THE STORY:

When I was a young kid growing up in Italy in the mid -late 70s I remember seeing boxing matches on Italian TV— the fights were in black and white and the images were a bit grainy but I loved watching those larger than life figures like Carlos Monzon , Mohammed Ali , Roberto Duran .. And how can I forget the Marvin Hagler –Vito Antuofermo bloody 15 round draw which made all Italians quite proud although the Marvelous probably should have won it …

For sure boxing instilled in me its discipline and love of competition — in Rome where I grew up I boxed and kick- boxed ( very popular then ) —I won some, lost some but always competed and actually won the Italian Cup in kickboxing as a middle weight .But maybe even more than this, I have been so lucky to meet and engage with boxers and some of the wonderful inspirational people that have dedicated their life to this amazing sport . Like Bruce Silverglade whom I met when I first come to America 30 years ago and always gave me good advice and beautiful friendship . I also love his one of a kind Gleason stories ( time to do a book ! ) as I love listening to friends like Paulie Malignaggi and Anthony Catanzaro talk about the sweet science.

I have been a little lucky in my professional life and this has also allowed me to dedicate also time and efforts to charity — I love teaching soccer to at risk youth in the Bronx through the Street Soccer USA Organization (soccer is another one of my passions ….dahhh I’m Italian!) — I created a scholarship for kids in my hometown of Amaroni , Calabria dedicated to my beloved mother Vicki Ciampa . A charity highlight will always be for me the fundraiser I organized with Bruce for Tag Heuer dedicated to the Ali Foundation — besides being an amazing event where I met so many of my idols ( Manos de Piedra !!!) we raised lots of money for such an important cause like Parkinsons . So happy also to support ‘Give a Kid a Dream ‘one of Bruce’s many great life missions .
