Montiel-Morel update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Word is that WBO interim bantamweight champion Eric Morel has signed the contract to face WBO/WBC bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel on July 17 in Chiapas, Mexico. Montiel’s signature is still needed. Top Rank won a WBO purse bid for the fight with a bid of $100,500, with Montiel due to earn some $80K to Morel’s $20K, although the pot may be sweetened somewhat. It is hoped that Montiel’s belt will also be on the line as last week WBC President Jose Sulaiman was highly critical of the bout.
