OMAR FIGUEROA POISED TO VACATE LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE

Omar Figueroa indicated he is likely to vacate his WBC lightweight title in order to move up to the 140-pound weight class. The announcement was confirmed on the WBC's website just days after Figueroa stopped Daniel Estrada to retain his title and improve his pro record to 24-0-1 with 18 KOs. The WBC reported that Figueroa can no longer make the lightweight limit of 135 pounds and looked forward to challenging world 140-pound champion Danny Garcia. Figueroa, from Texas, stepped up his competition level since April 2013 and has run off victories against Abner Cotto, Nihito Arakawa, Jerry Belmontes and Estrada.The other lightweight titleholders are Terrance Crawford (WBO), Miguel Vazquez (IBF) and the ridiculously inactive Richar Abril (WBA). --Scott Shaffer
