Boxingsocialist had a chance to catch up with former IBF Champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage. He has been busy prepping for a newborn that is on the way. He has been training fighters as well as training himself. He knows at anytime a fight might pop up and he wants to be ready. I asked him who he would like to fight at 154lbs and he said alot of the fighters have dates already. He doesn't want to wait and sit around. He wants to stay busy.
So K9 threw out two names to us. One of them is Sergio Martinez. Either at 154lbs or 160lbs. Sergio Martinez is considered by most to be in the top 3 pound 4 pound. Floyd Mayweather is rated by most as the number one but he already has a fight. Andre Ward has been rated by most as number two but he is a super middleweight. Then there is Sergio Martinez who is rated by most as the number three pound 4 pound. He fights at either 154lbs or 160lbs. That is right up K9's alley. Let Lou DiBella know that I would not mind fighting him. Tell Lou to contact me, he has my number.
Then there is Kell Brook. A rising superstar in the UK and he is going through opponents. He had a rough fight against Carson Jones the first time they fought. Kell ended up with a broken nose and he admitted afterwards that he wasn't at his best. He had minor injuries and could not train like he wanted to which led to his conditioning being a problem in the fight with a broke nose in which he had a very hard time breathing. He did face him in the rematch and stopped Carson Jones. He Promoter and Matchmaker stated he wanted a big fight for Kell Brook in the United States. Well that did not fall on deaf ears. K9 said he would welcome him to the United States with open arms and test the UK superstar. Right now Kell Brook is "supposed" to be scheduled to fight Vyacheslav Senchenko on Oct 26. We all know things can change at the drop of a hat. If Kell wants to come the beginning of the year then K9 will still be ready.
K9 is looking to stay busy with another fight before 2013 is out. So let's see if Sergio Martinez or Kell Brook will answer the call. K9 said he's not hard to find. Just contact me. I'm ready and willing. Bark Bark Bark ... Jesus for Life.
