Former two-time world title challenger Alfonso Gomez has responded favorably to a rematch with former Contender foe Ahmed Kaddour.

In a recent interview with WBN, Denmark-based Kaddour, who’s only two career defeats came against Gomez and Ishe Smith in the first series on the popular show, stated: “I would love to fight either one of them.

“We both should get paid well for a fight like that. I am definitely willing to come to Vegas then we can make a deal. Sign the contract for the fight.”

After Smith turned down Kaddour’s initial advances, Gomez is ready to step up and take the fight. It would certainly generate interest with fans of the show who witnessed a sizzling rivalry between the two fighters.

“Any fight is possible if the reasons are right and I’d beat him worse this time,” Gomez exclusively told World Boxing News on giving Kaddour a chance to avenge his loss.

Fighters from the original line-up include former world champions Sergio Mora and Peter Manfredo. Whilst Jesse Brinkley and Miguel Espino also fought for world titles when they lost out to Lucian Bute and Kelly Pavlik.

The first series was picked up around the world. Fighters became instant household names as ‘The Latin Snake’ Mora took home the title belt with a victory over Manfredo in the final at Caesars Palace. A split decision repeat win followed in the rematch.
