Rau'Shee Warren vs. Jamie McDonnell Ordered By The WBA

By Hilmar Rojas

The World Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association (WBA) have ordered the start of negotiations between Rau'Shee Warren (13-1, 4KO) - the super champion at bantamweight - and British boxer Jamie McDonnell (28-2-1, 13KO), who holds the "regular championship" of the division.

Two weeks ago, Warren got revenge when he captured the WBA title after beating Juan Carlos Payano of the Dominican Republic by majority decision in a Premier Boxing Champions televised rematch.

The rematch was allowed by the sanctioning body on the basis of the winner making an immediate defense against McDonnell.

The European boxer has held the WBA 'regular' bantamweight belt since 2014, when he beat Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawaty of Thailand and has defended the belt four times. Two of those defense were very close victories over Japanese boxer Tomoki Kameda and another defense was a spectacular brawl against Fernando Vargas whom was knocked out in nine rounds.

The teams behind Warren and McDonnell have 30 days to negotiate and if they fail to reach an agreement then a purse bid will be ordered. The WBA's World Championships Committee has notified both parties of this resolution.

Warren vs. McDonnell is part of the WBA's decision, first discussed at the start of the year, to cut down the volume of WBA titleholders in each division and avoid the confusion over which fighter is the actual WBA champion in each individual weight class.

[QUOTE=Hougigo;16830236]Not just that, they ordered mando fights for 130 and 140 too...so Jezreel and Sosa and then Burns/Some Belrusian... but they never ordered it anywhere else. Just WBA being selective again. The 118 mando is better than the other two,…

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;16830120]You might not care about it but I think it's a very interesting fight. McDonnell put on some good showings against Tomoki Kameda. It is interesting to note that the WBA hasn't ordered Lil G vs Jacobs, though.[/QUOTE] Or why…
