Appears pretty similar, still all about the left hand offensively and appears well on the way being the defensive savant he would become.

As to the true age of the footage, his hairline is certainly more prominent than it was in the footage we have of him from his title reign

I saw, or have seen Locche fight:


Rambaldi
Ribeiro
Dilella
Carlos Ortiz
Fuji
Acevedo
Pruitt
Barrera
Adigue
Antonio Ortiz
Cervantes Both
Fraser
Morgan
Corpas
Ferrat
Hernandez
Henrique
Huertas
Mercado
Trujillo


In some of those fights he was brilliant. In many others he did absolutely nothing but show up for a paycheck and a decision which was obviously predetermined.

Well as far as I know not many of 'em are readily available nowadays. I may be wrongly assuming but I don't get the impression you're old enough to have been there

If youve ever seen his fight with Fraser, imagine that without the offense by Locche. That was pretty indicative of his style when he had his friends officiating. He would mug, and clown, and generally try to make the other guy look bad or foolish without doing much offensively. Because of that I have a hard time ranking him.

When he was really letting it all hang out using all of his tools he was fantastic but more often than not he was a stinker.

The best Locche you would have ever seen was in training. When he was really trying to get into condition in training he was awsome. He would make his sparring partners look ridiculous.

Locche's performances against Hernandez and Fuji are the most indicative of his prime form in my estimation. We must not forget that he was around 30 years old when he was finally given a title shot with a hundred professional bouts behind him.

Those early title fights of his showed him focused and willing to win in emphatic fashion, more so than some of his later efforts.

The Great A,

That looks like Brazilian Lightweight - Sebastiao Nascimento 23-3-7 (10 KO's), the South American Lightweight Champion.

June 29, 1963 (Estadio Luna Park, Buenos Aires)

Nicolino Locche fought, and defeated Sebastiao over 15-Rounds, to win the South American Lightweight Championship.

Irrelevant really,...Locche was a genius.

Clearly Fuji was his best showing. Such a strong, dangerous man and Locche frustrated him so much and made punching such a futile exercise for Fuji that he gave up.

Talk about disarming a puncher. Fuji tried his wildest, his smartest and his hardest. Just couldn't get off and when he did he hit thin air.

Its never irrelevent when a guy cant lose at home. Gift decisions are not irrelevant. Thats the exact attitude that allowed Argentine officials to get away with giving away those gifts to guys like monzon, locche, and bonavena just to placate hero worshipping fans.

Would have been interesting to see Locche's early fights.

He looked faster, with much better movement and fitter against Ortiz.

His style appeared similar enough even by then, if a bit more unrefined. Can't confirm whether it was truly filmed in 1963 or not though.
Acording to boxrec. He fought Sebastiao Nascimento on 6/29.1963. Winning a 15 round decision for the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

If that bout was fought at Estadio Luna Park,,,,,,,,

Who would go against Nicolino Locche getting the 15-Round Decision.

No way would 17 1/2 year-old Wilfred have the 'guns' to stop him.
