Post Comments Thread For: Ex-champ Spadafora Longing To Regain The Spotlight

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - Though hed like to climb through the top 10 in his division and ultimately land a fight with an established pound-for-pound commodity, its first things first for Paul Spadafora.

The Pittsburgh native, now 37, simply wants people to know that hes still out there.

My manager and promoter have been working hard to make meaningful fights for me and Ive been working hard in the gym to keep myself sharp, said the still-unbeaten ex-IBF lightweight champ, who made eight title defenses from 1999 to 2003. Weve come a long way from being unranked to top 10 in three out of four belt organizations.

Im also hoping that an opportunity comes around for me where a top guy is willing to fight me. Many people thought I retired, so I need to keep busy and perform well and become relevant again. I think Ive shown that in my last two fights.

Spadafora, who fought just nine times amid myriad non-ring problems between 2004 and 2010, resurfaced last August with a unanimous eight-round decision over Ecuadorian veteran Humberto Toledo at the Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort in West Virginia and returned four months later with a 10-round nod over Solomon Egberime.

The wins moved him to 47-0-1 in an intermittent career that began in 1995, and, more vitally, got him to No. 8 in the IBF rankings at junior welterweight, where hes also ranked ninth by the WBA and WBO, and 15th by the WBC. He was hoping to boost his standing by facing off with once-beaten Vernon Paris on April 6, but that match fell through due to promotional issues and left Spadafora to instead face unheralded Robert Frankel (32-12-1) a sparring partner of WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner.

This guy keeps talking about what he wants, but he faces the weakest competition out there. If he wants to be taken seriously, he is going to have to prove it in the ring. 140 is the deepest division in boxing, there are decent fights he can be a part of.

I tell boxing fans they need to look at the Cardona fight to see what Pauli is capable of. Yeah it's been 10 years. Thing is, Spadafora hasn't lost in his career, and he has learned alot above and beyond his already impressive resume. Including how to move on past his wacked out of control outside the ring episodes. Time will tell if he moves past it all and puts everything together to win a title. I have my doubts, but he is a great boxer, and has always been a dedicated student of the sport. I wish him the best.

It would interesting to see him get serious and step up again.

I hear so much about this guy, but have never seen him fight and have never taken the time to as his commitment to the game is horrible.

When I think of his name, I think wasted talent. Should've, could've, would've, but didn't.

Is this is the infamous Mayweather sparring guy whose name pops up every so often? It's weird seeing someone with an "0" after 18 years. :shk1:

It would be intersting to see what he would do if he stepped up but he sure did have a long layoff.
