The permission is granted at the request of the interested parties and based on WBA rules C.46 and C.28, also taking into account that the fighters occupy places 2 and 4 of the raking at more than 200 pounds.
However, the winner of this fight must immediately start negotiations with Puerto Rican Fres Oquendo, who has the right to fight for a world title after winning a dispute in a New York court.
This agreement must be made before December 22, 2017. Otherwise, the contest will be called to a purse bid and the percentages will be 50 percent for each boxer.
If the fight between Ustinov and Charr ends in a tie or is not valid, Oquendo must face the next available contender.
