Kerman Lejarraga To Face Michele Di Rocco Before Gavin Bout

By Per Ake Persson

As previously reported on, reigning EBU welterweight champ Kerman Lejarraga (25-0) will defend the title November 17 in Bilbao against Frankie Gavin.

However, before that, August 4 in Marbella, Lejarraga is in against Italian veteran Michele Di Rocco (41-3-1) in a non-title ten-rounder also made at welterweight.

Di Rocco has lost two of his last three but it has been against the likes of Ricky Burns and Eduard Troyanovsky.


Newly crowned EBU super middleweight champion Robin Krasniqi (48-5) makes a voluntary defence of the title on October 27 with SES promoting. Site and opponent is to be announced.


Former EU super welterweights champ Maxime Beaussire (26-1-1) takes on Cedric Paté (12-0-2) in non-title eight-rounder on July 26 at the Casino Barriere in Deauville (France): Beaussire relinquished the title earlier this year.

In the co-feature Olympic Gold medalist (female, lightweight), Estelle Mosely will make her pro debut.

Heavyweight Pezhman Seifkhani (9-0) goes for the RBO title November 10 in Orebro (Sweden). In the co-feature female super lightweight Patricia Berghult (10-0) goes for the same title. Opponents for both are to be announced.
