ANDHe left-handed from Elche Juan Flix Gmez (10-0, 2 KO) looking for his first international title tonight at the Palahockey in the Italian town of Reggio nell’Emilia.

Dispute the European Union super featherweight title against the local champion Nicola Henchiri (10-4-2, 0 KO), which makes the first defense.

The European Union belt is an intermediate title that places the winner at number five on the European lists, which greatly increases the options for contesting the European championship, the coveted trophy.

Juanfe Gmez became champion of Spain super featherweight by defeating the Basque Diego Valtierra in the eighth round last April.

The good technique of the 24-year-old Spaniard is his best asset, but the 31-year-old Italian has more experience, better rivals in his palm, and most importantly, he fights at home and has the support of the public.
