Once the bout between Liakhovich and Briggs is over, both parties will have until the middle of November to reach a deal with a site and date for the fight. If a deal cannot be reached, a purse bid will take place at the WBO offices in Puerto Rico on November 16, 2006. Said Ibragimov, “I am eagerly awaiting the result of Saturday night’s fight, but no matter who wins, I am prepared to challenge the winner and become the new WBO heavyweight champion of the world.”
