WBO junior lightweight champion Joan Guzman (28-0, 17 KOs) fully intends to travel to Scotland to defend his title against interim champion Alex Arthur (26-1, 19 KOs). The fight, which is currently scheduled for May 3 in Edinburgh, Scotland, however, will likely be rescheduled because Guzman is having trouble securing a visa that will allow him to travel to Scotland. "Guzman is not giving up his belt," said Jose Nunez, Guzman's long time manager. "He's worked extremely hard and gone through tremendous sacrifices to become a world champion. He's simply not going to give up his belt. Guzman will go to Scotland and he will successfully defend his title. The date will most likely be pushed back a bit.....rest assured that team Guzman will have all the appropriate paperwork for this fight. We know what has to be done and we understand the time frame that is needed to accomplish this." Sean Gibbons, matchmaker for Guzman's promoter Sycuan Ringside Promotions stated "We are waiting for Frank Warren of Sports Network to give us the new, rescheduled date." Frank Warren won the rights to this championship fight in a WBO purse bid.
