WBO vacates Baysangurov’s jr middleweight title; Andrade-TBA for vacant belt

The WBO has stripped the junior middleweight title from injured champion Zaurbek Baysangurov and declared the title vacant after Baysangurov was unable to make his mandatory defense against Demetrius Andrade due to back problems. Andrade will now fight for the vacant title against a contender to be named with date/venue to be named. Baysangurov will be made the #1 contender and will be approved to challenge the winner of Andrade-TBA within 180 days. Andrade could end up facing Vanes Martirosyan for the title on the November 23 card in Macau headlined by Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios.
