Malignaggi vs Chaves Mandatory Ordered By The WBA

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.
