Bob Arum said Julio Cesar Chavez could fight Brian Vera next, and eventually, Andre Ward.
Kayode scores another KO
Lateef Kayode, the cruiserweight prospect from Nigeria, stopped journeyman Ed Perry of Lafayette, Ind., in the sixth round of a scheduled 10-round fight Friday in Santa Ynez, Calif.
Kayode (15-0, 14 KOs) won a decision in his pro debut and had KO'd every opponent since.
Perry (18-5-2, 11 KOs) had never been stopped in his six-year career. He also had never been down but hit the canvas twice on Friday, once when he took a knee in the fourth and again when he was counted out in the sixth.
Kayode trains with Freddie Roach in Hollywood, Calif.
