Bey-Shafikov Showdown Will Head To a Purse Bid

By Gregory Stangrit

The mandatory fight between IBF lightweight champion Mickey Bey (21-1-1, 10KOs) and challenger Denis Shafikov (35-1-1, 19KOs) is heading to a purse bid. Their respective promoters, Mayweather Promotions and Top Rank, have failed to reach an agreement. The purse bid will take place in ten days.

Bey captured the title last September with a controversial twelve round split decision over champion Miguel Vazquez. Shafikov faced Vazquez in February 2014, losing a twelve round decision in Macau, but then came back to win an IBF eliminator with a knockout of Rustam Nugaev in August and then secured a stay busy decision win over Miguel Mendoza in December.

So, this will land on either the May/Pac undercard or the Top Rank card the night before or the S.p.i.k.e. TV card the week before with Dirrell/Jack?
