Lightweight title update!

Unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell’s inability to make weight has led to three titles becoming vacant. As previously reported, Golden Boy has expressed interest in having the WBO sanction the February 28 fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz. Also in the mix for that belt is the March 14 clash between Amir Khan and Marco Antonio Barreral. Promoter Frank Warren told the Sun, “Khan vs. Barrera might well become a title fight. I hope the WBO will sanction it.”
