Fernando Montiel Asks WBC For Nishioka Title Shot

By Miguel Rivea

Former WBC bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel (44-3-2, 34KOs) has asked WBC President Jose Sulaiman to grant him a shot at the organization's super bantamweight champ Toshiaki Nishioka (38-42, 24KOs). Montiel returns on June 25 in Mexico, as a super bantamweight, after getting stopped in two rounds by Nonito Donaire back in February. Nishioka has no problem going on the road. He came to Mexico in 2009, getting off the floor in round one to stop Jhonny Gonzalez in the third. Montiel would like to face him before the end of the year.
