The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee sent a reminder to the teams of super lightweight champion, Josh Taylor and his mandatory challenger, Alberto Puello, that on Thursday, April 7, the negotiation period for their fight expires.

Last March 8, the WBA ordered the fight between the Scottish and the Dominican and granted a period of 30 days to reach an agreement, as provided by rule C.13, Fighting Limitations. Once the time is up, the committee may order an auction for the fight. 

The pioneer body sent a statement to both parties on Wednesday requesting a response about the negotiations and explaining that the possibility of calling for an purse bid after the deadline. 

Taylor must face Puello in his next defense as the Dominican is the WBA’s top-ranked fighter and was the interim champion at the time of the start of the world title reduction plan.
