WBC To Rule on Dirrell, Benavidez, Yildirim - 168 Layout

By World Boxing Council

On February 23, 2019, Anthony Dirrell fought Avni Yildirim for the then vacant WBC Super Middleweight World Championship.

That highly entertaining and competitive match resulted in a split technical decision. Unfortunately, the fight ended via a stoppage during the actions of the 10th round, due to the severity of a cut Dirrell sustained as a result of an accidental head butt.

Avni Yildirim officially appealed to the WBC the fight's outcome and requested a direct rematch. In connection with Yildirim's appeal, the WBC requested both parties’ position in writing. The WBC has now received both parties' position in writing.

benavidez-dirrell-yildirim

One of the stipulations of the Dirrell vs. Yildirim fight was that that the winner of that fight would be obligated to fight David Benavidez next. Benavidez is fighting tomorrow on a 10-round bout.

Recently, WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman met David Benavidez and his team in Dallas. Benavidez has complied with all the terms and conditions of the WBC Ruling regarding his adverse finding of last year in connection with his participation in the WBC Clean Boxing Program.

David Benavidez has also submitted to the WBC his position in writing regarding his rights in the division.

On Monday, March 18, after Benavidez´s fight, the WBC will begin the WBC Board of Governors' voting process. That process will result in a WBC Ruling sorting out the division's status, and which the WBC will publish soon after the voting process is concluded.

The WBC title situation @ 168Lb appears to be in 100% total confusion. It's not that long ago that they made an announcement that the champion had to fight the so called (Diamond champion) Callum Smith "next". What the bloody…

It doesn't matter how big the population is in Turkey if they are not a boxing nation which they are not. That explains why they have not had a world champion boxer in any division.
