An excited Nakathila had this to say’ “I knew this was not going to be an easy fight. Pambeni is a great champion but he just faced a much better man tonight. For now, my eyes are set on the world title. I want to fight Herring, and I will fight him anytime any day and anywhere. I know he has a voluntary defence before he
faces his next mandatory. Come on Herring come and fight a real champion in the division to prove your worth”

Nestor Tobias who promotes Nakathila had this to say, “What a great fight. Nakathila is a world champion in the making and the WBO cannot ignore him anymore. When Ito was the champion Nakathila was the next ranked fighter and suddenly Roach Jr came out of nowhere and took his spot. Now is his time and the right thing to do will be to give Nakathila what he deserves, this is to fight Herring for the world title. We are hoping for the best because he fought fellow world rated boxers in the division and now defeated another champion, what else should he do?”

What the hell is the WBO Global belt? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. These sanctioning bodies are trying to one up each other to see who can come up with the dumbest belt.
