Zeuge vs Ekppo Purse Bid Summoned.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee summoned the Purse Bid for the Super Middleweight title fight between German Tyron Zeuge and Nigerian Isaac Ekpo, on August 28th

They already fought on March 23 and the teuton was given the victory by technical decision in the fifth round. However, it was an intense fight with the 49-46, 48-47 and 49-47score cards. 

The Championships Committee, upon request of team Ekpo, analyzed the fight and ordered a rematch giving them 30 days to negotiate, however, Zeuge was granted a special permit to fight Paul Smith with the condition that the winner of that bout should negotiate with the Nigerian Gladiator Zeuge. All of this supported by WBA rules. 

However, the failure of the parties to reach an agreement forced the Championships Committee summon a purse bid, in the WBA offices in Panamá city, and wil be presided by Aurelio Fiengo.
