(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 23 – The match valid for the Italian superlightweight title between the holder Arblin Kabal, 27, of Italian nationality (lives in Bologna and is part of Boxe leTorri) will take place on Saturday in the ring of PalaBaldinelli in Osimo ) and Albanian origins, and the challenger Charly Metonyekpon, 26 years old with 9 matches under his belt and still unbeaten. In the meeting organized by the Boxing Buccioni Team of Rome with the patronage of Fpi Marche, Metonyekpon will also play the part of the home boxer, since he is from Osimo (the family comes from Benin instead) and trains under the guidance of his teachers Andrea Gabbanelli and Daniele Marra in the Boxing Club gym in Castelfidardo.
The match for the challenger does not promise easy, despite the support of the public: Kabal boasts 16 professional matches, with 13 won, 2 defeats and a draw, and has held the tricolor belt for three years, a period during which he beat all his opponents: Hassan Nourdine in October 2019, Luciano Randazzo in April 2021 and Daniele Zagatti a couple of months ago. In particular, the Marche boxer will have to pay close attention to the insidious left hooks that the reigning champion usually carries with power and precision.
