World Boxing Council To Order Interim Heavyweight World Championship

The promoter of WBC heavyweight champion of the world, Oleg Maskaev of Russia, has indicated it believes that it should be awarded the promotional rights to his upcoming fight against mandatory challenger Samuel Peter of Nigeria, which would render bout contracts presented by Don King Productions invalid..

Given this position and in the context of current litigation, the President of the African Boxing Union, Houcine Houichi, has sent a recommendation for the WBC to not only continue in court to defend itself in the case presented by the champion's representative, but to also unfreeze the heavweight championship by immediately ordering an interim heavyweight world championship between Samuel Peter and the highest rated available contender in the WBC ratings, according to the WBC rules and regulations, while the court case by Maskaev's representative is being resolved
