Trainer Eddie Mustafa Muhammad is confident that his undefeated super middleweight Badou Jack (15-0, 10KOs) is ready for the next step - a world title shot. He wants Jack to get a shot the WBC champion, Sakio Bika (32-5-2, 21KOs). Jack fought last month and won an easy ten round unanimous decision over Farah Ennis. Bika captured the vacant title in June with a majority decision over Marco Antonio Periban. There was some discussion about Jack facing Periban on the Floyd Mayweather-Saul Alavarez undercard on September 14th. Muhammad sees no reason for Jack to fight Periban.

"Why would we do that? That's taking a step backwards. Why would we agree to that? Periban just lost. That's the guy who lost. We want the guy who won. Give us the guy who, the world champion. Badou is ready. He can beat Sakio Bika," Muhammad told BoxingScene.com.

Dont like that move tbh. Sure jack would box bikas ears off, probably knock him out and leave with a world title. But in the long run its not a good move. First of all he hasnt earned a title shot, lets jyst put that out there first. But what will happen once he wins it? He might be ready f...

Bika is very very strong and powerful. If Jack can find the right distance and outbox him like Ward did then he can get away with that W, but if he loses focus then its big trouble. This is a good test for Jack to see if he really belongs or not.
