WBC's Sulaiman: Danny Garcia Has To Give Up One Title

By Miguel Rivera

Recently, World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman has rejected the idea of a WBC champion holding a championship belt from a rival sanctioning organization.

Because of his position, Sulaiman was pressed to provide an answer on why he denies certain beltholders the ability to defend numerous titles, but allows WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia to simultaneously hold the WBA's super title.

"The World Boxing Council does not accept unifications. When these situations come up, the WBC accepts the fight, but the winner must decide which title he plans to keep. If he decides to stay with the other organization, then we'll vacate our title and crown a new champion," Sulaiman said.

"In Danny Garcia's case, I did not want to fight with a champion who I admire a lot, but we were surprised by this decision to stay with the two belts. I gave him 15 days to drop the WBA title and he never did it. We did not want to act at that time. But for his next fight Danny Garcia has to make a decision."

Garcia will defend his titles against Zab Judah on April 27th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Well there goes my prediction that Garcia would unify all the titles.
