Marc Vidal (10-1-4) retained the EBU featherweight title Friday night in Castellbisbal in an all-Spanish matchup with a split decision over Sergio Blanco (23-4-1). The judges had it 116-111 and 114-113 for Vidal and 114-113 for Blanco after a very close fight. The 41-year old Blanco have since announced his retirement.

IN OTHER NEWS: Light-heavyweight prospect Mickey Ellison moved up to 3-1 on his record with a shutout points win over Curtis Gargano (0-39-1) on July 15th at the iconic Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

It was an improved and confident performance from Ellison to get back to winning ways after experiencing his first career loss last April at the hands of former Central Area titleholder Carl ‘Born 2 B’ Wild (15-26-5).

The 27-year-old’s signature punch – right uppercut – found its intended target consistently throughout the four-round light-heavyweight contest and worked to slow down and visibly hurt the 33-year-old Middleton opponent, who was relieved to hear the final bell sound.

He said post-fight, “Back to winning ways now. I felt more relaxed in there.

“Me and Alex [Matvienko] have been working on a few things, putting a few things that went wrong right. The loss has inspired me to come back stronger and want it more.

“He [Gargano] said that I hurt him in the last round and I was catching him and marking him up. Had some good, tough sparring with Darryl Williams [English super-middleweight champion] in training camp and it’s just helped me to come on.”

Its a shame Degale didn't enter this tournament, only person who looks like he could beat Smith. Skoglund is toast!
