Former WBC world title challenger Devis Boschiero (8-6-2, 22 KOs) from Italy, fights former European champion Francesco Patera 23-3-0, 8 KOs) from Belgium, for the vacant World Boxing Council Silver lightweight title, on December 17 at the Allianz Cloud in Milan.
Patera commented: “Boschiero is a good fighter who throws a lot of punches from the start to the last second of the last round and I know he will do the same with me. I’m ready to fight him. My dream is to become a world champion and if everything goes well and I win the Silver title, I will be closer to facing Devin Haney.”
