Denver Cuello is Likely To Get a Rematch With Zhong

by Ronnie Nathanielsz
 
WBC minimumweight Silver champion Denver Cuello is likely to get a rematch with champion Xiong Zhao Zhong to whom he lost in a controversy-marred majority decision in a title fight At the World Trade Center in Dubai last June 28..
 
In response to a complaint submitted by Cuello’s manager Aljoe Jaro through his lawyer Atty. Richard Flores about the non-compliance with the anti-doping rules that are mandatory in all WBC title fights, WBC president Don Jose Sulaiman  assumed the blame “for not considering the special circumstances of a fight in a place where there was no knowledge whatsoever of what professional boxing is.”
 
In reacting to the request for a rematch between Cuello and Zhong, Sulaiman said “please be assured that the Board of Governors will vote favorably on my recommendation for a rematch as soon as Denver is medically approved to return to boxing.”
 
Sulaiman said “we do not have a majority voting yet, but all those received as of today have been in favor” of a rematch.
 
Cuello is scheduled to undergo surgery for a torn rotator cuff muscle in his right shoulder at the Makati Medical Center on July 15 after being asked to take a rest for 7 to 10 days by top-notch orthopedic surgeon Dr. Beng Javier.

Good for Cuello, he beats Zhong easily w/o injuries. This fight should be put on the next card in Macao.
