Will Ajose Olusegun get snubbed again?

On July 14, Amir Khan will face Danny ‘Swift’ Garcia of Philadelphia for the WBC light welterweight title in Las Vegas. Garcia replaced Lamont Peterson who tested positive for synthetic testosterone that he and his team claim he was prescribed before Khan and Peterson fought in December, 2011. The winner of the Khan-Garcia fight will possibly face Lucas Matthyse in Los Angeles, who knocked out Humberto Soto at the end of round 5 in Los Angeles this past Saturday in stunning fashion.

While fans salivate at the possibility of a match between Khan and Matthyse, #1 ranked Ajose Olusegun continues to wait for a title fight he has been the mandatory challenger for years now. Olusegun and his manager have been sitting on their hands since Erik Morales was given the WBC strap for his victory over Mexico’s Pablo Cesar Cano in September of 2011, on the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz undercard.

While Olusegun and his promoter had little choice but to step aside for the Amir Khan-Danny Garcia fight for the vacant WBC title, it is unclear whether or not the WBC will grant The Nigerian native the championship match he’s been waiting for for far too long. Olusegun has been inactive for ten months now since his very exciting victory over hard punching Canadian Ali Chebah and at age 32, Ajose ‘Smokin’ Joe” Olusegun cannot afford to wait much longer. The WBC must acknowledge Olusegun before the end of 2012 or face further scrutiny from hardcore boxing fans.
