Italian light welterweight star Brunet Zamora (19-0, 8 KOs) won a unanimous decision over French warrior Christophe De Busillet (23-8-2, 11 KOs) Friday night at The Pala Bianchini in Latina, Italy. With the win the Cuban born Zamora defended his WBA Intecontinental Title at 140lbs for the third time. It was not a great fight, much too tactical with both fighters being careful and many of the rounds following a similar pattern. Zamora used his jab beautifully throughout the fight and was aggressor in the last four rounds which proved to be enough for the three judges to award the Italian fighter. The three judges, Jean-Francois Toupin, Pierluigi Poppi and Gudjon Vilhelm scored the bout 116-114, 115-113 and an incredible 119-110 for the ‘Italian Salsero.’ (Fightnews had it 116-113 for Zamora.)
Topping the undercard of a show staged by Mario Loreni and local stable Boxe Parisi, undefeated welterweight EBU-EU titlist Leonard Bundu (20-0-1, 6 KOs) showed his aggressive style and scored via an seven round technical decision win over dangerous warrior Ronny McField (13-4-2, 10 KOs) of Nicaragua. The bout was stopped in the seven round due to a cut suffered by the 35-year-old Bundu in round two from an unintentional headbutt. After the ringside doctor checked the dangerous cut, referee stopped the action. Bundu was up on all cards against the South American fighter at the time of the stoppage.
