The WBA has ordered its number three seed Lucas Matthysse to fight its number one seed Tewa Kiram for their currently vacant world title. Matthysse, 38-4 (35), is a noted power puncher but has suffered four losses, admittedly all at the top level, and after his most recent to Viktor Postol, had over two years out of the ring. He returned in March to knock out Emmanuel Taylor for the vacant WBA Inter-Continental and WBO International welterweight belts.
For his part, Kiram, 38-0 (28), may be number one ranked, but has only fought once outside his homeland of Thailand, in his third fight, in Vietnam. However, Kiram has campaigned most of his career at welterweight, whereas Matthysse has moved up since his layoff. It is an intriguing match up, and one which the WBA has given 30 days to the fighter's teams to agree, after which it will go to purse bids.
Kiram is only twenty five, Matthysse a decade older, but they say the last thing to go is a boxer's punch. This one has the potential to be a sparky fight, and it will be interesting to see where it takes place, too, as Argentian Matthysse often fights in the USA, but may fancy a homecoming in is fight mad nation of birth.
