On 8th July, in the crowded square Piazza XX Settembre, Civitanova Marche, Italy, the 28-year old "Er Puma" Sandon, nephew of former champion Sumbu (Patrick) Kalambay, failed to win the first belt provided by his organization.
Sandon gave the soul but had to surrender before the best physical condition of Ziani, 20-year old.
Both unbeaten and soutpaws, put into the match two different ways of conducting the battle, with the Frenchman capable of imposing his boxing at close range, which involved very strenuous Sandon up to abandonment.
Referee of fierce comparison was the Italian Guido Cavalleri. Have officiated as judges three other Italians as Massimo Barrovecchio, Sergio Silvi and Adrio Zannoni.
Ziani has maintained its undefeated record with 9 wins (1 before the limit) and 1 draw.
Sandon wrote his first defeat after 14 victories (5 before the limit).
The Italian cruiserweights Giacobbe Fragomeni and Silvio Branco were measured at a distance in view to a direct challenge, dealing with two "testers" of Eastern Europe over a distance of 6 srounds.
Both have won by decision points. The 41 year-old Fragomeni, 29-3-1 (12), has imposed on the 27 year old Lithuanian Remigijus Ziausys, 15-39-3 (7), while Silvio Branco, which turns 45 next month, has ruled the 30 year old Latvian southpaw Jevgenijs Andrejevs, 6-39-0 (1). Branco now has a record of 62-10-2 (37).
In the same division of 200 pounds Mirko Larghetti, 28 years-old, has left the ring with undefeated log of 13 wins (7) after defeating 20-year old Latvian southpaw Arturs Kulikauskis, 7-10-2 (4), with a points decision over 6 rounds.
The 28-year old welterweight Antonio Moscatiello reported a second points win after 9 inside limits success against the expert and brave Nicaraguan Ronny McField, 13-10-2-1 NC (10), over 6 rounds. The undefeated Moscatiello, 12-0-0 (9), is a nephew of Fragomeni.
