Tatli vs De Vitis
By Per-Ake Persson
WBA I/C lightweight champ Edis Tatli (22-0) defends the title May 9 at the Metropole Arena in Helsinki (Finland) against Italian Antonio De Vitis (26-3-1). It will be Tatli’s third defence of the title he won last year with a points win over dangerman Felix Lora. Tatli is ranked # 12 by the WBA and # 4 by the EBU. De Vitis is # 7 EBU at superfeather. The undercard to this P 3 Boxing show will be announced later.
April 12, Esbjerg, DEN, Blue Water Dokken, Sauerland Promotion AG,
8x3; Mateusz Masternak, 90,8, Pol W8-U Stjepan Vugdelija, 92,0, Cro
80-72 twice and 80-70 in a one-sided fight that closed the show at past 1 AM. Vugdelija was tough and durable but outclassed.
8x3: Torben Keller, 69,0, Den TKO 4 (not out) Travis Hartman, 68,6, US
Hartman retired with a possible broken hand. He stunned Keller in the first but was then outboxed. Hartman looked skinny and out of shape.
8x3: Dennis Ceylan, 56,8, Den W8-U Ivan Ruiz Morote, 57,4, Spa
80-72 twice and a too close 77-75 after eight rounds of no-action boxing.
10x3: Anthony Yigit, 63,3, Swe WTD6-U Kasper Bruun, 63,2, Den
Yigit won the vacant WBC Baltic title after six completed rounds on scores of 58-55 and 58-56 twice. Bruun was cut over the right early in the sixth after an accidental clash of heads and referee Yuri Koptsev gave him one more round. Bruun did well at times with counters and even floored Yigit early in the third. But it was a flash knockdown and the flashy southpaw Swede got up and worked over Bruun for long spells with barrages to the head and body of a fastpaced, exciting bout fueled by the classic Sweden vs Denmark rivalry.
Erik Skoglund, 79,0, Swe TKO 9 (2.50) Danilo D’Agata, 78,8, Ita
Skoglund retained the EU lightheavy title but had it more difficult than expected against an awkward and unschooled opponent. Skoglund worked hard and at a fast pace and D’Agata tired and in the ninth he fell apart and was hurt by a right hook, then took more before going cut and with a heavy nosebleed. The sponge came in but referee Victor Coughlin kicked it out, continued his count and then stopped it. It was scored 80-72, 79-73 and 78-75 after eight.
6x3: Abdul Khattab, 79,0, copenhagen, Den TKO 5 (not out) Chris Jenkinson, 72,1, UK
Jenkinson stunned Khattab in the first but was then outboxed and cut on the scalp after an accidental elbow in the fifith. It was a bad gash and Jenkinson was retired by his corner. 50-45 on all cards for Khattab after five.
8x3: Kakhaber Avetisian, 58,9, Geo W8-S Andreas Evensen, 58,9, Nor
78-74 and 77-75 for Avetisian and 78-74 for Evensen, who suffered a busted nose and his usual facial injuries and was unable to get untracked in a messy, hardfought fight. I felt Andreas nicked it but it went the other way.
6x3: Rashid Kassan, 60,8, Den KO 6 (1.37) Gogi Koshkelishvili, 62,5, Madrid, Spa
Koshkelishvili threw a left, missed, went down and was in strong pain. It was apparently an extra problematic shoulder injury and Gogi was taken to the hospital but could leave the same evening and return to Spain
8x3: David Price, 111,0, Liverpool, UK KO 3 0.33) Ondrey Pala, 105,0, Prague, Cze
Pala floored Price in the first or so it seemed but it was more an off balance thing but Ondrey went all out and Price had to smother him. Early in the third Price showed his class and floored Pala with one-two combinations and it was stopped without a count after the second knockdown. 19-18 Pala after two on all cards.
8x3: Andy Lee, 70,8, London, UK W8-M Franck Haroche Horta, 71,9, Lyon, Fra
77-76 twice and 76-76. Lee started well in this all southpaw clash but once Horta upped the pace in the third it got more and more onesided as the tricky and slick Frenchman outboxed Lee, who was cut, swollen and on shaky legs in the last. I had it 78-74 for Horta.
4x3: Igor Pylypenko, 90,1, Ukr TKO 1 (2.59) Peter Gram, 90,5, Esbjerg, Den
Gram was agressive and tough but then walked into a sneaky counter right and was hurt, backed into his own corner where he went down. He got up but was still wobbly and Pylypenko kept punching with Gram at the end defenceless against the ropes and it was stopped (a bit too late). Gram got a six week suspension from DPBF and announced his retirement.
4x3: Landry Kore, 74,8, Den W4-U Nikola Matic, 75,4, Cro
40-36 twice, 39-37. Prodebut for Kore, billed as from Copenhagen.
