Winning the EBU Super Featherweight Championship
On 26 February 2011 Fegatilli won the EBU Super Featherweight Title by beating Stephen Foster Jr., 30, in the Premier Suite at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium, England, United Kingdom. This was Fegatilli's biggest win to date. Foster Jr. was knocked down a total of five times yet lasted to the final bell. Relatively unknown and a 13-2 underdog before this fight, Il Dottore surprised many with the result.
Final scores were 140-110 and 114-109 twice, making Fegatilli the winner by unanimous decision. Foster was knocked down once in round nine, three times in round 10 and once more in round 11. Foster Jr. gave a good account of himself in the first seven rounds but Fegatilli's consistent body attack and high workrate proved to be too much for Foster Jr, who had stopped Levan Kirakosyan in three rounds in October 2010.
First title defense
Fegatilli was set to make a voluntary defense of his European title against tough Frenchmen and EBU-EU super featherweight champion Karim Chakim in October  but French promotor Gilbert Tesseron cancelled the fight just 4 days before it was to take place because of financial reasons.
Ermano defended his EBU title on 25 February against Italian Antonio De Vitis in the latter one's hometown of Savigliano, Italy. Fegatilli remained on the attack in a technically thrilling bout. A cut on the head of De Vitis caused a stoppage in round 6. Fegatilli won a close-but-clear majority decision.
Because of the cancellation of the fight against Chakim Fegatilli's management was forced to organize a bout to keep Ermano's high world rank spot secured.
Losing his title
On 21 July 2012 Fegatilli lost his title in a close and questionable decision to Italy's Devis Boschiero.
The fight was very close and entertaining to watch but on the scorecards but all three judges scored the contest for the local challenger Boschiero. Many people protested for a rematch.
On 28 September 2012 Fegatilli returned home to Gent, Belgium to face journeyman Michael Isaac Carrero.
He dominated the overmatched Michael Carrero over eight rounds quite clearly winning a near-shutout Unanimous Decision.
Karim Chakim trilogy
On 29 March 2013 Ermano Fegatilli once again fought at the Topsportal - This time with vengeance in mind. In a trilogy fight with past rival Karim Chakim, Ermano Fegatilli fought past the French veteran in a highly impressive 80-72 victory. This fight sparked him back into Super Featherweight title contention.
