During the last few hours it was announced by the camp of Ricky Burns that three-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez had left the division and moved to welterweight, therefore Burns is now WBO lightweight world champion. However, over the telephone on Thursday Marquez said he has been talking to WBO President Francisco Valcarcel and been assured that the WBO lightweight “super” world championship title remains with him. Mexican and international media published the recognition that made Burns regular WBO lightweight champion and Marquez was informed immediately and began the search for the correct information. He is also hoping to be reinstated as WBA lightweight “super” champion after that title was stripped earlier this month.
