WBC Silver World middleweight champion and #2 contender Domenico Spada (35-4, 18 KOs) met today at the EBU headquarters in Rome with the WBC World middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez. Spada said “as WBC Silver champion I hope Martinez will give me a chance to fight him. It will be an honour and a privilege.” Spada is promoted by Italian company OPI 2000 (Salvatore and Christian Cherchi).

Martinez was in town for an EBU purse bid for European super bantamweight titleholder Kiko Martinez’ mandatory defense against Carl Frampton. Maravilla Box Management won the purse bid and will promote the fight.
