The president of the World Boxing Organization, Francisco Valcárcel, announced that the next challenger of the Super Featherweight champion of the boxing entity, Jamel Herring will have to face the winner of the tie to be held next June by American Shakur Stevenson and Namibian Jeremiah Nakathila.
Herring defeated the Irishman Carl Frampton with category this Saturday in Dubai, and incidentally led him to retirement, just as ‘The Jackal’ had promised in the previous fight. He knocked him down twice before forcing the European corner to throw in the towel when he saw the thrashing that the Olympian and Marine from the country of the Stars and Stripes was giving him.
“Outstanding performance of our US Marine Jamel Herring,” Valcárcel wrote via social media. “Congratulations to our 130-pound world champion. Now he must face the winner of the fight between Shakur Stevenson and Jeremiah Nakathila scheduled for the 12th. June, ”added the head of the Puerto Rico-based agency.
In the networks the rumor arose that Herring could now seek a unifying battle against the Mexican Oscar Valdez, champion of the World Boxing Council; However, Shakur himself was in charge of burying that possibility, as he told him that he intends to make that title battle with Herring take effect, in case of winning Nakathila, then try to push him for the unification against Valdez.
