Light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera (20-1, 14 KOs) will be fighting former interim WBA World light heavyweight champion Felix Valera (15-1, 13 KOs) in a 10 round fight on November 25 on the undercard of the Sergey Kovalev vs. Vyacheslav Sharbranskyy fight at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Barrera is ranked #2 WBA, #3 WBC, #3 WBO, #11 IBF at light heavyweight.

Barrera wasn’t too happy recently with Dmitry Bivol being elevated to the full WBA light heavyweight title position by the World Boxing Association without facing him.

Before the WBA made Bivol their champion at 175, he was scheduled to fight #12 WBA Trent Broadhurst for the title. Barrera felt that he should be the one fighting Bivol, as he’s rated No.2 with the WBA.

However, now that the WBA has installed Bivol as their champion at light heavyweight, it’s no longer an issue.

Valera is ranked #9 WBA. He’s won his last 2 fights since losing to Bivol by a 12 round unanimous decision last year on May 21.

Bivol beat Valera by the scores 119-107, 119-107 and 116-111.
