Michael Magnesi

Bio:

Super Featherweight, Michael “Lone Wolf” Magnesi fights out of Cave, Lazio, Italy. Magnesi is promoted by NY and CT Hall of Fame Promoter, Joe DeGuardia. Magnesi grew up in Cave and now resides in Civitavecchia.

Growing up, Magnesi was quiet and kept to himself. He is married to Alessandra Branco, daughter of former multi light heavyweight world champion Silvio Branco (63-11-3 37KO’s). Alessandra doubles as Magnesi’s manager, while Silvio aids and trains Magnesi in strength, conditioning, and boxing. In his spare time, Magnesi spends time with his family, has an affinity for Latin American music, enjoys ice skating and playing billiards and is an avid collector of cigars and knives.

Magnesi and Branco have three dachshunds named Nano, Zoe and America, the latter being named in honor of Magnesi signing a promotional contract with New York based Joe DeGuardias’s Star Boxing.

As an amateur Magnesi racked up 63 fights, winning 53, with only 4 defeats and 6 draws. During this time he would earn the 2010 Italian Junior Championship, 2011 & 2012 Italian Youth Championship, and the 2013 Italian Golden Gloves. Magnesi would also participate in the world series of boxing.

Turning pro in 2015, Magnesi has not looked back, securing a perfect record of 20 wins, 12 of which have come by big time knockout. In 2018, Magnesi had his first taste of professional gold when he defeated Francesco Invenizio via 3rd round TKO to earn the Italian National Super Featherweight Title. From 2019 through 2020 Magensi would add IBF Mediterranean, WBC International Silver and IBO Inter-Continental Super Featherweight Titles.

Finally in 2020, Magnesi would defeat Patrick Kinigamazi (then 32-2 4KO’s) for the vacant IBO World Super Featherweight Championship via domination, dropping Kinigamazi in the 3rd round, and finishing the fight in the 5th, with a vicious overhand right. In November 2021, Magnesi was victorious in his highly anticipated US debut in a war with Eugene Lagos winning by 3rd round TKO.

Magnesi prides himself on being a technical boxer with an ability to bang with the best of them. It is no accident that Magnesi has a 60% knockout ratio. Magnesi is currently world rated #16 by the WBC and #15 by the IBF.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Magensi vs Francesco Invenizio | Piazza Dante, Grosseto | June 30, 2018
Magnesi laced up his gloves for his toughest test to this point in his young career, taking on African champion Patrick Kingamazi (then 32-2 4KO’s) in Italy for the vacant IBO World Super Featherweight Championship over 12-rounds. The moment would not prove to be to big for Magnesi as he would proceed to drop Kingamazi with a straight left hand in the third, and an vicious overhand right in the 5th round that would close the show dubbing Magnesi as the new IBO World Champion.

Magnesi vs Eugene Lagos | The Paramount, New York | November 11, 2021
After singing a co-promotional deal with Star Boxing and DiBella Entertainment, it was time for Magnesi to cross the Atlantic for the first time, and make his highly anticipated US debut at Star Boxing’s Rockin’ Fights 40. Magnesi would face the first significant adversity of his career, getting dropped in the first round of the fight. However, Magnesi came back like a warrior, biting down and began trading with Lagos in the center of the ring. Pinning Lagos in the corner, Magnesi threw a picture-perfect right-hand combination from the body up the head that crumbled Lagos into the ropes and onto the canvas. Just seconds after beating the ten-count, Lagos unable to defend the onslaught from Magensi caused referee Al LoBianco to stop the fight, as Magnesi would win his US debut in emphatic fashion by 3rd
