On August 14, they will meet in the United States John Riel Casimero, holder of the WBO bantamweight world title, and Guillermo Rigondeaux, in an event that has undergone many changes before his poster, hopefully, definitive.
The Cuban jackal holds the WBA “regular” title, having defeated Liborio Solís in his last fight. However, and despite the attempts of some sectors to promote the fight, the WBO has been in charge of emphasizing that this fight «It is not a unification in any case. The only WBA world champion we recognize at bantamweight is Naoya Inoue, and we will never unify with regular, interim or recess champions. “. The president himself, Paco Valcárcel, has made the position of the organization clear.
Great news for boxing that the estates themselves censor their namesakes who hand out world champion belts like hotcakes.
