The rematch between Humberto Soto and Urbano Antillon was supposed to headline the May 7th pay-per-view undercard featuring Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley. Well, multiple sources have told me that Soto, citing unhappines with Zanfir Promotions and Top Rank, has not only dropped out of that assignment, but he believes that his contract has expired.

Soto has retained the services of attorney Mike Miller, who has played a role in Nonito Donaire leaving Top Rank for Golden Boy.

It wouldn't be stunning to see this scenario play out, again.

No word on what Top Rank will replace that fight with on that May 7th show (it's difficult to replace Fight of the Year candidates on less than three weeks notice).

As for Antillon, all indications are that he will now face WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios on the July 9th Showtime telecast .
