Fights for vacant or nonvacant (interim) world titles?

Postby Emaster » 30 May 2008, 16:36

World titles which were abandoned by or stripped of its holders were at stake in the following fights. The titles are not marked vacant in BoxRec, though, which is only accurate if one of the respective contestants had been appointed champion prior to the respective title fights. Otherwise the titles at stake should be marked vacant.

1966-11-28: Curtis Cokes vs. Jean Josselin for the vacant (?) WBC welterweight title

1991-05-18: Hector Camacho vs. Greg Haugen for the vacant (?) WBO light welterweight title

Interim titles were on the line in the following bouts. Again, the titles are not registered as vacant in BoxRec, which is only accurate if one of the respective contestants was appointed champion prior to the respective title fights. Otherwise the titles at stake should be marked vacant.

Interim titles were at stake in the following bouts as well, but Samuel Peter and Joel Casamayor had probably been declared champion before.

2007-10-06: Samuel Peter vs. Jameel McCline for the WBC heavyweight interim title

2007-11-10: Joel Casamayor vs. Jose Armando Santa Cruz for the WBC lightweight interim title

Additional note: If an interim champion does not lose the fight for the (vacant) full title, the interim title should be registered as at stake besides the (vacant) full title as another defense of the interim title is probably gained by not losing the bout.

I am not sure i agree that the following are deemed "vacant" in the classical sense -- they are better called "contingent" since the title can be won by the at-weight challenger -- if the challenger loses it is vacant.

I think vacant applies to a title where both fighters have a shot at winning the title.

2006-10-07: Diego Corrales vs. Joel Casamayor for the vacant (?) WBC lightweight title
2005-04-08: Mike Anchondo vs. Jorge Rodrigo Barrios for the vacant (?) WBO super featherweight title
2006-09-16: Jorge Rodrigo Barrios vs. Joan Guzman for the vacant (?) WBO super featherweight title
1972-12-16: Clemente Sanchez vs. Jose Legra for the vacant (?) WBC featherweight title
2007-03-19: Lorenzo Parra vs. Takefumi Sakata for the vacant (?) WBA flyweight title
1999-09-17: Manny Pacquiao vs. Medgoen Singsurat for the vacant (?) WBC flyweight title
2004-10-02: Beibis Mendoza vs. Rosendo Alvarez for the vacant (?) WBA light flyweight title
2000-08-20: Noel Arambulet vs. Joma Gamboa for the vacant (?) WBA minimumweight title
1998-11-13: Rosendo Alvarez vs. Ricardo Lopez for the vacant (?) WBA minimumweight title

Casamayor vs. Santa Cruz was DEFINITELY for Casa's INTERIM WBC lightweight title, because that's the title which he held and which was at stake. The full WBC champion at that time and still now is David Díaz. The time when it was just the other way round was before, earlier on, half a year or so...

Yes, no doubt that it was for the interim title, I wonder though if Casamayor or Santa Cruz had been appointed champion prior to their meeting or if the title was vacant. I'm pretty sure that Casamayor had been named champion before (on May 1, 2007 according to the encyclopaedia).

That's exactly right. The title was NOT vacant, that's why I wrote: "...for Casa's Interim title..."
