Chestnut stripped of the title

Castaño's reasons seem attendible and solvable, but the AMB also stripped him of his title as Superwelter World Champion.

The World Boxing Association (WBA) stripped Brian Castaño of the superwelter world title, after Buenos Aires refused to sign a contract to hold a mandatory fight with Frenchman Michael Soro.

According to a communiqué issued by the same body, the title superwelter is' vacant '. After the Championships Committee “applied the rules” in force, as reflected by the Boxing Champions site.

The president of the agency trusted that the vacant crown will be played by Soro and the undefeated Russian Magomed Kurbanov (17-0; 11kos.). On July 20 at the Palais des Deportes in Marseille, France.

Castaño did not sign the intended contract, because two of the requirements required by its handlers were not met. That an anti-doping check be carried out by the VADA company (Olympic checks). And that the trading exchange be deposited into a bank account ten days in advance.

The French combat promoter company did not accept any of the requests of the Castaño team.

Castaño had achieved the interim title at the Polideportivo Presidente Perón de González Catán in November 2016. When he beat Puerto Rican Emmanuel de Jesús by knockout in the sixth round.

Then 'Boxi' Castaño (15-01; 11kos.) successfully defended his crown by beating Soro (July 2017). And Cedric Vitu (March 2018). While in his last fight he tied with Cuban Erislandy Lara, in Brooklyn, USA.
