The ruling now pits the mandatory challenger Michel Soro against No. 2 rated Erislandy Lara for the vacant belt.

Lara (25-3-3, 14 KOs) had in the past unified two belts in the division before losing them both to Former IBF, IBO and WBA "Super" champion Jarrett Hurd. He was last in action against in March against Brian Castano and they both fought to a 12 round split Draw.
