Team Rabchenko Will Push For Full WBC Title Shot

HATTON PROMOTIONS would like to address rumours suggesting that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's March 8 clash with fellow Mexican Alfredo Angulo has been made for the vacant WBC light-middleweight title.

At the present time, undefeated Sergey Rabchenko is the WBC's number one ranked contender and holds the sanctioning body's prestigious Silver title.

Rabchenko's rating places him one position higher than former holder Saul Alvarez, while Angulo lost his last fight by stoppage and does not appear in the ratings at all.

Both Rabchenko's promoter, Ricky Hatton, and his manager, Philippe Fondu, are determined to stake Sergey's claim to a shot at the title and will be holding discussions with the WBC.

"I'm sure the WBC will respect Sergey's position and allow him to box for the title he deserves," said Hatton.

"Since winning the Silver belt, Sergey's been very proud of representing the WBC and I know he wants the opportunity to fight for the full world title more than anything.

"Hatton Promotions will do everything it can to make sure Sergey's position is honoured".

Rabchenko, who is also the European champion, will be taking part at the WBC's Champions Race in Mexico alongside stablemate and WBC Youth Silver titlist Damien Hooper on January 26.

Organised in association with Emoción Deportiva and Grupo Martí, the event features runs up to 12km and aims to encourage dedication in order to fight addiction, obesity and other physical problems.

[QUOTE=hougigo;14123439]Floyd hasn't even decided which belt to drop yet....and I bet WBC will try not to give it to him...at least delay it[/QUOTE] WBC will let Mayweather sit on his belts as long as he likes. They are corrupt scum.
