Badou Jack vacates WBA title

Recommended Posts

Badou Jack’s reign as WBA Light Heavyweight Champion is over after less than a month. “The Ripper” dropped the belt yesterday ahead of a planned purse bid with mandatory challenger Dmitry Bivol.

Going by rankings, this will possibly result in Bivol against either #2 Sullivan Barrera or #3 Oleksandr Gvozdyk for the vacant title.

Jack (22-1-2, 13 KO) pulverized Nathan Cleverly for the belt on the Mayweather-McGregor card in his light heavyweight debut. It’s a bit surprising to see him vacate immediately, especially considering he fought dangerous super middleweights like George Groves and James DeGale, but the ratio between Bivol’s threat and his name recognition seems to have been a bit too much for him.

Bivol (11-0, 9 KO) was last seen demolishing Cedric Agnew on Ward-Kovalev II. He looks like the goods at age 26 and should make for a hell of a fight against someone like Barrera.

I hear he may face Stevenson next

That would be worth tossing the WBA strap.
