Buglioni ready for light-heavy assault

Buglioni PosterFrank Buglioni is back and ready to take on the best light-hevies after moving up following defeat in his quest to capture the WBA super-middle title from hard hitting Russian Fedor Chudinov last September.

Buglioni who went into the fight the underdog although losing on points did himself justice by hanging in there until the final bell and catching the Russian with a few decent shots along the way.

The Enfield 26yo told DAILY SPORT boxing“I’ve been at world level and I’ve won numerous titles,” he says. “I know I’ve got the ability to reach the top and now it’s all about establishing myself in a new weight-class.

“I got too big for super-middleweight. I know I’ll have more power, more strength and more stamina at light-heavyweight. I was coming down from fourteen stone to twelve. It will still be a bit of a struggle but I’ll be more comfortable and will have more in the tank on fight night.

“I’ll use this fight on March 26 to showcase my skills on a different platform. I’ll be looking to make a statement and start chasing domestic titles.”

Buglioni makes his 175lb debut on March 26 at the SSE Arena Wembley on the undercard of Blackwell v Eubank Jr LIVE on Channel 5.
