French super bantamweight Jeremy Parodi, 33-1-1, defends the IBF International title against Japanese challenger Kohei Oba, 31-2-1, on October 5 in Pouzin, France. Parodi won the title last year with a points win over Jose Luis Graterol and outscored Franklin Teran last time out.
In the chief support, French heavyweight champ Newfel Outah, 9-0, defends the title against Mickael Vieira, 11-2-1. Outah won a bronze in the 08 Olympics but only fought once last year and need to be a lot busier if he is to make it anywhere.
