Matchroom Boxing won the rights to promote the WBA super welterweight eliminator bout between Michel Soro and Israil Madrimov, ranked number two.

Matchroom representative Frank Smith bid USD $245,000, surpassing the $217,770 put on the table by Y12 Management. Matchroom gave three venue options including Las Vegas (USA), Cleveland (USA), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan). The distribution will be 60% of the amount for Soro and 40% for Madrimov.

Matchroom now has 20 days to submit the contracts signed by both parties to the WBA office.

    • You would think that, with the amount of money that he spent, Hearn would either take this to France or Uzbekistan or put it on some otherwise massive card. Vegas, maybe. Cleveland, I’d be shocked.

      I’d take Soro to win this one, but he’s been out now for 2 years, so I’m leaning Madrimov.

  • Monte Carlo, Monaco would be an obvious choice. It seems like Matchroom does a show there every fall…
