Greg Cohen Promotion, representatives of the American boxer Rob Brant, won on Monday, August 13th, the auction of Teiken Promotion – who is in charge of Ryota Murata – the right to carry out the fight for the middleweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA), which ordered the Committee of Championships for the organization.
The minimum for the bidding was $200,000 and the Brant team offered $202,114. Teiken Promotion refrained from presenting a figure and, consequently, lost the auction.
The date proposed by Greg Cohen Promotions for the contest was October 27th, 2018, in Minneapolis, New York or Atlantic City.
The bid was held in Panama City and was directed by Aurelio Fiengo, a member of the board of directors of the WBA. The parties have 15 calendar days, from August 13th, to submit the signed contract.
