GALIT si mandatory contender at WBO No. 1 Cesar Juarez ng Mexico sa pagkukunwari ni WBO super bantamweight champion Jessie Magdaleno na napinsala ang kamay kaya biglang umatras sa kanilang laban sa Nobyembre 11 sa Fresno, California sa United States..

Bagamat walang talo si Magdaleno sa 25 laban na may 18 pagwawagi sa knockouts, prinotektahan ang kanyang karera ni Top Rank big boss Bob Arum kaya nakakalaban kahit overweight.

Naging world champion si Magdaleno nang talunin sa kontrobersiyal na 12-round unanimous decision si five-division world titlist Nonito Donaire Jr. kahit nagtatakbo lang noong Nobyembre 5, 2016 sa Las Vegas, Nevada.

Anumang araw, ihahayag ng WBO na maglalaban sina Juarez at No. 2 contender Marlon Tapales ng Pilipinas para sa interim WBO super bantamweight title na posibleng itakda sa Nobyembre o Disyembre sa US o Mexico.

“From the moment I had my fight with Filipino Albert Pagara (Caesar knocked him out in July 2016), I received the number one ranking in the world inside the WBO. It is well known that Jessie Magdaleno stay away from facing me in a championship fight,” sabi ni Jaurez sa notifight.com

“It seems outrageous to me that at this point, and only a few weeks before the fight, that the champion has been injured, which is very dubious and as a result he avoids the fight that was also his mandatory – and he’s also dared to disobey the rules of the WBO.”

“Magdaleno is said to be world champion and he avoids strong boxers like me. My question is, does Jessie Magdaleno really deserve to have the world championship, when he’s been changing dates and now canceling the fight?” tanong ng Mexican boxer. “It seems to me that he has a lack of respect towards the World Boxing Organization, towards my work and that of my team, that for three months we have been working hard for this fight.”

Gayunman, handa si Juarez na may kartadang 25-5-0 na may 15 panalo sa knockouts na harapin si Tapales na dating WBO bantamweight champion at may rekord na 30-2-0 na may 13 pagwawagi sa knockouts.

“If he (Magdaleno) does not have the capacity, veracity and heart to defend and be a champion, then let him vacate, because I am so hungry to be world champion; as well as showing it by giving high-quality matches and proving why I am the number one in the WBO world,” dagdag ni Jaurez. “We do not exclude the possibility of competing for the interim world championship in November.”
