Marsili Ready For EBU Title Defense Against Manno
By Per Ake Persson
EBU lightweight champ Emiliano Marsili (28-0-1) will defend the title, as previously reported, on June 7 in Tolfa (Italy) but it won´t be against Frenchman Anthony Mezaache, who pulled last week due to illness. Instead Marsili will now take on Benoit Manno (14-1) in what is the headliner of this OPI 2000 promotion. Manno is ranked # 9 by the EBU at the super featherweight limit.
