Antwun Echols is being considered as Joe Calzaghe's next opponent. Calzaghe is scheduled to defend his WBO super middleweight title on February 11.

Echols (31-5-1 27 KOs) is best known for giving middleweight kingpin, Bernard Hopkins a rough ride in a losing effort and – more recently – for losing a unanimous decision to Australia's Anthony Mundine in a WBA Super Middleweight title fight.

The card on February 11, at Manchester's MEN Arena, will also feature British amateur boxing sensation, Amir Khan. It is the first in a series of pro-am boxing events scheduled for 2005.
