If there are any Italians here, who're the best up n coming prospects? I really thought Giacon was gonna go be big, Alessandro Riguccini looks good.

[QUOTE=lutenco;13464593]Obviously you don't know Leonard Bundu.....[/QUOTE] I do and he's not good enough. The real shame with Italian boxing is the age of their best fighters, the Italy top 10 P4P has an average age of 35.

Devis Boschiero was robbed against Takahiro Ao, clearly. He had to be WBC superfeatherweight champion.
