19-year-old Lucas Migotti, 8-1 (4), gets a chance to show that he is a man for the future, when he fights for his first title, the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Welterweight, on June 8 in Aimargues, France.

The teenager from nearby Montpellier will face reigning Belgian national champion Anthony Loffet, 12-3 (2), who at twenty-six and with several championship fights on his resume is significantly more experienced.

Migotti turned professional in March of 2023, and went the usual route of building his record while learning his trade against somewhat underwhelming opposition.

But he had just scored his best victory over Argentinian journeyman Sergio Javier Escobar last December, when he shockingly lost by first round stoppage to Georgian Goga Kavtaradze in February.

He rebounded with a first round knockout of another Georgian, Tornika Surmava, in April, and now he is aiming to get his career firmly back on track by winning the WBF title against by far his most accomplished opponent to date.

Anthony Loffet won the Belgian Welterweight title with a decision over previously undefeated Elias El Hadj Messoud this past January.

Like Migotti he suffered a surprising defeat in February when Bosnian Ivan Blazevic edged him by split decision, but he also came back with a win in April to set up the big opportunity in France on June 8.

The fight will be part of a big show promoted by Boxing Club Montpellierain at the Arenes DŽAimargues.
