Bika carefully outboxed and outfought Nikola Sjekloca to succeed a common decision in a world title eliminator at Boardwalk Hall in the co-featured bout on the Adrien Broner-Gavin Rees lightweight title undercard.
With this win, Bika became one of united winner Andre Ward’s mandatory challengers. In 2010, Bika lost a near-shutout result to Ward but has since won three fights in a row. But with Ward out of battle likely until the fall because of a shoulder injury and Bika not in his plans, a replay is highly unlikely for now. Bika instead could be skull for a rematch with Montreal star and former titleholder Lucian Bute, who was ringside with his team to watch the fight.
