Valero welcome in the WBA

By Gabriel F. Cordero & Jhonny Gonzalez

The possibility exists that WBA executive vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza and WBC lightweight world champion Edwin Valero could try to patch up their differences. Sources near to both parties have indicated there is hope that they will resolve their differences and begin a new history. “I want to meet with Valero. I believe that we should speak about our differences,” said Mendoza Jr., who guided his Venezuelan compatriot to his first world title before a their relationship broke down. “It was truly a friendship. He’s now a stellar WBC champion, but the WBA doors are open. If it Valero believes his future is in the WBA, he will be welcome.”
