BARRERA NEXT IN LINE FOR BRODIE?

14.10.03 – Following their annual convention in Moscow last week the WBC today issued their new ratings which confirms MARCO ANTONIO BARRERA as the new No. 3 in the featherweight division. BRODIE (WBC No. 2) challenges Injin Chi of Korea (WBC No. 1) this Saturday at the MEN Arena in Manchester for the vacant WBC Featherweight Championship of the World. Promoter Barry Hearn said ‘this decision by the WBC has given even more significance to this great contest. With Barrera having beaten PRINCE NASEEM HAMED so convincingly, the opportunity now for MICHAEL BRODIE is tremendous. He knows a victory over Chi on Saturday night would change his life, and the chance of a showdown with Barrera would be his promoter’s dream!”
