Luca Rigoldi (22-1-2, 8 KOs) defends his European super-bantamweight title against Gamal Yafai (17-1, 10 KOs), who has bounced back with three straight wins after his first career loss to former world title challenger Gavin McDonnell.

Announcing the fights, Matchroom head Eddie Hearn said: “This is a stacked night of title action and I’m pleased to end a difficult and challenging year out in Italy on a high. Francesco Patera has been in red-hot form since he claimed the European lightweight crown against Lewis Ritson back in 2018 and he’ll be knocking on the door for a world title shot in the brilliant lightweight division should he get past Boschiero.
"Gamal Yafai gets his European title shot but faces a tough task against reigning champion Luca Rigoldi. It’s great to see our recent signings Maiva Hamadouche and Sandor Martin out so soon, there’s some huge fights out there for the both of them in 2021 if they win on December 17. Don’t miss any of the action on DAZN.”
