Corrales-Freitas II on tap for this fall!
Artie Pelullo, President of Banner Promotions, has informed Boxingtalk.com that Acelino Freitas, the crown jewel of his stable has exercised his right to a rematch against lightweight king Diego "Chico" Corrales. On August 7, 2004 Freitas quit against Corrales in the tenth round of an action packed bout. Prior to that bout, Team Corrales signed a contract that granted Freitas the right to a rematch for up to one year after the first fight. Corrales promoter Gary Shaw was unavailable for immediate comment, but Shaw recently confirmed to Boxingtalk.com that GSP has the October 1 Showtime date. Pelullo also informed Boxingtalk that Freitas plans to take a tune up in Brazil on July 16. Stay tuned to our front page for all the latest. REMEMBER WHERE YOU HEARD IT FIRST! (6:00 PM ET)
