WBF world middleweight champion Kreshnik “The Eagle” Qato successfully defended his title in Dessau, Germany on October 24, scoring a wide unanimous decision over game and aggressive Italian challenger Fabio Liggieri.

Qato, a London-based Albanian, fought smart and counter-punched effectively throughout the entertaining bout, and landed by far the most telling blows while Liggieri kept coming forward and tried to take control. However, after twelve rounds there was no doubt about the rightful winner, and Qato’s hands were raised.

After loosing six of his first eleven fights, Qato is now undefeated in his last sixteen outings (21-6). The fight was promoted by SES Boxing and Fight Production and televised delayed in Albania on Ora News.

The plan is to keep Qato busy with two further defences over the next four or five months.
