WBA approved the creation of the super cruiserweight division

The Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association (WBA) ordered the mandatory fight between the Super Flyweight Super Champion, Juan Francisco Estrada and the champion of the category, Joshua Franco. 

The pioneer organization sent the communication to the teams of both fighters, who will have 30 days to negotiate the fight from February 9 to March 11, 2022.

Rule C.13, Fighting Limitations, establishes that the champion cannot fight an opponent different from the official contender in the 60 days following the expiration of the mandatory defense period. 

As established in the WBA rules, the committee and the president of the body may define the period for the mandatory defense at their discretion. In the case of the Mexican monarch, his mandatory defense period expired, so he must face Franco in his next fight.

The Committee could call a purse bi if the teams do not reach an agreement in the corresponding period or if any of the parties refuses to sign the contract. The ordering of the fight is another move towards the world title reduction plan that the WBA has put in place since August of last year.
