Oquendo's Handlers Win WBA Purse Bid For Charr Title Shot

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, the World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee called the fight between Manuel Charr and Fres Oquendo for the Heavyweight Title, which is currently held by Charr.

The purse bid took place earlier today and BoxingScene.com was notified that Oquendo's handlers walked away with the victory. They bid $600,000 to secure the rights to the fight - while Charr's team bid $101,000.

Oquendo is the mandatory challenger to the crown, and Charr was notified about this through a resolution last year, which indicated that both had to reach an agreement to fight and set a deadline of December 22.

Both parties were duly notified, the monetary percentage will be an even 50% split for each fighter.
