Stevenson defeated Christopher Diaz via a twelve round Unanimous Decision back in April to ascend into the WBO featherweight No. 1 spot and most recently knocked out Alberto Guevara in the third round in July.

Joet Gonzalez will be delighted with the order, as he has been gunning for this since knocking out Manuel Avila in March, his first fight in 2019.

The order by the WBO leaves Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank with nothing but a 30 day negotiation period to produce an agreement and if they fail, the WBO will stage a purse bid involving all the eligible sanctioning bodies for the fight.
