By Johnny Benz (Feb 15, 2008) Doghouse Boxing  
As Kelly Pavlik prepares to take on Jermain Taylor in a rematch this Saturday, Bob Arum, Pavlik's promoter is already laying the groundwork for Pavlik's next challenge.

According to a report out by Dan Rafael for ESPN, Pavlik's next fight could come against Felix "Tito" Trinidad. ESPN further reports the fight would happen on June 7 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Arum also told ESPN that another leading candidate is "Irish" John Duddy.

Arum confirmed to espn that he has spoken to Trinidad's promoter, Don King about making Pavlik-Trinidad. "We've talked," Arum said quoted on ESPN, adding: "Then King went down to Puerto Rico to meet with Trinidad last week. Then we spoke this week before he went to Germany and he said the meeting with the Trinidads went positively."

Arum wants the fight at 160. "If Trinidad can make that weight and provided the [revenue] split is right, we would love to make the fight," Arum said. "But I won't know for sure until I meet with King."
