The WBC will address the appeal of Julio Ceja
After the defeat suffered by Julio Ceja against Guillermo Rigondeaux last weekend, Ceja approached the President of the WBC, Mauricio Sulaiman to appeal the decision of the Referee.
Ceja was knocked down with a left hook in the eighth round and although he got up before the 10 count, the Referee decided to stop the fight.
Julio is requesting a revision of the fight. It should be noted that the winner of that bout is the official title challenger.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman says that Rigondeaux is the official challenger, but that the request of Ceja will be addressed.
However, he did point out that the chief goal of the World Boxing Council is to always safeguard the integrity and well being of boxers, in order to avoid any tragedy.
