Abis wins EU belt

Italian Luciano Abis (29-1-1, 13 KOs) won the vacant European Union welterweight title against Belgian Kobe Vandekerkove (18-8-2, 6 KOs) on Saturday in Quartu S. Elena in the beautiful island of Sardegna, Italy. Abis won by technical decision in round eight after the referee stopped the contest because Abis was not able to see from his swollen left eye (head butt from Vandekerkove in round two).

On the undercard, 22-year-old and the best Italian prospect at lightweight Luca Giacon (12-0, 12 KOs) stopped Nicaraguan Ronny McField (13-6-2, 10 KOs) in round three. For McField, it was the first loss inside the limit. Super lightweight Michele Di Rocco (28-1-1, 12 KOs) decisioned in six rounds Irish toughguy Peter McDonagh (15-17, 2 KOs).

OPI 2000 (Salvatore and Christian Cherchi) promoted the show with Dahlia TV televising the card live in Italy.
