Flyweights Valery Yanchy and Karim Guerfi clash for the vacant EBU title in La CoruŮa in the north west of Spain. As to when there are two dates, July 7 or Aug 19. Luciano Planas promotes the event.
Yanchy, a tall technical skillful boxer, hails from Belorus but resides in Spain since a number of years and fought at a heavier weight for most of his career. He won the Belorus superbantam title in 2007 and lost a fight for the EBU bantam crown in 2008.
Guerfi fights out of Luxembourg and if the name Guerfi rings a bell, yes, indeed, his uncle is Kamel Guerfi, a fine bantamweight, who challenged Johnny Bredahl for the EBU title in 1999.
