WBC to vacate Pacman’s belt

The WBC is in the process of declaring vacant the super welterweight championship, which is currently held by Manny Pacquiao, if the voting of the WBC Board of Governors returns a 2/3 vote in favor. Pacquiao has expressed that he does not want to defend the title and prefers not to fight in that weight division in the future. Rule 1.24 b) gives double-division champions 15 days to decide which title they want to relinquish. The WBC, as a courtesy, waited 87 days after Pacquiao’s fight against Antonio Margarito. The WBC, after knowing the result of the voting, will present a program to fill the vacancy.
