WBO European Light Middleweight Champion (2011)
12th May 2012 - UD defeat to Zaurbek Basyangurov
22-year-old Michel Soro is a light middleweight with World title potential. The 18 - 1 fighter, from the Rhone region of France, won the vacant EBU Light Middleweight Championship in July 2011.
At his young age, and still boxing part-time, an 18 - 1 record is an impressive though his most recent bout, live on BoxNation, saw him lose a challenge for Zaurbek Baysangurov's IBO and WBO World Light Middleweight Championships.
