Last night in Les Mureaux, France, the local club put up a fantastic job to promote 2 WBC Mediterranean titles for French boxers.
Local star Ali Hallab won the vacant WBC Mediterranean superbantamweight title dominating Spaniard Angel Lorente from start till final bell to win his first international title. Hallab won the fast paced encounter by scores of 120-108, 119-111 and a generous 118-110 to the brave but outboxed challenger. Lorente was almost stopped in rounds 6 and 7 but survived and Hallab took a break when tired in rounds 10 and 11.
Hallab improves to 16-0-1(9) while Lorente suffers his 3rd defeat in a row (all title fights) for an overall record of 5-5-1(3)
On the same card Redouane Asloum, brother of Brahim, won the vacant WBC Mediterranean flyweight title stopping Italian challenger Gianpietro Marceddu inside 5 rounds. Asloum, now 11-1-1(4) started well winning easily the first 2 rounds but the visitor closely won the 3rd round. Marceddu started also well the 4th but Asloum took soon over again to win the 4th. Soon after the start of the 5th Marceddu seemed to make signs to his corner and complained about troubles with the sight in his left eye. His corner wisely threw in the towel. Marceddu is now 7-2-0(2).
WBC Mediterranean Chariman and WBC Vice President Houicine Houichi supervised both titlefights.
