Malignaggi, Chaves Agreement Made For Interim Fights

By Hilmar Rojas

The World Boxing Association has been advised that WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi, and mandatory challenger Diego Chaves, have reached an agreement through their managers to take interim fights before facing each other in a mandatory showdown. The WBA had ordered a purse bid for Monday. Both of the boxers will now move forward with other bouts. Provided they both win, the WBA will order the two of them to fight each other next. Malignaggi is scheduled to defend his title against Adrien Broner on June 22nd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Broner, the WBC's champion at 135, will move up in weight by two divisions to take the fight.
