WBA orders middleweight title resolution by December 31

On Thursday, the World Boxing Association issued a resolution ordering the winners of the two WBA middleweight championship fights scheduled for today to fight each other by December 31. WBA “Super Champion” Felix Sturm will fight Daniel Geale in Oberhausen, Germany. A few hours later, in Verona New York, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will defend his title against #3 ranked Grzegorz Proksa. Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions stated “We are glad that the WBA has issued this binding resolution and ordered the winner of Golovkin/Proksa to fight the winner of Sturm/Geale by the end of this year. Gennady has waited long enough to prove that he is the real WBA middleweight champion.”
