The super featherweight world title fight between champion Hector Garcia and mandatory challenger Lamont Roach Jr. will go to purse bid on May 25 in Houston, Texas, as ordered by the World Boxing Association (WBA) championships committee on Monday. 

The Dominican had received a special permission to move up in class to face Gervonta Davis last January, but once that bout is over, he must face Roach in his next fight. 

The bid will have a minimum amount of US $ 120,000.00 to obtain the rights while the purse will have a split of 75% for Garcia and 25% for Roach. The WBA sent the formal communication to both teams.  

Garcia will be making the first defense of his championship, which he won in August of last year by defeating Roger Gutierrez, while Roach will have his world title shot, which he earned by defeating Angel Rodriguez in an eliminator held in July of last year.
