The World Boxing Organisation has ordered another purse bid for the WBO light heavyweight title fight between the champ Sergey Kovalev (33-3-1) and the mandatory Anthony Yarde (18-0-0).
That’s the second purse bid that is being set. The first one had to be done until April 8. Even though there was an initial agreement between the two camps, nothing really happened.
WBO released a statement on the matter, which is said to have arisen from a lack of communication, the WBO want things cleared up this week.
