The fight between Rocky Martinez and Beltran Jr. is for the vacant WBO junior lightweight championship on September 15 in the Pay Per View of Chavez Jr.-Martinez, Rivera said about the title that was vacated weeks ago when former champion Adrien Broner failed to make the weight for his fight against Vicente Escobedo.
