Super Bantamweight champion Daniel Roman has been ordered to make a mandatory defense against Murodjon Akhmadaliev by the World Boxing Association.

Within the organisations regulations, the champion has a duty to defend his crown against his mandatory every 9 months.

Californian Roman made his last mandatory defense on July 16th 2018 against Moises Flores with the deadline expiring on March 15th.

Since then Roman as gone on to win a unification contest against TJ Doheny in one of this years best encounters whilst Akhmadaliev knocked out Carlos Carlson in three rounds last month.

According to Rule C.13 of the WBA states that the champion can’t face any other boxer other than the mandatory within 60 days after the lapse for the mandatory fight expires.

The WBA has given a lapse of one month from May 7th to June 6th for both parties to come to an agreement before a call for a purse bid comes into play.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
