Italian jr. middleweight Adriano Cardarello (9-0, 2 KOs) continued his impressive recent progress and retained his IBF-Youth title at 154 lbs last Friday night at the Sports Hall in Palestrina, Italy.
Cardarello outscored Andrei Salakhutdzinau (8-1, 1 KO) of Belarus over ten exciting rounds, with the final scoresheets being 97-93 and 96-94 twice. Salakhutdzinau proved every bit as tough but Cardarello’s workrate and superior boxing skills were evident over the ten rounds.
Also in action in front of a full packed arena, super middleweight hitter Mouhamed Ali Ndiaye (15-1, 9 KOs) showed his punching power and stopped decent Frenchman Mounir Sahli (8-14, 5 KOs) in three entertaining and cruel rounds. Davide Buccioni promoted.
