Carlos Takam, Emanuele Blandamura Return on June 17 in Italy

On June 17, Salvatore Cherchi’s OPI Since 82 will bring boxing back to Saint-Vincent (Val d’Aosta region in Italy)  after 26 years. From 1983 to 1991 the small town on the spectacular Italian mountains hosted major boxing shows at the sports arena with such stars as Ray “Boom boom” Mancini, WBA World featherweight champion Eusebio Pedroza (defending against Jose Caba), IBF World super welterweight champion Gianfranco Rosi (versus Troy Waters and Roy Amundsen) and IBF World light heavyweight champion Charles Williams (against Mwehu Beya).

“I’m proud to bring boxing back to Saint-Vincent at the beautiful and renowed Saint-Vincent Resort & Casino – said Mr. Cherchi – which will give us a place adjusted in theater style with the chairs in front of the ring. It will be a great show.”

In the main event, European middleweight champion Emanuele Blandamura (26-2) will defend against former Italian middleweight king Alessandro Goddi (30-1-1). It will be the first defense for Blandamura who won the belt beating on points Matteo Signani last December 3 in Colleferro (Lazio region, Italy).

Takam should fight that undefeated Italian Modugno. I don't see him fighting anyone that good on an undercard bout. Too bad the Duhaupas fight didn't happen...

Damn, that's a hell of a card for some fights in Italy. Too bad they weren't a month later, I would've looked into going to them. Interested to see who Takam ends up fighting
