Daniel Santos looking for opponent

WBA junior middleweight champ Daniel Santos (32-3-1 23KOs) was scheduled to make the first defense of his title against Nobuhiro Ishida on January 3 in Japan, but the fight was called off and the reason as to why Ishida is unable to move forward is unknown. Santos, obviously frustrated, has been unable to secure an opponent since he won the title by knocking out previously undefeated Joachim Alcine in July.

"We will continue to train because at any moment they can tell us about some fight and we want to maintain his conditioning. We are training some days in the gum and running on other days," Francisco Santos said. "We are already used to this. Nothing surprises us. We hope a good fight can be obtained and Daniel can defend the title."

Paul Williams should be on Santos' short list if Santos is willing to train for an extra month or so while PW's gash heals. Either way, it appears another opportunity at 154 for Paul Williams is opening.
