WBA postpones Caballero-Walters purse bid

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA Championships Committee announced on Wednesday that the purse bid for the mandatory fight between WBA featherweight world champion Celestino ¨Pelenchin¨ Caballero and mandatory challenger Nicholas Walters scheduled for Thursday has been postponed for one week. This was done at the request of the parties who are still seeking to reach an agreement. If nothing is finalized, the auction will be held on September 20 at WBA Haedquarters in Panama City.
