Eddington shocks IBF #5 Fiordigiglio in two

In his first defense of the IBF International title, IBF #5 rated junior middleweight Orlando Fiordigiglio (31-3, 13 KOs) was overwhelmed and stopped by Sam Eggington (27-6, 16 KOs) in the second round on Thursday night at the Tuscany Hall in Florence, Italy.

Welterweight Luther Clay (12-1, 5 KOs) surprised previously unbeaten WBO #15 rated Dario Morello (15-1, 2 KOs) winning a ten round unanimous decision. Clay was credited with a knockdown in round five and round seven. Clay wins 98-90 on all three cards to claim the WBO global title.

Former WBC super featherweight world title challenger Devis Bosheiro (48-6-2, 22 KOs) won by eighth round TKO when previously unbeaten Ivan Tomas (9-1-1, 3 KOs) couldn’t continue due to a cut. Bosheiro in command all the way. He wins the IBF Intercontinental belt.

Olympian featherweight Carmine Tommasone (20-1, 5 KOs), one of three pros to compete in the Rio games, returned from his world title KO loss to Oscar Valdez with a six round unanimous decision over journeyman Brayan Mairena (10-14-1, 4 KOs). Scores were 60-54, 59-56, 58-56.

  • Sam Eggington is the most inconsistent boxer in the game today. In fact, he might be the least consistent boxer in the past 50 years. Sam, you have talent. Get it together.

  • back in the 60’s and perhaps even 70’s, Italian boxers were probably the best in Europe. Many had those Junior titles, (Welter middle and light) which were not so highly regarded probably outside of Europe. But still a lot of good world class boxers. Not any more. Though they are good in Olympics, but even the guy who won the gold in 2008 did not pursue a pro career. I guess really not any good promoters as they may have had in the 60’s might be the reason. Now germany which seemed to be the boxing capital in the early 2000’s has fallen on hard times.
