The World Boxing Organization has appointed promotional trades

The World Boxing Organization has appointed a promotional bid for the fight of world champion in welterweight Maurice Hooker and Mexican Alex Saucedo. Last month, the teams were given twenty days to come to an agreement on their own, but since the deal is still incomplete, WBO announced a tender that will be held August 14 at the headquarters of the organization in San Juan.

Recall that on June 9 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester (UK) American boxer Maurice Hooker defeated local fighter Terry Flanagan and won the vacant WBO title at the junior welterweight. Before the fight, many positioned Flanagan, as a clear favorite, but the Briton could not adjust to the style of the opponent and was defeated.
