John Duddy, a popular Irish boxer fighting out of New York, has been discussed as a possible opponent for former WBA light middleweight champion Yuri Foreman. Duddy (29-2, 18 KOs) is coming off of a one-sided loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on June 26. A 31-year old who hails from Derry, Duddy was initially a hot prospect until his star faded recently.

Yuri Foreman (28-1, 8 KOs) lost his title to Miguel Cotto on June 5. That night, Foreman tore his ACL and his meniscus. He has just started to walk with a brace and will likely not be back in the ring until 2011.
