WBC featherweight world champion Jhonny Gonzalez could make the first defense of his crown on May 24 in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico against an opponent to be confirmed. Gonzalez had agreed to a rematch with former champ Abner Mares in early 2014, however for various reasons the fight was cancelled. Mares has recently been rumored to be seeking a shot at WBC super featherweight champion Takashi Miura. Unofficially, possible challengers include WBC #6 Viorel Simion of Romania and WBC #12 Clive Atwell of Guyana.
