Tajbert Steps Away From Boschiero EBU Title Clash
by Per Ake Persson
Former WBC jr. lightweight champ Vitali Tajbert, 23-2, has relinquished the position as mandatory challenger for champ Devis Boschiero, 33-1-1, as he no longer can make the weight.
Boschiero-Tajbert was set for July 20.
Replacing Tajbert is Frenchman Guillaume Frenois, 30-0, and the EBU have set June 18 as deadline for purse bids.
Tajbert is still set to fight May 15 in St Petersburg, Russia.
