Miranda vs St-Juste in Trouble Over Weight Compromise

by Richard Cloutier
 
According to the reports of journalist Vincent Morin of 24H, Colombia's Edison Miranda may not be able to comply with the required weight of 168 pounds to face Renan St-Juste on March 19 at the gala put together by InterBox at Montreal's Bell Centre. The public relations head of InterBox, David Messier, says that Miranda allegedly asked to adjust the combat weight to 175 lbs. St-Juste had recently made the jump from 160-pounds to super middleweight.

InterBox is currently considering various options including the possibility of opposing Renan St-Juste against Enrique Ornelas. The latter in particular faced Bernard Hopkins and Robert Stieglitz. Ornelas is the half brother Librado Andrade.
 
This would be the second major change to the card scheduled March 19. A few weeks ago, a technicalitée in the regulations of the IBF forced the withdrawal Toronto's Steve Molitor who was going to make a mandatory defense against South African Takalani Ndlovu.

This would be an awesome fight if it happens. Renan St Juste is a brawler in spurts and Miranda is a weak chinned tough guy. It should be a great fight with constant shifts in momentum. It'll be good while…
