The Bolton fighter is said to be in “tentative agreement” to defend his title against Argentine Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas.

The contest could be on the undercard of the Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones Jr fight at Mandalay Bay on 17 April, although a Manchester date is still not out of the question.
