My dear champions:

Once the political conditions have cleared in the Philippines , the WBC is ruling the holding of the mandatory defense bout between the WBC world champion of the superfeatherweight Juan Manuel Marquez vs. his official challenger and WBC International champion Manny Pacquiao.

The WBC is giving 30 days of free negotiations for both fighters to sign for a promotion, with the clarification that if there is no agreement among the parties, a purse offer ceremony will be held at noon of June 18 th , 2007, in the Executive Offices of the WBC in Mexico City .

Please accept my very best personal regards,

this should happen a long time ago..
pac has been the number 1 contender in years.. and a mandatory fight shoukd be given to him..
jose suliman doing something for the good of the sport. :eek:
This is the fight that has to happen. Valero/Guzman there all irrelevant.. GET ME PAC V JMM!
Perfect timing. I can't wait to see the odds on this one.
I like Pac, but i think im going to take JMM for this fight.
its a toss up right now, it will all depend on how hard pac trains. If his mind is on boxing and not politics, i would easily bet on pac, if he's tied between alot of things while training, ill go with jmm.
I'm going Marquez 100%. I'll bet every point I have on it if I like the details/specifics and after I find out who the three judges are.
i might just take you up on that offer shane.
