Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Moises Flores Purse Bid on December 19

The WBA Championships Committee is on a roll with scheduling purse bids to push along some of the ordered fights that are stalling in drawn out negotiations.

A purse bid has been ordered to force the fight between WBA Super World super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), the two-time Olympic gold medal winner from Miami, Florida, by way of Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, and Moises Flores (25-0, 17 KOs), the rugged puncher from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

The minimum bid on the fight is US $150,000 with the purse split of 75% for Rigondeaux and 25% for Flores.

The Bidding will take place on Monday, December 19th, 2016, at 11:00 a.m., at WORLD BOXING ASSOCIATION OFFICE located at: Avenida Aquilino de la Guardia c/c Calle 47, PH Ocean Plaza, Office 14-05, Marbella, Panama, Panama.

The Bidding will be directed by WBA Championship Committee Vice Chairman Mr. Aurelio Fiengo.

Flores has been out of the ring since winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Paulus Amdunda in a clash for the WBA interim and IBO super bantamweight titles.

Rigondeaux had a quick fight in July at the Ice Arena in Cardiff, Wales. He stopped Jazza Dickens in two quick rounds. Dickens suffered a broken jaw in the contest and was unable to continue.

A deal for Rigondeaux-Flores had been reached a few months ago and the fight was going to be part of a planned year-end pay-per-view card that featured Puetro Rico superstar Miguel Cotto in the main event. Cotto was unable to secure an opponent and his return was pushed back to February 25 of 2017. That left Rigondeaux and Flores without a platform and the WBA lost patience with both sides not finalizing an alternative deal.

I saw Rigo fight in Atlantic City a few years ago. It was incredibly boring and the place was practically empty. Will never go out of my way to watch another of his fights again. Did get to see Kirkland…
