Rico Mueller Unable To Get IBO Title Crack on 9/13

By Per Ake Persson

German welterweight Rico Mueller (16-1-1) will not be able to fight for the vacant IBO title on September 13 in Bernau and the reason is that the IBO insists that Mueller must fight somebody from the Top 50 in the IBO ratings.

RM Promotion´s matchmaker Mario Pokowietz first secured the services of Polish veteran Rafal Jackiewicz, who is # 49 in the ratings but Rafal pulled out of the fight a few weeks ago to embark on a career in MMA. Then a number of names have been contacted but have said 'no' while others have not been approved by the IBO. All in all RM Promotion have been forced to cancel the world title fight but the show is on with Mueller to headline and word is that it will be against a good opponent..
 
Those who follow the ratings might of course wonder how Mueller, #129, can be approved to fight for the IBO world title and the answer is that he is the reigning IBO I/C champ, which makes him eligible to fight for the organization´s world title.

OMG...the the #129 ranked guy can't fight for the title because he can't find somebody ranked 50th or higher? Hell out of here
