Burns-Vazquez Winner Will Have To Wait on Broner

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that the International Boxing Federation [IBF] has approved the lightweight unification between their champion Miguel Vazquez (33-3, 13KOs), and the WBO's champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10KOs). The fight is scheduled for March 16th at Wembley Arena in London.

While the fight was officially announced on Monday, the IBF had yet to give their final approval.

Both Burns and Vazquez have already discussed their strategy of winning and then pursuing a three belt unification against WBC champion Adrien Broner. That plan will have to be put on hold, at least for a little while - unless some arraignment can be worked out.

The IBF and WBO reached an agreement which directs the winner of the March unification to make an immediate defense against the WBO's mandatory challenger, and then follow that up with a defense against the IBF's mandatory challenger. The winner might be able to bypass the second mandatory, but it's unlikely they will be able  to bypass both. The WBO's mandatory is Jose Gonalez of Puerto Rico. His promoter, Puerto Rico Best Boxing, is already pressing for their boxer to face the March winner. If the Burns-Vazquez winner is able to secure a date with Broner, then a step-side fee for Gonzalez can always be worked out if necessary.

The two sanctioning organizations will work together to select the officials of the March unification.

Im sure Gonzalez or whatever will step aside instead of stepping up and getting taught a lesson in stick and move by Vasquez.

[QUOTE=ROSS CALIFORNIA]I see what you're saying, but I see the English as being different than Americans. They boo the rival fighter quite a bit more. I think they will get behind Burns. Just imagine Broner fighting Burns in his home country. They'd boo him out of the ring. lol But imagine that f...

[QUOTE=diarraisagod]Sure Burns will be the more popular of the two, but as I said it's not like its in Glasgow where the atmosphere would be hostile to Vasquez, Burns will be supported decently but its certainly not his hometown, there actually tends to be a pretty heated rivalry between the Scot...

This is just ridiculous.
