As of now, the planned February 6 clash in Merida, Mexico between WBA interim super featherweight champion Likar Ramos and Jorge “El Coloradito” Solís will not be for Ramos’ WBA belt. “The WBA has not received any communication on the part of the promoters of Ramos or Solís,” said WBA vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza. “They need an our approval and this has not been produced. On the other hand, Solís needs to be reclassified because he is not found among the first fifteen in the rankings of the super featherweight category. Because of this, the case should be approved by the Championship Committee. For the ratings, the WBA regulations are very clear and they should comply. In this situation, it’s feasible that Jorge Linares and Likar Ramos could maybe fight for the WBA interim title in Venezuela, since Linares is another who has shown interest in that crown.” Mendoza also said Solis’ promoter Zanfer still owes money to the WBA for other previously sanctioned bouts.
