The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee notified today the teams behind Swedish-American Badou Jack, WBA Light Heavyweight Champion, and Russian Dmitry Bivol, Interim Champion of the category, that they must go to purse bids on September 25.

The WBA Championships Committee had ordered negotiations between British Nathan Cleverly, former WBA Light Heavyweight Champion, and Bivol on July 27. However, on August 12, Cleverly was granted a special permit to face Jack on the condition that the winner would have to fight the Russian boxer. Thus, the WBA complies with its issued resolutions by calling Jack and Bivol to purse bids.

Remember that Jack earned his title after beating Celeverly by TKO on August 26, while Bivol won the Interim Championship on May 21, 2016, after defeating Felix Valera by unanimous decision and has successfully defended his belt twice.

The purse bids will be held in the WBA offices located in Panama City, Panama, on September 25, and will be directed by the Panamanian Aurelio Fuego, who is part of the WBA Directorate.
