Boschiero vs. Tajbert Purse Bid Won By OPI 2000

By Per Ake Persson

Italian promoters OPI 2000 were the only bidders at the purse bids held today in Rome for EBU super featherweight champion Devis Boschiero´s defense against Vitali Tajbert.
 
OPI 2000 bid 33.717.00 Euro for the right to stage the fight with date and site to be announced.
 
Tajbert, 23-2, is lined up to fight in St Petersburg May 15 but may not be able to go through with that fight now. Tajbert, based in Stuttgart turned pro with Universum in 05,  held the WBC title 09-10 but lost to Takahiro Ao. Since then fights have been far and few inbetween due to legal problems, the downfall of Universum and a bad hand injury
 
Boschiero, 33-1-1, challenged Ao in November of 2011 in a quest to win the WBC title but lost a split decision and rebounded in 2012 by winning the EBU title.
 
Boschiero vs Tajbert is an exellent matchup, but will it happen? It appears it all depends on Tajbert and his plans.
