Danny Garcia-Ajose Olusegun Purse Bid Pushed Back, 6/1
By Osman Rodriguez
The World Boxing Council has pushed back the purse bid for Danny Garcia's mandatory defense of the WBC junior welterweight title. The purse bid was initially scheduled for today, related to the ordered fight between Garcia (23-0, 14KOs) and mandatory challenger Ajose Olusegun (30-0, 14KO).
Garcia's side, through Golden Boy Promotions, requested a two week extension, which the WBC approved and set a new purse bid date of June 1. The request to postpone was likely made in order to provide Garcia and Golden Boy some additional time to finalize a potential deal for a fight with Amir Khan, which is being targeted for July 7th at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Discussions are ongoing but Garcia's financial requirements have yet to be satisfied.
