Default Re: why did Roberto Cammarelle not turn pro

Cammarelle is an amazing talent, but he might have stamina and chin problems on the next level.
He has a good chin. I think he was down against Timurziev at 2006 Euros, ,a little stunned vs Romanchuk at 05 Worlds but thats the only times i can remember him really being effected. Roman and Timurziev were both very good punchers.

Ya he seems happy being a cop in Italy and i read an interview a while ago where he said he didn't like knocking guys out. He thinks that beating them over a full fight proves more mastery over an opponent, not a pro attitude. Damiani must be ****ed, if only he had Roberto's power.

He can't beat Russians. Romanchuk, Timurziev, Kuzmin, Omarov, Povetkin (what 4 times?) all beat him. He would be cursed in the pro ranks.
