Manuel Charr vs. Trevor Bryan - Purse Bid on March 2

The World Boxing Association (WBA) World Championships Committee has announced that a purse bid was ordered for the heavyweight fight between "regular" champion Manuel Charr and challenger Trevor Bryan, who holds the interim-title.

The purse bid has been set down for March 2 at 11:00 a.m. at the WBA offices in Panama City.

The WBA's super champion at the weight if Anthony Joshua, who also holds the WBA, IBF, IBO world titles. Joshua is only required to make a mandatory defense, under the WBA, every 18 months.


The WBA notified both parties of the mandatory fight. Both Charr and Bryant have had a long periods of inactivity, and that is main reason why the WBA's Championship Committee ordered the Purse Bid for the mandatory fight, as things have stalled for both athletes.

Due to injuries and other issues, Charr has been out of the ring since November of 2017, when he beat Alexander Ustinov. And Bryan has been away since August of 2018, when he easily defeated BJ Flores.

In this division, the amount for the right to participate in the purse bid is US $15,000, and the minimum amount to offer is US $1,000,000.

The ratings committee vice chairman, Panamanian Aurelio Fiengo, will be the person directing the bidding.

A million quid to win the bid to host this fight, you're having a laugh.

Minimum bid of 1 million$? For a joke non title fight?

Fres coming out guns blazing in round 1, looking for a Hail Mary miracle punch. It's his only chance to beat George Foreman's record before he gasses out.
