Omar Figueroa Has Been Placed as Champion in Recess


omar-figueroa-workoutThe WBC Board of Governors has voted unanimously to support Omar Figueroa while he is recovering from an injury sustained in his mandatory title defense of August 16 vs. Daniel Estrada. After the fight, his cut was infected and had to receive additional treatment. He has been placed as Champion in Recess, which will allow him to take the necessary time to heal and to begin training without any time pressure.

The WBC has ordered the two highest available contenders to fight for the WBC lightweight championship, with the condition that the winner must fight Figueroa whenever he is ready to return to the ring.

Jorge Linares vs. Javier Prieto has been ordered and is expected to be promoted within 2014.
