After evaluating the request made by the former champion Juan Carlos Reveco and his team, the WBA championships committee ordered the rematch of the fight with Japanese Kazuto Ioka, who fought on April 22 in Japan.

The bout ended favorable to the Asian 114-114, 113-116, 113-115 in the scorecards that meant the defeat of Reveco by majority decision and the loss of his flyweight world title.

Due to the controversial decision, the immediate rematch was ordered according to point c.26 of the WBA rules.

They were given 30 days to negotiate and in case they do not reach an agreement the bid would be split according to regulations, 60% of the Champ Ioka and 40% for Reveco.

Both parties were notified of the decisión, and are aware that they should have any other fight until complying with the rematch.
