Promoter Rosanna Conti Cavini will stage a show on Friday night at the PalaMalè in Viterbo, Italy, headlined by an explosive super middleweight National title clash. Andrea Di Luisa (7-0, 7 KOs) and Roberto Cocco (10-4, 5 KOs) are the co-challengers for the vacant crown.
The 28-year-old Di Luisa is a real Italian top prospect with terrific power in both hands, but his opponent, former kick-boxing superstar Cocco, who fought Mads Larsen and Nikola Sjekloca in his 4-year long career, looks like a tough customer. He is renowned as a defensive wizard and has much more experience in top fights than his counterpart.
The undercard will feature some of the top fighters from Conti Cavini’s stable: light heavyweight Francesco Versaci (15-1, 5 KOs), featherweight Giuseppe Di Micco (5-0, 3 KOs), welterweight Marino Bucciarelli (6-2, 3 KOs) and former Ebu contender featherweight Luca Maggio (8-4, 1 KOs).
Di Luisa vs Cocco will be aired live on RAISPORT-PIU’ starting at 10:20pm local time.
