WBO orders Campbell-Casamayor!
WBO interim champion Joel Casamayor's March 22 bout against Michael Katsidis was sanctioned for the interim title with the condition that the winner must fight a mandatory defense with WBO/WBA/IBF lightweight champion Nate Campbell on or before July 6. On March 28, the WBO World Championship Committee requested that Casamayor confirm to the WBO his intention to fulfill his mandatory cbligation with Campbell. Shortly thereafter, his representatives confirmed Casamayor's intention to fulfill his obligations and his request to start negotiations immediately. The Casamayor and Campbell camps have been given 15 days to negotiate an agreement and either may request a purse bid at any time. If an accord is not reached within the time frame, a purse bid will be ordered in the following ten days.
