Contender winner to get top 10 WBA ranking

The Contender has joined forces with World Boxing Association (WBA) ahead of the final live bout on Friday, November 9th from the Forum in Los Angeles. For the first time since its inception, WBA will designate the winner of the current season (Shane Mosley Jr or Brandon Adams) to be automatically ranked in the top ten, creating a shortened path for the winner to participate in a title shot to win the WBA middleweight belt. The partnership aims to create more opportunities for young boxers around the world.

“We are thrilled to work with EPIX and The Contender, a great tournament with strong talent, to create a path to success for the show’s champion by automatically ensuring their top 10 ranking, and ensuring strong competition for boxers globally,” said Gilberto Mendoza, President of World Boxing Association.
