Word is an agreement is close for a bout between WBA interim lightweight champion Miguel “Aguacerito” Acosta and WBA world champion Paulus Moses for the absolute WBA crown. The bout was proposed by the WBA after parties were unable to reach agreement for a bout between Acosta and Miguel Domínguez. The bout would satisfy the mandatory requirement. “We will send the information indicating that this is a mandatory fight and the managers of both boxers should arrive at an economic agreement in 30 days. If they do not close the agreement, the WBA will hold a purse bid to define the purse, the location and the date of the challenge. It will be for the absolute lightweight title,” said WBA vice-president Gilberto Mendoza Jr.
