WBO #15 Zoltan Kovacs fights against Nakathila in April

Exciting super featherweight contender Jeremiah Nakathila is scheduled to get one step closer to his desired world title fight when he makes his return to the ring on April 20th in his native Windhoek, Namibia.

The powerful Namibian, who is currently rated No. 3 by the WBO at 130 pounds, will prepare to his sixth straight title bout under the flagship of the World Boxing Organization, though after the Africa strap this time, he is challenging the newly formed Global belt.

Nakathila’s (17-1, 13 KOs) opponent on his April return will be WBO No. 15 rated contender Zoltan Kovacs. The Hungarian Kovacs (23-5-1, 7 KOs) won the WBO European belt in 2016 and had one defense before he abandoned the title. The 26-year-old had a rocky start in the pro games as he went 3-4 in his first seven bouts but was able to change things around and he has been in a 20-1-1 run recently. Kovacs was last in action in December when he won a grueling 8-round non-title matchup against Georgian Levani Tsiklauri by decision.

Euro News: Kis-Baranyi awaited rematch, Cavicchi Passes, Tatli Eyes World Title, More

Lightheavies Richard Baranyi, 19-3, and Mate Kis, 11-0-2, headline Felix-Promotion´s show in Budapest on September 14 in a much awaited rematch. Kis won the first fight last year on a eighth round knockout and thus won the national title.

On the undercard super welter Balazs Bacskai, super middle Renato Egedi, welterweight Flavius Biea and cruiser Cezar Juratoni will appear. The show is televised live by M 4 in Hungary and Digi TV in Romania.

Cruiserweight Imre Szello is off the bill and he surrounded by rumors of participation in the WBSS cruiserweight tournament but nothing is confirmed yet.

Former EBU and Italian heavyweight champion Franco Cavicchi passed away a few days ago at the age of 90. Cavicchi turned pro in 1952 in what was a golden era for Italian boxing and won the EBU title in Bologna in front of a crowd of 60,000 spectators by knocking out Heinz Neuhaus.

He lost the title by knockout to the future heavyweight champion of the world Ingemar Johansson but fought on after that and took on the likes of Karl Mildenberger, Willie Pastrano and Joe Bygraves and compiled a record of 71-14-4. Italian press describes him as a careful man in and out of the ring and he took care of his ring earnings well.

Edis Tatli has relinquished the EBU lightweight title and will not take on mandatory challenger Marvin Petit or as British sources have had it Lewis Ritson. Instead it appears that Tatli will go for a world title. Edis is ranked # 4 by the IBF and with Mikey Garcia reportedly moving up in weight we might see Tatli against IBF # 1 Richard Commey. The second spot is vacant while Russian Isa Chaniev is # 3.
