Fabio Turchi Will Now Face Sami Enbom in Florence, Italy

By Per Ake Persson

Italian cruiserweight Fabio Turchi, 16-0, will now face Finn Sami Enbom, 18-2, on April 26 in Florence, Italy.

Enbom replace Frenchman Jean Jacques Oliver. At stake is the WBC International Silver title.

Enbom was all set to fight May 4 in Trondheim (Norwy) against Simen Nysaether but that show got cancelled.


Swedish heavyweight Attila Levin (35-4) returned for one fight only and outscored Greek Marios Kollias (5-2-1) over four rounds last night on a mixed MMA / boxing show in Gothenburg. Levin said afterwards this was his last fight and that he had come back just to get a win in his final fight. Levin´s last fight prior to this was a TKO loss to Robert Helenius in 2010.

Attila "the Hun" was for many years based in Florida and was a fringe contender and beat the likes of Ray Austin, Fernely Feliz and Ross Puritty but lost to Jeremy Williams in 2004 in what was a crossroads fight. A loss to Nikolai Valuev in 2005 led to a brief retirement but he returned in 2007 in an on and off comeback that ended in 2010.

Light heavies Hakim Zoulikha (26-10) and Sergey Demchenko (21-14-1) clash for the vacant EU title June 22 in Milan. Italy, on a OPI since 82 promotion.

The previous man to hold this title was Orial Kolaj, who relinquished it for a fight for the EBU title against Dominic Boesel, and then pulled out due to injury after the weighin was done the day before the fight and thus all was lost.

French heavyweight Nicolas Wamba made his prod ebut last night in Agde and stopped Aleksander Lepsveridze (3-5-1) in the second round. If the name Wamba rings a bell yes, this is the son of former WBC cruiserweight king Anaclet Wamba. The 31-year old Nicolas has now turned to boxing after a fine career in martial arts.

In the headliner on this show middleweight Diego Natchoo (18-1-4) retained the French title with a unanimous decision over veteran Patrick Momene Mokamba (7-26-4).

hope there will be some fights from italy with more importance. More boxing is always better, but the boxing level of those cards are comparable with Warrens worst cards. Not sure what their prospects are offering, but according to boxrec…
