Jacob-Boschiero Rematch is Ordered By The EBU
By Per Ake Persson
The EBU have ordered a rematch between its newly crowned super featherweight champ Romain Jacob (21-0) and Devis Boschiero (34-2-1). Jacob won their fight February 14 in Calais (France) with an upset decision over the highly regarded Italian. It was a very close fight and all reports indicate it could have gone either way but Jacob prevailed on scores of 115-113 and 115-114 with a third vote for Boschiero at 115-114. Jacob must first however defend the title against mandatory challenger Ermanno Fegatilli (28-5) from Belgium and the EBU have set April 11 as date for purse bids.
