Main event results from Friday's action in Europe:

Italian Matteo Signani, age 43, regained the EBU middleweight title as he stopped defending champion Anderson Prestot from France in the seventh round in Savignano sul Rubicone, 

Signani (32-7-3) made a slow start but gradually upped the pace and floored and stopped Prestot (25-3) in what was quite an upset - at least with the bookmakers.

Prestot won their first fight on a technical decision but an immediate rematch was ordered by the EBU as there were no doping tests conducted and Opi since 82 won the purse bids.

On the undercard super bantamweight Vincenzo La Femina (12-0, 6 KOs) decisioned Venezuelan Hector Betancourt (14-6, 11 KOs) over 10 rounds, middleweight prospect Giovanni Sarchioto (6-0, 6 KOs) won by TKO in the seventh round against tough Spanish Jose Manuel Lopez Clavero (16-20-1, 5 KOs) and super bantamweight Diletta Cipollone won her pro debut against Serbian Marijana Dasovic.


Czech welterweight Lukas Dekys (8-0) won the vacant International Polish title in Pulway as he outscored Michal Lesniak (16-2-1) in a ten rounder. It was scored 97-92 twice and 98-91. Dekys can box very well but lacks punch.


Professional boxing returned to Savonlinna in Eastern Finland and welterweight Oskari Metz (17-1) scored his second win since getting stopped by then EBU champ David Avanesyan in March as he outscored tough Serbian veteran Milan Delic (13-37) in a six-rounder.

Jose Antonio Sanchez Romero (16-0-1) made his official debut at featherweight and beat Milan Savic (4-49-3) in another six-rounder.
