OPI 2000, represented by Salvatore Cherchi, won the purse bids yesterday in Rome for EBU super featherweight champion Romain Jacob´s defense of the title against Devis Boschiero with a bid for 84,717 Euro.
ABC Calaisien, represented by Thierry Jacob, bid 84,121 Euro.
Date and site is to be announced.
Jacob, 22-0, beat Boschiero, 34-2-1, on a close, split decision at home in Calais (France) earlier this year and while the rematch isn´t as hot as Froch vs. Groves II - it is close.
