WBA orders Dalakian-Jimenez

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee ordered the fight between WBA flyweight champion Artem Dalakian and his mandatory challenger David “Medallita” Jimenez. The Committee gave a period of 30 days to the parties to negotiate that will end on August 30. If no agreement is reached or if any of the parties refuses, an auction may be called.

WBA championship rule 11 states that the champion must defend the title against the official challenger every 9 months from the date on which he became champion. In Dalakian’s case, he made his last mandatory fight on November 20, 2021 and that is why he must fight Jimenez.

  • Who are these guys? It doesn’t even show their records, where they’re from. Nothing.

  • Dalakian is a really good fighter, but he’s just kind of have been…. just a random champion. Had the title for four and a half years and he’s only made five defenses and he’s been one fight a year for the last three (and it’s a bout to be four because he isn’t fighting twice this year). That’s too bad because he turns 35 next week and 112 is a really good division.

  • Great match up. Dalakian is getting on a bit but still techically sound. Jiminez has a good chance having beaten Sandoval in an eliminator.
