Default What's your thoughts on Giovanni Parisi?

I stumbled across this guy's fights and he seemed like a mid-level slickster. If he wasn't getting what he wanted with his hand speed he shifted gears to frustrate. What do you guys think?

Here's what I saw that sparked the interest:

From this video I can't tell if Parisi is left or right handed. Was he a switch hitter? The video seems to show he was, but when I did video editing sometimes I'd "flip" the scene backwards depending on how shitty the camera man did. You'd think editing would be fun, but that was a shit job.

I used to see his name in boxing magazines a lot in the early 90's. I believe he had a title of some sort, but don't believe it was a major title. The only time I saw him fight was against Julio Cesar Chavez on what I believe to be the same night McCall defeated Holmes.

Just looked him up mid-post. He held the WBO lightweight title for a while. His fight with Chavez is on youtube.
