About Francisco Javier Castillejo & his title - the WBC has decided...



Super Welterweight Title

The World Boxing Council has decided to withdraw recognition to the super welterweight champion

Francisco Javier Castillejo with more than 2/3 of the votes of the Board of Governors.


Castillejo did not comply with his obligation to fight his mandatory challenger Ricardo Mayorga and signed

a contract to fight another boxer, violating the WBC commitment that he, as champion had to comply with.


The WBC, according to its Rules and Regulations will order the 2 highest available contenders to fight for the

vacant championship, a matter that will be discussed within the next few days.
