A significant blow to the Manny Pacquiao - Shane Mosley pay-per-view card
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (April 14, 2011) Doghouse Boxing
I’m sure you’ve read by now but the rematch of one of the best bouts of 2010 is a no-go after Humberto Soto has decided to pass on the rematch with Urbano Antillon. It looks like he’s in the process of leaving Top Rank/Zanfer Promotions, believing that he is owed a significant amount of money and his contract expired soon. He has retained the services of attorney Mike Miller (which makes it a deadbolt lock that he will take his talents to Golden Boy Promotions).

This is a significant blow to the Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley pay-per-view card because the main event has come under criticism and it was this fight that had the hardcore fan hooked into buying this show. Now, Top Rank has less than three weeks to come up with a suitable replacement, which in truth, will be impossible.

In the aftermath, it looks like Antillon will now face WBA lightweight titlist Brandon Rios on July 9th on Showtime.
