WBA orders Daniel Roman vs. Moises Flores, Kiryl Relikh vs. Eduard Troyanovsky


The WBA has sent out marching orders to its super bantamweight and super lightweight champions. 122-pound champions Daniel Roman (regular) and Moises Flores (interim) have 30 days to negotiate, as do newly crowned 140-pound champ Kiryl Relikh and #3-ranked Eduard Troyanovsky.

Roman (24-2-1, 9 KO) knocked out Shun Kubo for the title last September, then returned to Japan to outclass Ryo Matsumoto in February. Flores (25-0, 17 KO), meanwhile, has not fought since his Oscar-worthy performance against Guillermo Rigondeaux nine months back.

Relikh (22-2, 19 KO) had a breakout performance last week against Rances Barthelemy, thoroughly outclassing the Cuban veteran to earn his first world title. Stylistically, he could very easily wind up in a Fight of the Year against Troyanovsky (27-1, 24 KO), who has scored two early knockouts since his stunning upset loss to Julius Indongo in December 2016.

Two solid fights, one with serious action potential. No complaints here.
