WBO: No direct Martinez-Burgos rematch

After a thorough review, the WBO World Championship Committee has ruled that the decision in the WBO junior lightweight bout between WBO champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez and #1 contender and mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Burgos contested in Madison Square Garden in New York City on January 19 was not substantially irregular or a clear misapplication of the rules of boxing resulting in a manifest unfairness, and therefore will not recommend the WBO Executive Committee that there be a direct return fight.
