By Hilmar Rojas

The World Boxing Association has ordered WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7KOs) to face his mandatory challenger Diego Chaves (22-0, 18KOs). The negotiations period starts today, January 24th, and will close on the 23rd of February 2013. If the two sides are unable to reach an agreement, then the WBA will order a purse bid date. Malignaggi is scheduled to return on April 27th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Malignaggi was going to face Shane Mosley, but their match fell through due to a financial disagreement. Chaves has the WBA's interim-crown at 147 and first captured that title last July.

Diego Chavez is a guy that could've been decent if he left Argentina and found a different trainer. He's got decent handspeed and power, but not a great chin and bad defense. He can beat Paulie though, and that's why Paulie will probably avoid him for as long as he can.

Paula is no champion at 147lbs. This is all a joke. Boxing is going down when no talents like Paula are called champs.

Thats how you earn it by defeating the men directly in front of you or waiting your turn as they fight the champ! If you (B1706) had a clue how this works you'...
