WBA Orders Purse Bids For Rolando Romero Vs. Ohara Davies

The WBA has called for a purse bid between the current 140 lb champion Rolando Romero and his mandatory Ohara Davies on July 24th, 2023, in Panama City, Panama.

The news of the purse bid comes amid reports that Romero may have been looking to avoid Davies and fight Ryan Garcia instead.

Garcia and Romero had made it clear that they were looking to fight each other in a bout that would have been very lucrative.

In contrast, Davies is not a big name and presents a higher risk for Romero as a loss would dampen his career.

After all, Romero’s standing has fallen somewhat despite his WBA-title win over Ismael Barroso.

Romero was behind on the judges’ scorecards before the referee controversially stopped the bout, with many believing that Barroso had been deprived of the chance to become champion.

The sentiment on social media was mixed. A certain subset questioned whether Davies was a big name, who deserved a title shot. Meanwhile, others backed Davies to come out on top.
