The World Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association have called for a purse bid between Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11KO), who is the super champion at super bantamweight, and Mexico's Moisés Flores (25-0, 17KO), who is the interim champion at 122 pounds.
The purse bid has been scheduled for next week, on April 3, at the agency's offices located in Panama City, Panama.
The minimum bid will be 120 thousand dollars divided with 75% for the super champion and 25% for the interim.
The teams working for Rigondeaux and Flores were notified that this contest was ordered as a mandatory obligation on July 18, 2016, and they began to negotiate the terms over the course of several months.
Late last year an agreement was reached, where they were set to collide on February 25th as part of the Miguel Cotto vs. James Kirkland undercard. However, Kirkland withdrew with an injury and as a result the entire card was canceled.
Rigondeaux has been the 122-pound champion of the WBA since the year 2012 so far he has defended that belt on seven occasions. He was able to secure the status of super champion in 2013 after beating Filipino Nonito Donaire in a high stakes HBO televised contest.
For his part, Flores won the interim world title in 2015 after defeating the Colombian Oscar Escandón and has defended that belt on two occasions.
The purse bid will be regulated by Panamanian Aurelio Fiengo, board member of the WBA.
