Junior Fa Feels Ready For Parker, Giovanni De Carolis Wins Big

By Per Ake Persson

Former WBA "regular"  super middleweight champion Giovanni De Carolis, 27-9-1, put his career back on track last night (Dec 14) in Rome with a close but unanimous decision over hard-punching Romanian based in Italy Dragan Lepei, 16-2-2.

De Carolis won the vacant WBC Int´ title on scores of  116-111, 115-112 and 115-113.

In Budapest, Hungary last night (Dec 14) former Hungarian and WBO super featherweight champ Zoltan Kovacs, 23-5-1, outscored always tough Georgian Levani Tsiklauri, 11-6-1, over eight.

In the co-features super welterweight Balazs Bacskai, 9-0, knocked out Belgian Islami Teffahi, 21-6-1, in the third and middleweight Norbert Harcsa, 11-1, outscored Dutchman Melwin Wassing, 6-4-5, over six. Cruiserweight Jozsef Darmos, 12-2-3, beat on Paata Aduashvili, 19-26-3, on points over six.

Promoter Felix Racz had a full house on hand and the show was televised by M4 in Hungary.


Horncastle Arena, Christchurch - New Zealand heavyweight contender Junior Fa 16-0 (9 KO’s) destroys Rogelio Rossi 20-7 ( 13 KO’s) dropping him twice in the first round. The bout was the main support fight to Parker vs Flores.

The DiBella Entertainment promoted fighter remains undefeated and looks to move his WBO top 10 ranking toward an elimination bout.

Junior Fa stated: “I’d like to thank Christchurch for coming out to watch the fights, I’m really hungry to put everything into the ring, I can’t wait for my next fight.”

When asked would he be interested in fighting compatriot and former WBO world champion Joseph Parker next Junior replied: “I’ll leave that up to my promoter Lou DiBella and my manager Mark Keddell but I’m ready to fight Joseph whenever he’s ready!”

In what would be most likely the biggest boxing event seen in New Zealand since David Tua vs Shane Cameron, Parker vs Fa would also attract worldwide attention.

[QUOTE=pillowfists98;19357264]He just fought two top ten guys in a row, give him a break. And I don't think Fa would do much better than Flores. I don't see anything special in Junior Fa.[/QUOTE] I actually like Fa. But... "something special"…

The H/W scene is massive in the UK right now & that's where Fa should be, challenging Commonwealth champion Joe Joyce!
