EBU junior middleweight champion Sergey Rabchenko (21-0, 16KOs) will defend the title against mandatory challenger Cedric "Titi" Vitu (35-1, 15KOs) on November 24 in Manchester. The fight will go ahead on the undercard to Ricky Hatton´s anticipated comeback.
The purse bids that were scheduled for Thursday in Rome were thus cancelled. Rabchenko is already in Manchester and is training in the Hatton Gym alongside with Ricky Hatton, who also trains Sergey.
