WBO explain Bradley-Vargas, Floyd interim/full title status

Two-time world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” BRADLEY JR and undefeated world super lightweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA) JESSIE VARGAS be making their debut in 2015 when he fights a duel 12-round welterweight fight on Saturday June 27 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Editor’s Note: The WBO have stated that due to unforeseen circumstances involving Floyd Mayweather’s right to hold the WBO welterweight title that he won from Manny Pacquiao, Bradley and Vegas will fight for the interim title. Once Mayweather vacates the belt, the winner of Bradley v Vargas will be elevated to full champion.

Part of the stipulations required by the WBO is that Floyd gives up his super welterweight championships.

“Mayweather has until July 3rd to comply with terms and conditions of the June 5th Resolution (including vacating WBA and WBC 154lbs belts). Failure to do so will result in the WBO considering the winner of Bradley-Vargas as the full WBO Welterweight Champion of the World,” WBO General Secretary Jose Izquierdo told World Boxing News.

These two fighters have a combined record of 01.01.57 (21 KOs) – an average of 97% victories. The two-time Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez who is unbeaten as a professional who will face his countryman Ruben Tamayo, will open the HBO telecast agreed in their first fight 10 rounds.
