Cuello-Juarez WBC Eliminator Heads To a Purse Bid

by Ronnie Nathanielsz
World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman has said that since the handlers of No. 1 ranked minimum weight contender Denver Cuello and No. 2 ranked Saul “Baby” Juarez have been unable to come to terms for a scheduled final title eliminator, the WBC has sent a letter to both Aljoe Jaro, the promoter of Cuello and  Oswaldo Kuchle who handles Juarez, setting a “purse offer” that the WBC will conduct on September 25 at the WBC offices in Mexico City.
The winner will get a title shot at Thai world champion Wanheng Menayothin.
The conditions to participate in the purse offer are the following:
1.              To have paid the   Annual Registration Fee for Promoters   that is $5,000 dollars.
2.              To be in good standing with the World Boxing Council.
3.              To pay the corresponding fee to take part in the previously mentioned purse offer that is $2,500 dollars.  
Originally, Aljoe Jaro offered Kuchle $8,000 plus three roundtrip airline tickets to fight in Manila but Kuchle turned it down and instead offered Aljoe Jaro a purse of $5,000 for Cuello to fight Juarez in Mexico which the Filipino promoter turned down because at the time of the offer from Kuchle, Cuello was No.1 and Juarez was not even in the top ten.
However, a latest check with the WBC ratings shows that Juarez had zoomed to No.2 after back to back wins over Adrian Hernandez.
Juarez who lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Milan Melindo in an IBF light flyweight eliminator on November 15, 2014 won by an 8th round TKO over Hernandez when Hernandez suffered a nasty cut and the ringside physician directed the referee to stop the fight last May 30.
In a rematch on August 8, Juarez won a ten round split decision over Hernandez which presumably was used to justify his surge to the No. 2 ranking.
The 28 year old Cuello who lost by a majority decision to China’s world champion Zhao Xong Xiong in Dubai on June 28, 2013 dislocated his shoulder after one round and gallantly batted to the end effectively with one arm.
He underwent surgery at the Makati Medical Center on his return and resumed fighting one year later, winning three bouts in a row, all by stoppages.

WBC is biased towards Mexican, when they can just order the belt for a fight between the Thai and the Filipino when handlers of Juarez failed the purse bid. :wave:
