18th June 2015 – Today in Milan Principe Boxing Events and Opi 2000 held the press conference of their next show: on Saturday, June 20, at legendary Principe theater in Milan. In the main event, Emanuele Blandamura (Italy, 23-1-1) will fight Michel Soro (France, 26-1-1) for the vacant European middleweight title. Soro is coming from a big win against Glen Tapia (ko4) for the USBA and NABF super welterweight titles last May 8 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (USA). Blandamura is no stranger to the big scene: he was European Union middleweight champion and fought for the European middleweight crown in Manchester (U.K.) losing to Billie Joe Saunders (ko8). The Ivory Coast born Soro is also a former French super welterweight champion and WBO-IBO world super welterweight challenger losing on points to Zaurbek Baysangurov on May 12, 2012 in Ukraine. So, we have a thrilling fight between two top pugilists.
