Tatli Defends Against Fana on December 7 in Espoo
By Per Ake Persson
WBA I/C lightweight champ Edis Tatli, 21-0, will defend the title against South African former double world champ Mzonke Fana, 32-6, December 7 in Espoo (Finland). Fana replaces Argentinian Matias Ezequiel Gomez, who wasn´t approved by the WBA as he has been fighting exclusively for Comision Mundial de Pugilismo and not for Federacion Argentina de Boxe. Fana, age 40, is probably not as good as he once was but still represents a tough challenge for the undefeated Finn.
