Vanes vs Angulo WBC Purse Bid is Set For Sept. 23

The World Boxing Council has confirmed the final elimination bout to determine the mandatory contender in the super welterweight division – No. 1 ranked Vanes Martirosyan vs. No. 2 ranked Alfredo Angulo - and a date has been set for Friday, September 23, to hold a purse offer in case no agreement is reached between the promoters during the free negotiations period.

The winner of Martirosyan-Angulo will be the mandatory challenger, which will create tremendous enthusiasm in the boxing world.

 WBC super welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will defend the title in a voluntary fight against Alfonso Gomez at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on September 17 as part of the historic event, “Star Power,” which will feature three WBC world championship fights showcased on HBO pay-per-view. In the main event, Floyd Mayweather will challenge WBC welterweight world champion Victor Ortiz, and Erik Morales will battle Lucas Mathysse for the WBC super lightweight world championship.
