By Per Ake Persson

Micallef Promotions in Malta will stage the first sanctioned professional boxing event ever on this tiny Meditterranean island in late October. The show will feature eight fights and if all goes to plan they will feature at least four local fighters. The main fights, a female fight for a WIBA world title and a contest for the WBF I/C bauble, will have the involvement of imported talents. There´s been professional boxing in Malta before but none with a sanctioning body behind. The newly formed Malta Boxing Commission is a full member of the EBU. The MBC is involved in the promotion as well which may not be what it should be but then again this is quite common in boxing in Europe.
 
With Lukas Konecny, the reigning EBU king, heading for a world title shot against WBO 154-pound king Sergei Dzinziruk - the EBU title will be declared vacant. Belorus boxer Siarhei Rabchenka is the mandatory challenger for Konecny, and he could be fighting either British champ Prince Aaron or Frenchman Cedric Vitu.
 
EBU jr. lightweight champ Ermano Fegatelli will defend the title against local man Karim Chakim on October 7 in Wasquehal. Lightweight Daoua Sow, silver medalist in the 08 Olympics, is featured on the undercard
