A fight for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Super Featherweight title will headline when Boxe Lastra A Signa and Noble Art Boxing Promotion presents WASB XX on July 20 in Lastra A Signa, Italy.


Home-town hero, and former Italian champion, Catalin Ionescu (14-3-1, 5 KOs) is slated to face Colombian Diego Lagos (11-3, 5 KOs) in what should be a spectacular night of boxing at the Stadio Di Lastra A Signa.

Marble Man” Ionescu, born in Romania, made his professional debut in 2017, and was 12-2-1 when he made his breakthrough in 2022 by beating Nicola Henchiri for the Italian national title.

That victory landed him a shot at the European title in May of 2023, where he lost a close decision to undefeated Juanfe Gomez in Spain.


Last October he returned with a routine victory, and he is now ready for another championship opportunity against the tough Lagos.

Diego Lagos lost his pro debut in 2018, but then won his next eleven fights before he had to retire injured after five rounds against Spaniard Salvador Jimenez last April.

Before that he had done well enough to earn another big fight, as he took on former European champion Faroukh Kourbanov on June 22, acquitting himself well before losing on points in Belgium.

A big turn-out is expected, and local boxing fans can look forward to a fight between two hungry fighters who are eager to show that they have much more to give.
