The bout had been rumoured to become a world title bout but the WBO's decision at the 11th hour has left some a bit miffed, wondering why they hadn't sorted out the announcement much earlier on.
The title is one that Donaire has previously held, and was recently stripped from Guillermo Rigondeaux, who's inactivity forced the WBO's hand. Again however questions remain as to why the WBO never forced a mandatory title fight, and once again the WBO have left themselves very open to derision in regards to the way they have seemingly bent over for powerful promoter Bob Arum.
Despite the possible comments against the WBO it does appear that their rankings have got Donaire and Juarez as #1 and #2 making it a perfect vacant title bout.
Sadly due to this bout only being confirmed as a world title bout now. We will not be able to preview the contest.
