The WBO has ordered a 30 day negotiating period between their junior lightweight champion, Jamel Herring, and his mandatory contender, Lamont Roach. If an agreement is not reached, a purse bid will be called (with a minimum bid of $150,000 in place). Herring won the title on May 25 by defeating Masayuki Ito via unanimous decision.
