According to sources in Nicaragua there has been a tentative date set for the WBA Minimumweight unification bout between unbeaten Thai Knockout CP Freshmart (12-0, 6) [น็อคเอาท์ ซีพีเฟรชมาร์ท] and Nicaraguan warrior Byron Rojas (17-2-3, 8).
From what we under-stand the bout has been pencilled in for June 29th and is set to take place in Thailand, with a specific venue yet to be set for the bout.
According to Nicaraguan reports Rojas plans to get to Thailand more than a week before the fight date so that he can began to acclimatise to the conditions in Thailand. Those conditions have of course made Thailand one of the most problematic places for visitors in the past.
For Rojas the bout will be his first defense of the title, a title that he took from Hekkie Budler earlier this year, whilst Knockout the bout serves as a long awaited chance to become "the" WBA champion following 3 defenses of the interim title.
