Belfast’s McCarthy fights Turchi tonight
This is an intriguing match for Fabio Turchi’s WBC international cruiserweight title. Promoters OPI and Matchroom Italy have high hopes for Turchi.
This new Italian boxing vehicle needs a figurehead and with Andrea Scarpa, Devis Boschiero and Emanuele Blandamura all losing in big fights on these shows a lot now depends on Turchi. So he’s under a bit of pressure and certainly was back at the end of November on the inaugural Matchroom Italy show where he took to the ring following those defeats for Boschiero and Scarpa.

He really had to win against Tony Conquest or the whole show would have been a disaster from an Italian standpoint. And he got the win to successfully defend his WBC International Silver title before upgrading to the WBC International in his last fight against Sami Enbom.
