And now he's going to fight on, but at welterweight?

I guess it isn't a bad move if cutting down is really part of his troubles. Fortunately for him there aren't many big punchers at welterweight when it comes to the top of the Italian domestic heap. (Branco, Bundu, etc.)

Maybe Lauri could land an opportunity as Sven Paris' comeback opponent? If he loses, hang 'em up. If he wins, keep on going at WW.
Di rocco was beating Lauri, He lost by DQ because he starting kicking and swinging at Lauri because of all of his intentional butts, Di Rocco should be undefeated.
