French promoters EuroProm were the sole bidders at the purse bids today in Rome for Thomas Masson´s defense of the EBU flyweight title against former champ Kevin Satchell. EuroProm bid 20,200 Euro. Date and site is to be announced.
Masson-Satchell goes back to the fall of 2014 when Satchell (14-0) held the EBU title and Masson (14-3-1) was mandatory challenger.
For one reason or another the fight always fell through until Satchell was finally stripped of the belt. Masson then beat Valery Yanchy to win the vacant title and this is his first defence.
Satchell was last in action in March, winning by way of a first round knockout over Walter Rojas. Masson stopped Nugzar Chavchavadze in three rounds in April and then came back last month to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Silvio Olteanu.
