Frank Buglioni Taking His Time, Not Rushing For Gold

Hot-prospect Frank Buglioni takes to the ring tonight for his second professional outing at York Hall but is in no rush to pursue any titles in the near future.

The Londoner believes taking his time and gaining the experience needed will eventually see him achieve his goals on the domestic scene before progressing further.

Super-Middleweight Buglioni made his successful pro debut with a first round knockout of Sabie Montieth at Wembley Arena on bon fire night before watching British and Commonwealth champion George Groves see off Paul Smith, a position Buglioni hopes to achieve in two to three years time.

The 22-year-old, who takes on Paul Morby over four rounds, said, “I am a good couple of years away from fighting for titles. Groves turned pro about 3 years ago so there is no need to rush into anything. There is no rush I will take my time. When I progress on to that level I aim stay there and then move beyond it.”

The Enfield fighter will fight at Bethnal Green’s York Hall, a venue where many fighters who have gone on to become legends have started their pro careers there. Buglioni though wants to take each fight as it comes and not look too far ahead, “I just want to take each fight as it comes. Get the rounds under my belt and to keep improving. I want to take a little experience from each fight I have.”

Buglioni was widely regarded as one of Britain’s best amateur boxers before moving into the pro ranks, he was known to many before his debut this month for his powerful boxing style as well providing competitive sparring for many of today’s pro fighters. The TRAD TKO gym boxer though feels he has improved greatly since his amateur days, “I have 100% improved. People who haven’t seen me in a while have noticed it. I feel it as well whilst I am fighting. The pro game really suits my style instead of training three or four times a day in short sessions. We train for longer and less frequently.

Mark Tibbs who trains Buglioni had hoped for a comfortable debut victory for Buglioni a fortnight ago but he wouldn’t have expected it to be as comfortable as it was and neither did the 22-year-old, “I was over the moon with my debut. I was surprised I managed to win in the first. We had a game plan and thought we could beat him by the third or fourth. It worked quicker than planned. Montieth had never been stopped.”

Buglioni considers himself as a super-middleweight but has the power and build to fight at light-heavyweight it is something he says he will decide in the future, “At the minute I am fighting in catch-weight fights, I consider myself as a super-middleweight but if I am more comfortable moving up to light-heavyweight we will sit down and take that decision in the future.”

Buglioni features on the undercard of Enzo Maccarinelli's light-heavyweight debut and the Vacant Southern Area Cruiserweight Clash between Tony Conquest and Toks Owoh, live on BoxNation (Sky Platform Ch. 456)

Bully-Own-i lol. I hated it when that fat bald prick MC called him Bug-Leone. I thought his stoppage win was rather early but what a shot it was.
