COMMONWEALTH BULLETIN 23rd December 2017
COMMONWEALTH BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP DECLARED VACANT
With DUKE MICAH of Ghana having been unable to meet his CBC defence requirements despite an extension granted, the CBC has reluctantly declared the Bantamweight Championships vacant, this being applicable forthwith.
We wish Duke and his team the very best of luck with his World Title ambitions
JASON MOLONEY of Australia is the mandatory in this weight division and he and his team are being permitted to make a match for the vacant Title against a suitable challenger, subject to the approval of the CBC.
FORMER PRESIDENT DR MALEFETSANE (PETER) NGATANE (SOUTH AFRICA)
