Juarez Adviser Explains Why He Doubts Magdaleno Injury Claim

By Steve Kim

WBO super bantamweight titlist Jessie Magdaleno was scheduled to face his mandatory contender, Cesar Juarez, on November 11th in Fresno, California, as part of a televised tripleheader that is being broadcast on ESPN. That was until Magdaleno backed out, claiming an injury a week ago.

Juarez's representative spoke to BoxingScene.com, and explained that he was very suspicious to say the least over the injury claim.

"I'm very disappointed in Jessie Magdaleno because my fighter, Cesar Juarez, put everything: his heart, his soul, everything in preparing for this fight and I was hearing rumors leading into this that Magdaleno was having issues with his weight," said Sean Gibbons, who advised Juarez.

Gibbons did some digging and said that he discovered more as to why the defending champion pulled out of this assignment.

"Then I came to find out that he has a wedding scheduled on November 11th," stated Gibbons.

"So that just makes me a little leery about him ever showing up. He's showing a total disregard for the WBO, for the WBO belt, for Cesar Juarez. It's an embarrassment, the guy should not be a champion when you act like this and you have one guy who gets prepared to fight and you just completely ruin the event."

As for what recourse Juarez has, Gibbons explained to BoxingScene - "With the WBO we've asked them to possibly to create a fight for an interim belt against the highest ranked available contender. That's what we're in the process of doing and we'll get an answer on that very soon."

BoxingScene reported a few days ago, that there is a chance of Juarez taking on tough Filipino Marlon Tapales for the WBO interim-title, which in turn would bind Magdaleno to face the winner or risk the possibility of being stripped.

I feel for team Juarez but how about digging further? Magdaleno claims to have sustained an injury, skuttles the fight, and no reporter is willing to confirm this with the appropriate physician?
