Press release/ Boschiero out. Melnyk will challenge Patera for WBC Silver title

Devis Boschiero is positive to Covid-19 and out of the picture in the April 16 event promoted behind closed doors at Allianz Cloud in Milan by Opi Since 82-Matchroom-DAZN and streamed live by DAZN. Ukraine’s Vladislav Melnyk (13-3 with 8 KOs) will challenge Belgian Francesco Patera (23-3 with 8 KOs) for the vacant WBC Silver lightweight title on the 12 rounds distance.

“Ukrainians fighters are all tough – said Alessandro Cherchi of Opi Since 82 – and Vladislav Melnyk must be considered a good opponent for Francesco Patera. Melnyk fought in Ukaine, Belarus, Germany and Kazakhstan and is only 22 years old. It’s the first time that he fights for such a prestigiuos title and this will motivate him to give 100%. I’m confident that the fight will be exciting.”
