Williams' WBO Title In High Demand

"Michael Jennings is set to fight Miguel Angel Cotto in a WBO welterweight elimination contest in New York next February.
The WBU champion will take on the 28-year-old Puerto Rican on St Valentine’s Day 2009 for the right to fight for the title.
Current WBO champion Paul Williams, who was another prospective opponent, is expected to vacate the title after opting to fight at light middleweight in his next outing against Verno Phillips for the interim WBO title."

On a personal note, I'm really hoping that after PW finishes off Phillips, he'll go back and defend his Welterweight title instead of vacating it. There isn't a fighter out there that should be able to call themselves WBO Welterweight champ without going through Williams first. The problem is, everyone wants that WBO title but nobody wants to fight the current champ for it.
