WBC sanctions Pacman-Margarito

The World Boxing Council received a request from Top Rank Inc. to approve the bout between Manny Pacquiao and Mexican fighter, Antonio Margarito, for the WBC Superwelterweight world title, to be held at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium this coming November 13th. The voting in favor of the fight was unanimous by the Board of Governors. The title was vacated when former world champion, Sergio Martinez, decided to do so, after winning the WBC Middleweight world title when he defeated Kelly Pavlik last April 17th. Pacquiao-Margarito will take place exactly one week after the 48th WBC Annual World Convention to be held in Cancun is closed.
