Sky Sports Fight Night
23:00 until 01:00
European junior middleweight title
At Sheffield, England
Ryan Rhodes vs. Luca Messi, 12 rounds

Ryan Rhodes returns to action on Today night in his home town of Sheffield, against the "Bergamo Bomber", Luca Messi. How the Italian wound up using his hands rather than his feet for a living with a name like that beggars belief, however, the fighter with a priest for a cornerman (his brother Alessandro) will be looking to go one better than his footballing namesake Lionel, by getting his hands on some European silverware this weekend.

Messi, 36-7 (12), is on a decent looking run since being stopped on Italian soil in his previous tilt at winning European honours, by compatriot Michele Piccirillo in 2006. His six straight wins since that setback, would suggest a bit of a rebirth on paper, however, closer inspection reveals much about the level of opponent he’s been in with. With a combined record of 25-80-7 at the time they faced off with the former Italian champion, we can safely assume that he’s been eased back into winning ways rather gently to say the least.
