Edited Press Release: Colombian knockout artist Juan Urango is healed from an injury to his left hand, back in the gym, and ready to face Naoufel Ben Rabah. Editors Note: Rabah is rated #1 in the IBF but the IBF junior welterweight championship has not yet been vacated by Ricky Hatton. Hatton is likely to face Luis Collazo at welterweight next, but its not definite yet, and IBF rules permit a champion to apply for an exception. "My hand is 100 percent and I'm looking forward to knocking people out with it," said Urango, 16-0-1 with 13 KOs. "The first one on my hit list is Naoufel Ben Rabah, and I'm looking forward to becoming a world champion." If the IBF crown becomes vacant, the number one contender, Rabah, must face the leading available contender. With number three rated Junior Witter currently scheduled to face Demarcus Corley for the vacant WBC title, the leading available contender is the number four ranked Urango. Warriors Boxing Promotions is eager to make the fight as soon as possible. "We're ready, willing, and able to put on this championship bout between Juan Urango and Ben Rabah," said Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing Promotions. "I'm letting the IBF know that we are prepared to begin negotiations immediately, and we are looking forward to Juan Urango becoming the new junior welterweight Champion of the World." In Urango's last bout, on August 26, 2005, he stopped Andre Eason in seven rounds.
