Gabriel Maestre vs. Mykal Fox 2
The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee ordered a direct rematch for the bout between Gabriel Maestre and Mykal Fox, which took place last Saturday in Minneapolis for the interim welterweight title.
The resolution issued on Tuesday by the pioneer body highlights that there are enough elements to order a direct rematch as requested by Marshall Kauffman, Fox’s promoter.
The fight was close and controversial with Maestre winning on cards of 114-114, 115-112 and 117-110. The WBA reviewed the fight round by round as per rule C.26 and determined that it was close enough to order a second bout between the two.
The parties have 30 days to finalize the terms of the rematch from the date of the resolution and if they do not reach an agreement within the established period, the WBA will call for an auction.
