Fight Week: Stanionis-Ortiz in undefeated duel for the WBA belt

This Monday took place the bidding for the mandatory welterweight bout between the World Boxing Association (WBA) champion, Lithuanian Eimantas Stanionis, and his mandatory challenger, American Vergil Ortiz Jr.  

The bid took place during  the WBA Centennial Convention being held from December 11-14 at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Golden Boy, represented by Roberto Diaz, won the rights to the fight after offering US$ 2,300,000, an offer that surpassed the US$ 2,100,000 of TGB Promotions.

The company presided by Oscar De La Hoya gave three options to carry out the fight. The first one on February 25, in Texas; the second one on March 11, in Los Angeles; and the third one on March 25, in Las Vegas. 

Now both teams will have an estimated deadline to send the signed contracts and finally confirm the date and venue of the fight. The winner of the fight will face the winner between the Super Champion of the category, Errol Spence Jr. and Keith Thurman, to define the only WBA 147 lbs. monarch.
