Frank Buglioni Eager To Trade Punches With Khomitsky

Top Enfield talent Frank Buglioni is hungry for ring success now that heís had a pizza named after him.

The super-middleweight star defends his WBO European title for the second time this Saturday (12th April) at the Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in London, and will tuck into his special ďWise GuyĒ pizza once heís defeated challenger Sergey Khomitsky.

Buglioniís dynamite punching and model looks from his Italian heritage have attracted a lot of attention outside of the ring and a local restaurant has taken his nickname to give to one of their pizzas.

He said, ďA friend of mine named Jim over in one of the local restaurants in Enfield wanted to name the pizza after me on the menu. I helped him and went and opened the restaurant for him. Itís quite a surreal thing to have. Itís nice. I met him at a charity football match and he has followed my career, he loves his boxing and we kept in contact and it just so happened this was a venture of his and he has made me a part of it with the name of the pizza. Iím quite proud of it. Unfortunately Iím not the chef so I didnít get to choose what it was but he said itís a classic Italian pizza that packs a punch! I was happy with that.Ē

Undefeated in twelve fights with nine stoppages and his last three fights ending in big KO stoppages, Buglioni, 24, faces the hardest test of his career against the Belarusian who ended the career of Jamie Moore and took big hitters Martin Murray and Ryan Rhodes the distance.

He added, ďI know heís a good fighter. I know he has mixed with world-class opposition. He has stopped Jamie Moore, went the distance with Ryan Rhodes and only got beat by Martin Murray last time out by points. He is a very experienced guy and is going to be my toughest test to date. I havenít underestimated him at all. Iíve trained very hard for him. Iíve got a mind in a good place and Iím ready to put on a good performance.† Once Khomitsky is out of the way Iím looking forward to feasting on my pizza!Ē†
