Saturday April 14 will be a busy day for the World Boxing Federation (WBF) in France, as three shows are headlined by fights involving WBF titles.

The cities of Rumilly, Dieppe and Henin-Beaumont will all host WBF championship boxing.

In Rumilly, local man Mehdi Madani, 14-8-1 (0), is set to face 29-year-old Georgian Giorgi Gogebashvili, 12-7-2 (2), for the vacant WBF Eurasia Middleweight title.

Having fought his whole career at Super Middleweight, Madani (31) has trimmed down a division in an effort to win his first title after eight years in the paid ranks.

Approximately 700 kilometres north, the vacant WBF Eurasia Super Middleweight title will be up for grabs in Dieppe when Romain Tilliot, 9-10 (1), squares off with Novak Radulovic, 7-1-1 (3), from Serbia.

Tilliot (30) will be looking to break away from the journeyman-path his career has taken in recent years, but Radulovic, still only twenty-two years old, is full of ambition and have every intention of spoiling that plan.

Finally, WBF Womens Intercontinental titlist Oshin Derieuw, 7-0 (4), is going for the vacant WBF World Light Welterweight title in her home-town of Henin-Beaumont, when she takes on Dominican Lina Tejada, 11-4 (9).

Derieuw (30) will be in with her biggest test to date in the five years younger Tejada, who is coming off a game challenge for no less than four world titles in her most recent outing.
