Felix Lora, a dangerous journeyman from Dominican Republic but now based in Barcelona, Spain, will defend the WBA I/C lightweight title March 9 in Espoo, Finland, against Edis Tatli, 19-0.
A pro since 2003 Lora has racked a number of upset wins and the losses are on the road against tough opponents. He won the title with an upset win over the previously undefeated Massimiliano Ballisai. Tatli, a good boxer but not a puncher, just relinquished the EU title and is in tough in this matchup.
Cruiserweight Juho Haapoja is featured in the semifinal on this P 3 Boxing promotion.
