The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee ordered the mandatory fight between the Super Featherweight Super Champion, American Gervonta Davis, and the main challenger, Panamanian Ricardo Nunez. The champion has been duly notified and will be given a period of 30 days for both parties to reach an agreement.
The statutes of the organization give right to the president, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, as well as to the Committee of Championships, to give a period of mandatory defense at discretion. In the case of Davis, the deadline was 12 months, which has already been fulfilled and now he has the duty of facing the Central American challenger.
The date for the start of negotiations is May 7th and the period ends on June 6th. Failure to reach an agreement means that the fight will be sent to auction, for which both parties would be duly notified in relation to the points of date, place, and conditions.
Davis is Super Champion since April 21st of 2018. Since then, he has made only one exhibition of his belt against Mexican native Hugo Ruiz, whom he knocked out on February 19th.
