Alibi Ike Quartey May Get Winky For December 2 Date
Now we may know why Lou DiBella isn't yelling for Ike Quartey to have a rematch of his Saturday night decision loss to Vernon Forrrest. Alibi Ike, although a unanimous decision loser to the Viper at the Garden, appears to have come out a winner.
Numerous sources tell FightNightNews.com that DiBella is about lock down a December 2 date for Quartey against Winky Wright.
There is also speculation brewing about a fight in the near future between Kassim Ouma, who took DiBella prospect Sechew Powell to school, and Forrest.
Forrest preferred a title bout, but the cards aren't falling his way, as it seems Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather is tapping IBF junior middleweight champ Cory Spinks and not Carlos Baldomir, the welterweight king, for a November 4 date in Las Vegas.
Baldomir, the conquering hero from Argentina who upset Zab Judah and then Arturo Gatti, seems left off the dance card for the balance of 2006 unless he accepts smaller money to fight Bob Arum's bogeyman, Antonio Margarito.
