Andrea Scarpa

Boxer

Andrea Pio Scarpa (born 3 June 1987) is an Italian professional boxer. He held the WBC Silver light-welterweight title in 2016 and challenged twice for the European light-welterweight title in 2018 and 2019.

Scarpa made his professional debut on 9 April 2011, scoring a fourth-round technical knockout (TKO) victory over Cristian Spataru in Biella, Italy.

He went on to lose his next two fights by points decision (PTS) – against Carmine Tommasone in June and Vincenzo Finiello in July 2011[4] – before embarking on a six fight winning streak, after which he faced Nicola Cipolletta for the vacant Italian super-featherweight title. The bout took place on 27 July 2012 in Castel Volturno, Italy, with Scarpa capturing the Italian title via ninth-round knockout (KO). He scored a TKO win against Istvan Petrovics in a non-title fight in October before successfully defending his Italian title via TKO against Floriano Pagliara in January 2013.

In his next fight he moved up in weight to challenge Italian light-welterweight champion Renato De Donato on 21 June 2013 at the Centro Sportivo Crespi in Milan, Italy. Scarpa knocked Donato to the canvas in the seventh round. After making it back to his feet before the referee's count of ten, the champion was met with a flurry of punches to prompt the referee to call a halt to the contest, handing Scarpa the Italian light-welterweight title via seventh-round TKO.
