Don Knig and Stiverne seem to have intentionally avoided imposing their mandatory status in hopes of Vitali retiring and receiving a shot at the vacant title. Disappointing, but I understand... Stiverne would get brutalized against Vitali, he's tailor made for Vitali and Ray Austin's poor impression of Vitali made that clear.
Hopefully anyone but a Don King fighter wins the title so the posssibility of an undisputed, unification fight is there and there's no John Ruiz situation.
