Default Hey yo, Who is the next big Italian fighter?

Don't talk about that Malignaggi punk he needs a old fashioned ass whooping before he can represent Italian folk.

The biggest fighter with italian blood in him is Joe Calzaghe, if you are talking about Italian-American... Malignaggi is the best the US has in terms of italian fighters.. come on he gave cotto a good fight and is a legit world champion , probably the best at 140

Joe Calzaghe is easily the best active fighter with Italian blood

...and by the way, hasn't Malignaggi taken the vicious ass whoopin' already?

Cotto laid a pretty old fashioned ass whooping on Malignaggi.

You gotta respect Joe. I was just takin the piss outta some kid about B-Hop smokin him with ease. Paulie did give Cotto a tough fight and showed his heart like a real Italian. I just don't like the guido shit.

So what if he's not undisputed

He's still miles better than Malignaggi, as is Witter

He got a joke decision in his last fight

Francesco Pinieta isnt doing to badly for himself at heavyweight at present. fights for the WBC youth strape shortly, should be a good step up fight for him.

well being english from carribean descent i'm not in the place to choose who is the perfect italian fighter...BUT

what sterotypical of italian fighters are tough tough tough...thats one thing this guy is. maybe not the machismo tough that latin fighters are known for (italian is latin right). cotto's beat down of him showed how mentaly strong he is. he doesnt give up.

besides on of the thing of being too slick and too much of a pretty boxer one of the greatest italian elk boxers is willie pep.

Hatton is undisputed. You guys say titles dont mean shit, and then you give them way too much credit.

Tszyu had all the belts, lost to Hatton. Simple as that.
