The Ukrainian Vycheslav Senchenko, WBA Welterweight World Champion, will make his fourth title defense against the challenger Paul Malignaggi, in the city of Donetsk, Ukraine in April.
The Purse Bid was directed by Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, WBA Vice-president, and supervised by Aurelio Fiengo WBA Championships Vice-chairman.
Senchenko promoters won the bidding when offered $ 1.000.010 to promote the fight and announced that the fight will take place on April 27, 28 o 29 in Donetsk.
On the other hand, Golden Boy Promotions, representing Malignaggi, offered $250.000 to promote the fight in New York, Milan or Palermo on April 21.
“These two fighters will fight because the Interim Champion, Ismael El Massoudi, is facing some legal problems and will not be available to fight” said Mendoza.

Senchenko is undefeated and has a record of 32 wins, with 21 KO. While, Malignaggi has a record of 30 wins, 4 lose with 6 KO’s.
