I think he will find it hard to get good fights in the US. His only fight there was against Berto, where he was brought over as what was expected to be an easy title victory for Berto. The fact that he gave Berto a tough fight and may have won without the cut gives him even less chance of being brought back to the States. Plus he is 36 now, and has no title. The only way I can see him getting big fights in the States is if he has a belt. He's highly ranked by the IBF and WBO, so hopefully he can secure a mandatory position.
