The Marcel-Cerdan Sports Palace in Levallois will be used as a frame for a fight for a WBA world super welterweight belt (vacant) on Saturday, December 8th. Sébastien Acariès, the promoter of the event, announces it in preview. «Michel Soro (Editor's note: No. 1 worldwide in this category and this Federation) will face the American Greg Vendetti. This promises a good fight because Vendetti is a very good boxer of Irish origin from Boston. In other words, he's a fighter, a guy who never goes back. He never lost a fight before the limit. For Lyonnais Soro, this fight will be the chance of a lifetime, perhaps the last to win the Grail and the world belt.
Seven to eight bouts will be on the agenda of this meeting in Levallois. The Francilien Louis Toutin will dispute an international belt against an opponent that remains to be determined and should be known early next week, a step required to grow in the world hierarchy: "Louis is the great hope of boxing in France , guarantees Sébastien Acariès. This fight is a very important step for him who is preparing for several weeks in the United States. "
