News: Matthysse-Kiram, Barthelemy-Relikh II, Machado-Mensah

The World Boxing Association Championships Committee ordered this week three big fights, and the respective teams behind the boxers involved must start to negotiate.

In the Super Lightweight division, the Cuban Rances Barthelemy (26-0, 13KOs), number one in the ranking, and the Belorussian Kiryl Relikh (21-2, 19KOs), second best, must fight for the title at 140 pounds, which is currently vacant. Both teams have 30 days to negotiate, starting from November 6; if they fail to reach an agreement, the fight will be called to a purse bid.

In the Super Featherweight category, the WBA Championships Committee asked the team behind Puerto Rican Alberto Machado (19-0, 16 KOs), current champion of the division, to negotiate a fight with the Ghanan Rafael Mensah (31-0, 23 KOs), second best in the ranking at 130 pounds. The teams have 30 days to negotiate, starting from November 6. If they do not agree on a date for the fight, it will be called to a purse bid.

Lastly, in the Welterweight division, the WBA Championships Committee ordered the Thai Tewa Kiram (38-0, 28 KOs), number one in the ranking, and the Argentine Lucas Matthysse (38-4, 35 KOs), third best ranked, to fight for the World Title at 147 pounds, that is currently vacant.

Both teams have 30 days to negotiate, starting from November 6, and if they do not reach an agreement, the fight will be called to a purse bid.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Flyweight title has become vacant after the official resignation of Japanese Kazuto Ioka, former Champion of the category.

The information was made official by the Japanese team through an email sent to the WBA Championships Committee.

The future of the division will be informed as soon as possible by the Championships Committee, following the steps indicated in the WBA Rules.

Matthysse-Kiram and Machado-Mensah would be an ok HBO card

I don't care what anyone says. Relikh was robbed twice in quick succession because he isn't a name. He beat Burns. He beat Barthelemy. Both bring in more money which is why they were gifted the decision. More or less…

Indongo vs Postol should be ordered.

I thought the WBA was trying to consolidate and go away from so many interim titles, yet here they are forcing matthysse and some bum no one has ever heard of, to fight for a vacant interim title.
