“The American dream has always been something unattainable, a real dream in the drawer, but now that I have signed an American contract with Star Boxing, it makes me feel glorified and excited. America is known to be the heart of boxing. There is no better place to grow and reach important goals. My commitments to reach them will be maximum. I will be proud and honored to fight under the eye of many fellow emigrants, to whom I already bring my greetings. Above all, I would like to greet all of my American relatives! Finally, a dutiful thanks to Stat Boxing, Joe DeGuardia, Luigi Camputaro, and above all Armando Bellotti who allowed us to get here.”
