William Scull wants to fight current champion Giovanni De Carolis.   If the interested parties reach the agreement, this interesting title defence will take place in Berlin next February 8th.  More details to come soon.

Giovanni had retained his belt last June 21 in Rome at the “Parco della Pace”.      Armenia’s Gevor Khoren Avetisyan gave the champion a tough fight, indeed.   But, eventually the champion was declared a winner by unanimous decision 116-112 (twice)  117-111 (a bit too wide).    Mr. Davide Buccioni promoted.
