Anthony Yigit vs. Lenny Daws in Play For EBU Title Clash

By Per Ake Persson

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Spanish super lightweight Ruben Nieto (18-1) has relinquished the EBU title he won by beating Lenny Daws in December of last year. A rematch was ordered but never got off the ground and Nieto defended the title in July against Nicolas Gonzales in an all Spanish matchup. Next up for Nieto is a fight against Venezuelan Ernesto Espana October 15 at a site to be announced in Spain with the IBF International title at stake.

As for who Lenny Daws, still the official challenger, he will now have to face Anthony Yigit (18-0-1, 7KOs), who earlier today was appointed as the official co-challenger for the title. The EBU have set September 28 as deadline for agreements or purse bids.

Sweden's Yigit came in the picture because both # 1 and 2 in the ratings, Viktor Postol and Kirll Relikh, are not available.

IN OTHER NEWS - Philadelphia, PA - Welterweight contender, Thomas "Cornflake" LaManna (21-1, 9 KOs) of Millville, New Jersey held a media workout on Monday at the Joe Hand Boxing Gym in advance of his USBA Welterweight title bout against Dusty Hernandez-Harrison  (29-0-1, 16 KO's) of Washington, D.C that will take place on Thursday night at the 2300 Arena and broadcast LIVE on CBS Sports Network

Thomas LaManna Quotes:  "I feel great.  I am excited and I am anxious. I can not let let Dusty get in a groove.  That's what I remember from sparring is that if you give him a groove, he is a little bit hard to handle, other that that you can't give him confidence."

"I have ten rounds to work.  I always say that the last two rounds are mental .  I am in great shape to go ten rounds"

"Me and Dusty both have big fan bases and I will be able to block out the crowd"

"I don't get nervous.  Especially this fight because I have been in the ring with him before.  There is nothing that he can do in my eyes that I would be worried about."

"The gameplan is to just to win.  Make the proper adjustments when I need to. I am more confident after this camp then I have ever been. This fight means everything to me.  It's now or never as it will change my career and it will show where I am in boxing."
