Derry Mathews vs. Emiliano Marsili
Vacant IBO Lightweight Title
Liverpool, UK— BECOMING a two weight world champion is a feat that eludes many fighters. Derry Mathews, 28, can achieve just that when he enters the ring in his native Liverpool next month to challenge for the vacant IBO lightweight strap.
It was 2006 when Mathews first secured a globally recognised title, beating Stephen Foster- 21-0-1 at the time- to claim the WBU featherweight title.
