Results: Sunday July 20th-Modugno retains Italian title

Boxing on a Sunday isn't unusual but it's rare for us to get an interesting bout of note. That didn't quite change this past weekend though their was a national title fight amongst the day's Heavyweight action.

The aforementioned national title fight took place in Italy as unbeaten Italian champion Matteo Modugno (15-0, 8) successfully defended his title courtesy of a 6th round DQ victory over the limited Gianluca Mandras (9-3, 5). In our eyes Modugno, who has now all but run out of national rivals, needs to give up his title an go chase the European title as defending this belt any longer is a waste of time. He's the Heavyweight king of Italy and doesn't need to prove it any further.

The only other Heavyweight bout saw Tibor Balogh (15-6-2, 11) take out novice Peter Palovic (1-3, 1) in 2 rounds.
