Jaro Says Denver Cuello Will Have No Issues With Weight

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

The manager and trainer of WBC minimumweight Silver champion and mandatory challenger Denver Cuello says there is no need to worry  about Cuello making the weight in time for Thursday’s  official weigh-in scheduled for 4:00 p.m. in Dubai.

Aljoe Jaro told the Manila Standard in an overseas telephone conversation at 8:30 p.m. Manila Time that while Cuello is 2 pounds over the limit he actually ate after doing roadwork this morning.

He said “there’s no problem, we have plenty of time.”

The manager/trainer said Cuello was spending time relaxing on the internet after a courtesy call on Philippine consul general Frank Cimafranca in Dubai earlier today.

He said while Cuello is confident, he told him to size up the champion Xiong Zhao Zhong of China and not go after him recklessly and try to knock him out  right away.

Although the three judges assigned by the WBC are comparatively unknown, Aljoe Jaro told us he believes they are neutral and he’s not worried. He also said the referee Hector Aful of Panama is known to him because he was the referee in one of  Sonny Boy Jaro’s fights.

The judges are Roman Denison of Panama, John King of Britain and Sergio Izonso of Italy.
