By Gabriel F. Cordero

The World Boxing Association has decided to vacate two world titles. The first one vacated is the interim super welterweight which was held by Australian Anthony Mundine. The Ratings Committee reported that it has implemented the rules adter Mundine’s camp failed to obey an order for a mandatory fight against world champion Austin Trout.

WBA also removed 105-pound the interim Thai world champion Paipharob Kokiemgym due to legal problems he faces that prevent him from defending.
