Orlando Fiordigiglio puts his IBF International super-welterweight title on the line when he faces Sam Eggington at the Tuscany Hall in Florence, Italy, on Thursday, Sept. 19, on DAZN.
Fiordigiglio (31-2, 13 KOs) picked up the IBF title with a split-decision win over Stephen Danyo in April. Eggington (26-6, 15 KOs) is a former European welterweight champion, and he has victories in his last two bouts, over Jordan Grannum and Lewis van Poetsch, after losing to Liam Smith in March.
Also fighting on the card is Devis ‘Boom Boom’ Boschiero (47-6-2, 12 KOs), a former European super-featherweight champion, who takes on Barcelona’s Ivan Tomas (9-0-1, 3 KOs) for the vacant IBF International super-featherweight title. And unbeaten welterweight Dario Morello (15-0, 2 KOs) defends his WBO Global welterweight title for the first time against England’s Luther Clay (11-1, 5 KOs).
“It’s a pleasure to be returning to the venue that saw the launch of the historic joint venture between Matchroom Boxing Italy, OPI Since 82 and DAZN back in November 2018,” Matchroom Boxing Italy's Ross Garritty said in a press release. “Our first five events in Florence, Milan and Rome have been overwhelmingly successful, and Florence fight fans are in store for another exciting night of title action at Tuscany Hall on Sept. 19.”
Christian Cherchi of OPI Since 82 said, “It is always nice to return to Florence after the success of our first events in the city. We have an explosive main event in Orlando Fiordigiglio vs. Sam Eggington for the IBF International super-welterweight title and exciting title fights for Devis Boschiero and Dario Morello. Mohammed Obbadi is never in a dull fight; Roma super-lightweight prospect Sebastian Mendizabal steps up again and Carmine Tommasone returns after his WBO featherweight world title challenge against Oscar Valdez".
