WBA Championships Committee orders Choi-Baumgardner 

The World Boxing Association (WBA), through its Championships Committee, ordered the bout between super featherweight champion Hyun Mi Choi and American Alicya Baumgardner, owner of the WBC, IBF and WBO belts.

The WBA has put all its efforts in the One Boxing project, which seeks to give the possibility to the champions to unify their crowns and in this case, after an analysis, it was determined that there is no impediment for the champion of the pioneer organization to face the American for the undisputed 130 lbs. title. 

The Committee placed Baumgardner as the mandatory challenger and now the teams of both fighters will have a period of 30 days to negotiate the fight and reach an agreement.

If the fight does not take place within the period granted or in the event that either party refuses to sign the contract, the committee may order an Purse Bid with a 50% split for each of the champions. This decision renders any previous ruling null and void.

Choi has a record of 20 wins, no losses, 1 draw and 5 knockouts. Baumgardner has 13 wins, 1 loss, 7 KOs.
