The president of the World Boxing Council, Mauricio Sulaiman, was linked by telephone during the WBC's Tuesday gathering with the official challenger to the super featherweight title, Miguel Roman.
This past Saturday night, Roman blasted out undefeated Venezuelan Michel Marcano in two rounds - which secures the mandatory crack at WBC super featherweight champion Miguel Berchelt.
"I want to congratulate you because you are one step away from going for the world title, you got a very important victory and now there is nothing left but to rest for a few days and prepare, because the preparation is the same although the fights have been short," Sulaiman said to Roman.
Roman secured the mandatory shot last December when he pulled off a major upset in knocking out former world champion Orlando "Siri" Salido.
Now Roman and his handlers are hoping to reach an agreement to fight Berchelt without the necessity of a purse bid.
Berchelt has promised to punish Roman and give him a war - which is something Roman embraces.
"I am happy for the win on Saturday, it is the result of the work that I did. I know (Berchelt) is a strong fighter, but nothing is impossible. I have nothing to say, I have never said anything bad [about Berchelt], and I always demanded and defended the opportunity [to fight him] because nobody gave me anything and I know I deserve it," Roman said.
"People want to see that fight, and it's good that he won on Saturday, it's good that he has confidence but I'm a Mexican I play everything for everything and I'm used to looking for a fight. He is not perfect like everyone else, because they have technical errors that I can take advantage of. I'll be ready for when my promoters tell me. I'm going to prepare in California with my coaches and although I do not know anything about dates, it motivates me to fight for the green and gold belt."
