The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee has announced that a purse bid has been ordered for the mandatory bout between “regular” world heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan and official challenger Daniel Dubois.
The purse bid is scheduled to be held on Monday, March 14.
The bidding, which will be directed by the chairman of the Championships Committee Carlos Chavez, will be held at 10:00 am, US Eastern time, and will be conducted through the Zoom platform.
The WBA sent the communication to both parties with all of the necessary information pertaining to the purse bid proceeds, explaining the rules and conditions for this type of situation.
Bryan must defend the title against Dubois after having received a special permission to face Jonathan Guidry this past January. Dubois is the mandatory challenger because he held the division’s interim title. That belt went away when the WBA enforced their plan to reduce title belts – which in turn eliminated every interim belt in their organization.
The defending champion has a record of 22 wins, no losses and 15 knockouts, while the very dangerous Dubois has hard punching tally of 17 wins, 1 loss and 16 knockouts. The sole defeat came at the hands of Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce in 2020.
