I have never said such a thing and never wrote it on my Facebook page. I train every day with maestro Gino Freo because I want to return to the ring, to win the WBO intercontinental title and to propose myself again at a high level. Becoming Intercontinental Champion means being ranked in the top fifteen in the world by the WBO and this could open the door for me to even more important fights. After taking that title, I set no limits. I have seen some encounters by Francesco Patera, he is taller than me, he has a greater reach, but I have prepared myself to neutralize these strengths. You will see a good match, don’t miss it. ” Equally determined Francesco Patera: “This match has been postponed several times, but I had heard the Cherchi also this summer and they had never talked to me about fighting someone else. I’ve always been ready to face Boschiero at any time, today I’m at the top and I’ll win because I want a world title match soon. “

In the Allianz Cloud ring you will see a great match. ” Jurgen Doberstein wanted to underline that it would be a serious mistake for Scardina to underestimate him: “It is true that I lost against an Italian boxer, Stefano Loriga, but I came from a difficult period and had just changed coach. Now I am very well trained and determined to win. ” Italian champion Nicholas Esposito said he studied Cavallucci and understood how to neutralize his strengths: “Cavallucci often changes his guard during the match, but I faced left-handed boxers and beat them.”
