The WBC has announced two world title fights in the super-featherweight and minimum-weight division.
The organization has ordered a purse bid between O’Shaquie Foster and the number-one-contender/mandatory Eduardo Hernández in a super-featherweight bout.
Foster will make the first defense of his WBC belt, which he acquired following his victory over the, then, undefeated Mexican Rey Vargas. The victory secured the vacant WBC belt against the former two-division champion.

In addition, the WBC has held its purse bid for the minimum-weight champion, Panya Pradabsri and the interim champion Yudai Shigeoka.
The purse bid was won by Kameda Promotions with a winning bid of $213,000, beating Petchyindee Boxing Promotions, who had offered $170,000.
Pradabsri enters the bout after having defended his title with a win over Norihito Tanaka via an eighth-round TKO. In contrast, Shigeoka became a mandatory after stopping Wilfredo Méndez in the seventh round.
So moving forward, boxing fans have plenty to keep them entertained.
