WBO received this request by email:
Dear President Valcarcel,
On behalf of Top Rank and Oleksandr Gvozdyk, we respectfully request that the WBO designate Mr. Gvozdyk, its current No. 1 ranked light heavyweight, as the mandatory challenger for the light heavyweight world title.
We are copying Mr. Gvozdyk’s manager Egis Klimas on the message to confirm.
Very truly yours,
