Magdaleno injured, Cesar Juarez may face Tapales in November

Cesar Juarez vs Jessie Magdaleno was presumed to fight on November but after Magdaleno's hand got injured in training, the fight was canceled.

As the WBO looking for an alternative opponent, they might choose the no. 2 contender Marlon Tapales of the Philippines.

Juarez is currently the no. 1 while Tapales at the 2nd spot. The fight could be for an interim title and also be a title Eliminator for Jessie Magdaleno's regular belt.

It will be an amazing fight if both parties agreed. Both fighters have a great experience, a former world title challenger Juarez vs the former WBO World Bantamweight champion Marlon Tapales of the Philippines.

Tapales has a record of 30W(13KO)2L while tough Mexican Cesar Juarez has a record of 20W(15KO)-5L.
