By Jhonny Gonzalez

Puerto Rico's Jose Gonzalez (21-0, 16KOs) will be placed in the number one ranked position by the World Boxing Organization.

Gonzalez captured the WBO Latino lightweight title in June 2011 and retained the title four times.

The WBO's full lightweight champion, Ricky Burns (35-2, 10KOs), defends the title against Liam Walsh (13-0, 10KOs) on December 15th in London.

While the WBO has yet to issue a mandatory order, the organization is likely going to issue such an order after the conclusion of Burns-Walsh.

[QUOTE=D-MiZe]This fight against Walsh is a farce. Walsh is a super-featherweight who's fought once in 13 months and looked terrible. He was due to fight on November 30th to keep him active and ends up fighting December against Burns. Don't give me the 'stay busy' bullshit. If he wants a meani...

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]It was implied. The Gonzalez fight is another easy fight for Burns, so whats the difference? The Walsh fight is a stay busy fight and nothing more.

[QUOTE=D-MiZe]Did I say beating Gonzalez does anything for Burns? It's a better fight than Walsh, tenfold. If he's going to defend his title in December against someone who doesn't pose that much threat then it should've been Gonzalez and not a super-featherweight. ' Proving his worth ' par...

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]Beating Gonzalez proves Burns's worth? Gonzalez hasn't beat anyone of note. Its pretty much the same kind of fight against Walsh, neither one of them has the experience to have a chance against Burns. It sounds like Burns wants the DeMarco Broner winner next.[/QUOTE] Did I ...

[QUOTE=D-MiZe]If there is a God, Walsh shall be struck with an affliction which does not allow him to fight in December and is replaced by Jose Gonzalez. Time for Burns to prove his worth. :boxing:[/QUOTE] Beating Gonzalez proves Burns's worth? Gonzalez hasn't beat anyone of note. Its pr...
