs. Valero

Top Rank boss Bob Arum is pushing for a junior lightweight matchup featuring WBC titlist Humberto Soto and Edwin Valero for the Nov. 14 card in Las Vegas headlined by Cotto vs. Pacquiao.

Publicist Ricardo Jimenez noted that Arum has already indicated that he'd like both parties to come to an agreement for that fight, where the winner could be a future foe of Manny Pacquiao.

"It seems that negotiations are already underway," said Jiménez. "It's the fight that Arum wants and the only thing that could complicate things is the fight purse since a lot of if has already been set aside for the main event.

Valero said on Friday of last week that he was ready to submit to new examination in Nevada in order to try and regain his license to fight while commenting on his approval of Soto as an opponent.

"Nevada will give me new tests soon and if God willing, I'll be ready to fight in Las Vegas against the best, and I consider Soto to be one of the best so I'm willing to make the fight," said the Venezuelan.

For his part, Soto commented that although he wants the fight, he finds it difficult to make at this time.

"My first objective is to complete my last title defense on September 15 in Monterey and then we'll see," said Soto. "It's a fight I'd love to have but we shall see."
