It Now Begins “Billy Dib vs Alberto Servidei”
Billy “The Kid” Dib (32-1-0) will make the first defense of his IBF Featherweight title when he clashes with undefeated Italian, Alberto Servidei (31-0-2) on November 19th, 2011 at the Homebush Sports Centre, Sydney, New South Wales.
Dib claimed the vacant title when he defeated Jorge Lacierva of Mexico in July and has decided to take on the #8 ranked IBF Featherweight, Servidei for his first defense.
Dib has promised a knockout victory in the fight saying, “The thing for me that intrigues me about this fight, and is so exciting, is he is undefeated and this is my opportunity to beat an undefeated fighter. I’m expecting to put on a great performance for the Australian public, but I do have one thing on my mind and that’s going out there and knocking him out.”
Former European and Italian champion, Servidei is yet to fight out of his home country of Italy. ”He’s been comfortable fighting in his own backyard and now it’s time for him to step out of his comfort zone,” Dib said. The Italian’s last fight was over 6 rounds where he had a points win over a little known Hungarian boxer.
It promises to be an exciting fight with both fighters entering the ring with incredible fight records and that spells one thing fireworks! A win for Dib could potentially set up a mouthwatering clash with WBA Super champion, Chris John in the near future.
In the co-feature bout WBU Cruiserweight champion, Danny Price (8-3-2) will take on James Chan (5-9-2) of Queensland who hasn’t recorded a win since 2008. The bout will take place at Cruiserweight over 8 rounds.
On the undercard:
The evening will start at 6:30pm sharp and the night will be filled with entertainment in and out of the ring.. Tickets start from $68 and can be bought from Ticket Direct.
