Chavez Jr. vs. Rubio II Ordered For WBC Interim Belt

he WBC has ruled that Marco Antonio Rubio, fights Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for the Interim Middleweight Title. They're respectively one and two in the rankings. The WBC will wait until both fighters complete the bouts they've already signed up for. Free negotiations will start the Monday after their bouts. In case one of them loses, the WBC will name another challenger.

WBC champion Sergio Martinez who's recovering from surgery, last week visited Mexico. He's been notified about this decision, which he accepts. The WBC Board of Governors has unanimously voted he remain champion.

WBC’s #3, Italian Domenico Espada, will face #4 Mexican Gilberto Ramirez in a final elimination to become the mandatory challenger of the interim champion.

Chavez won a twelve round unanimous decision to Rubio last February. And Rubio is heading to a fight with Patrick Majewski on July 27th, likely in Mexico.

it's as In posted several weeks past...no way an interim title is disputed w/out jr in the mix...

Comment by M4RK on 07-12-2013

The fact that the wbc doesnt allow boxers to hold multiple belts was the ,ost detrimental business decisions of all time. Just look at this piece of **** rankings list for mw when there are fighters like ggg, quillin, geale,…
