WBC Prez Applauds Luis Nery For Withdrawing From Return

By Miguel Rivera

Last week, former WBC bantamweight world champion Luis Nery (26-0, 20 KOs) canceled his return to the ring on June 9 - after being warned by the World Boxing Council.

The WBC had placed him on a temporary suspension for failing to make weight for his March rematch with Shinsuke Yamanaka. He lost his WBC world title on the scale.

He appeared at a hearing with the WBC and they reached an agreement on certain terms.

When Nery announced that he was fighting on June 9 in Mexico - the WBC was shocked, as the boxer had promised to sit on the shelf as part of the resolution that both sides reached at the hearing.

"At first, I felt very bad to see a fight announced through the media and then I saw that (Luis) made the right decision, because we had a conversation with him and his representatives, he understood his mistakes (in the fight against Shinsuke Yamanaka) and by not fighting and making a decision to abide by the suspension - that commits us to continue supporting his career," Sulaiman explained to ESPN Deportes.

Zanfer Promotions had announced that Nery was going to fight on June 9 against Jetro Pabustan, from the Philippines, as a headline fight in Tijuana.

Also, with last weekend's shocking upset of Julio Ceja in his stay busy fight with Venezuelan Franklin Manzanilla, the current WBC super bantamweight champion Rey Vargas must wait a little longer to have a mandatory challenger and precisely because of that, the green and gold sanctioning body will allow him to make one more voluntary defense.

Ceja was the mandatory challenger to Vargas and he only had to beat Manzanilla to once again compete for the WBC super bantamweight championship. However, Ceja lost and the sanctioning body hopes to order an eliminator between the two highest available challengers.
