WBC International Featherweight Silver championship (title vacant)
Massa Carrara (Italy) February 17th 2023
Davide Tassi (Italy) W KO 10 José Antonio Sanchez (Spain – based in Finland)
Massa Carrara (a nice place in Tuscany) celebrated an unforgettable day with his citizen Davide Tassi (56.850) who marked a great win in the last bout of the night, but also in the last round. Jose Antonio Romero Sanchez (56.700) proved to be a constant and malicious attacker. The former Italian featherweight champion used his outstanding ring mobility to become a very difficult target to hit. The first two rounds highlighted how dangerous Romero could be. The Spanish right hand could have been the curse of southpaw Tassi, but not that night. In the fourth round the Italian left hand started doing damage. In the penultimate round Tassi landed a series of three shots with a straight left that extinguishes Romero’s ambitions. The tenth round to be framed, indeed. Tassi pushed Romero on the ropes , with the Spaniard trying to regain the center of the ring where he was hit again, barely surviving a knockdown. Immediately after, Tassi landed a terrible left hook to score the final KO and win the vacant Wbc International Silver at 126 lbs to his joy. At the end of round eight the Italian fighter was leading by two points. He won round nine , before he KO’d Romero in the last round. The show in Massa was promoted by Mr Mario Loreni.
