Team Hatton believe Rabchenko on verge of world title shot


Hatton Promotions international matchmaker Philippe Fondu believes Sergey Rabchenko’s European light-middleweight title defence against Emanuele Della Rosa will provide the perfect springboard to a world title shot.

Rabchenko is ranked as the number one contender to Saul Alvarez’s WBC crown, while Italy’s Della Rosa occupies the same sanctioning body’s number four spot.

The European Boxing Union (EBU) has called for purse bids to be opened on Tuesday June 18 and Hatton Promotions, if successful in the process, hope to get Rabchenko home advantage.

Due to both boxers having such high rankings, Fondu feels victory for his man will pave the way for a shot on the world stage.

“A good win of Rabchenko against Della Rosa should certainly establish Sergey as the leading contender in the light-middleweight division,” he said.

“A world title fight opportunity would then become a reality and shouldn’t be far away.”
