ITALY'S ALESSANDRO RIGUCCINI MAKING HIS NAME IN MEXICO
Press Release: Alessandro Riguccini is set to fight Jesus Antonio Rios in a lightweight bouttitle on Saturday, April 22, at the Auditorio Ernesto Rufo in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. While Riguccini is Italian, and Rios is Mexican, this is basically a battle for local pride as Riguccini has had all but one of his professional fights in Mexico. A world champion kick-boxer, he turned professional boxer in Italy in 2012 after only thirteen amateur fights, but relocated to Mexico shortly after. Joining the gym of Jorge Barrera, brother of the legendary Marco Antonio Barrera, the now 29-year-old from Florence has since build his record to 16-0. Rios (36-9-1) turned pro in 2002, and it is safe to say he has paid his dues.
