In August we saw Daud Yordan (38-3-0-1, 26) take part in a press conference to state that he and his team were pursuing a bout against Venezuelan Jorge Linares (44-4, 27) for the WBA "regular" Lightweight title.
That hope for Yordan to secure that bout has now ended, with the Venezuelan fighter moving up in weight to face Abner Cotto (23-3, 12).
Due to Linares's decision to move up Yordan's team are now looking elsewhere for an opponent, though they seem like they still have their eyes on a November bout for the WBA "regular" title.
Over the last few weeks Yordan, who is currently ranked #2 by the WBA only behind Linares, had taken part in a special training camp in Spain though is now in Indonesia, where he's continuing to work hard whilst awaiting for his team to finalise his next bout.
At the moment there is no opponent being publicly named by Yordan or his team, though it's expected that he could end up facing either the WBA #3 ranked Evens Pierre (30-1, 20), from Haiti, or WBA #4 ranked Anthony Crolla (33-6-3, 13).
