WBC Delays Mayweather’s Mandatory Defenses To Give Way For Pacquiao


The World Boxing Council (WBC) has held off their decision about Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s obligation for mandatory defenses in two separate world titles as their way of pushing the title fight against Manny Pacquiao.

The WBC believed the two fighters will come into terms after finally Mayweather broke his silence about his desire to fight Pacquiao on May 2.

“The WBC has participated to allow and encourage in every way the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight to take place,” WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said today during the Mandatory Defenses deliberation meetings of the ongoing 52nd annual convention at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The WBC has not set any obstacles or conditions for the fight to take place. The WBC has approved to have a dual championship for the welterweight and super welterweight divisions – Floyd Mayweather is confirmed to hold both titles, and there is no mandatory in either division until we can finalize if he is fighting Pacquiao.”

The mandatory title fight in welterweight should take place until May 3 while in super welterweight will be on Sept. 14.

Those were the same dates when Mayweather defended his welterweight title to Argentine Marcos Maidana and when he dethroned Saul Alvarez of Mexico.

The WBC board of governors approved promoter Sampson Lewkowicz’s proposal of 8-man eliminator-style tournament in each division until the lone survivors determines as the mandatory challengers.

Here are the top 8 in welterweight division, in order from No. 1: Amir Khan (UK), Robert Guerrero (US), Antonin Decarie (Canada), Marcos Maidana (Argentina), Timothy Bradley (US), Shawn Porter (US), David Avanesyan (Russia), andIonut Dan Ion (Romania).

In super welterweight, they are: Saul Alvarez (Mexico), Vanes Martirosyan (Armenia), Jermell Charlo (US), Anthony Mundine (Australia), Sergey Rabchenko (Belarus), Austin Trout (US), Jonathan Gonzalez (P. Rico), and John Jackson (Virgin Islands).

Former champion Marvin Sonsona and his two fellow veterans of world title fights from the Philippines can get mandatory shots at World Boxing Council (WBC) championship fights provided they win their eliminator bouts.

The WBC Board of Governors made their decisions for 2015 fights of Sonsona, Denver Cuello, Jonathan Taconing and the top rated boxers in 14 other weight divisions to determine the next challengers.

The pairing of matches were made on the 3rd day, Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), of the 52nd WBC Annual Convention at the Mirage Hotel, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sonsona, second ranked, and No. 3 Jayson Velez of Puerto Rico are ordered to fight to determine one of two mandatory challengers of reigning WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez of Mexico.

The January 6 fight between No. 4 ranked Rocky Juarez of the U.S. and No. 5 ranked Robinson Castellanos of Mexico will determine Gonzalez’s other mandatory challenger.

While minimumweight world champion Wanheng Menayothin of Thailand is in a voluntary stage until November, a final eliminator was approved between No. 1 ranked WBC Silver champion Carlos Ortega of Panama and Cuello, a newly installed No. 2 contender.

In light flyweight, No. 1 ranked Pedro Guevara of Mexico will fight No. 3 Akira Yaegashi of Japan for the vacant title on December 30 in Tokyo.

A final eliminator to determine the mandatory challenger was approved between No. 5 ranked Taconing and either No. 2 ranked Ganigan Lopez or No. 4 ranked Adrian Hernandez both of Mexico.

The mandatory fight is the obligation of the champion in each division to put his title on the line per year against the top available contender.


Aside from Yaegashi, there are several WBC rated Asians in the mix in at least three separate weight divisions.

Top rated flyweight Nawaphon Sor Rungvisai of Thailand and No. 2 ranked Edgar Sosa of Mexico was approved as a final eliminator to determine the mandatory challenger for world champion Roman Gonzalez of Nicaragua.

In super flyweight No. 1 ranked Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand and No. 4 ranked Jose Salgado of Mexico battle for right to face world champion Carlos Cuadras of Mexico.

This is another push to make the WBC welterweight title fight between champion Floyd Mayweather Jr and challenger Manny Pacquiao happen.

The WBC has agreed to put Pacquiao its number two welterweight contender to Mayweather Jr at the closed of deliberation of ratings in the second day of the 52nd WBC Annual Convention at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With approval of the WBC Board of Governors under the leadership of WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, the Pacman was elevated behind top ranked and silver champion Amir Khan.Pacquiao and Mayweather 3

The moved is another hard push of the most prestigious boxing group in the world to easily sanction the long-overdue duel between this era’s superstars — Pacquiao as challenger to Mayweather’s WBC welterweight title.

The new ratings will officially release in the second week of January 2015.

In the same period last year, WBC had ranked the hard-hitting Filipino the No. 1 contender. But the two superstars went on their own ways thought the Filipino superstars had showed more interest to perform in a the fight that people wanted to see since 1999.

Khan has retained his spot in the current rankings because of his position as the division’s interim champion.

But Mayweather has made clear that he’s not after Khan.

“Once again, Amir Khan his name holds now weight. No one knows who’s Amir Khan is,” Mayweather in an interview at the ongoing Convention. “My focus is Manny Pacquiao, let’s make it happen.”

Mayweather wants Pacquiao on May 2nd.

Pacquiao, who celebrated his 36th birthday yesterday, Dec. 17, is a year junior to Mayweather.
