WBO: Merlito Sabillo Does Not Have To Have A Direct Rematch With Carlos Buitrago


    WBO President Francisco Valcarcel has stated that its 105 pound Filipino champion Merlito Sabillo may face another opponent within the next 9 months before a rematch with Carlos Buitrago of Nicaragua occurs.

    “In Mexico, Buitrago fought in an eliminatory and won the title of number one contender,” said Valcarcel. “He (Buitrago) is still the number one contender for 9 months until there is a new agreement. Within that time Sabillo can defend against any challenger.”
