Leavander Johnson (33-4-2, 25 KOs) and Stefano Zoff (43-9-2, 17 KOs), will battle for the vacant IBF Lightweight title on Friday night June 17th at the Palalido Dello Sport in Milano, Italy. Zoff hails from Monfalcone, Italia, so he will be fighting on his home turf, while Johnson travels to Italy from Atlantic City. The two fight veterans have combined for 76 victories and 42 knockouts during their careers. The title became vacant when Julio Diaz cancelled a title defense in order to take a big money bout against WBC champ Jose Luis Castillo. That bout was won by Castillo.
