Ring Rooster 11, interview with Gianpaolo Venanzetti
Gianpaolo, are you ready to return to the ring?
“I’m very ready. I train three times a day: in the morning I do two hours of athletic training which includes working with weights. In the afternoon I go to the gym and take care of the boxing part, also doing sparring with very good boxers. Some of them are heavier than me: I’ve even sparred with super-medium weights. Even though I had to fight for six rounds, I did a lot more during the sparring sessions. I consider myself a striker, but I also train the defense a lot. I have always admired Floyd Mayweather for his defensive prowess, as well as for his boxing intelligence. Recently, I saw his matches against Oscar De La Hoya and Zab Judah. In defense, James Toney was also very good. “
Who do you like among the current champions?
“Super featherweight and WBA lightweight world champion Gervonta Davis because he’s left-handed and has the power to knock anyone out. I identify with him. I saw his fights against Jose Pedraza and Leo Santa Cruz. I like to watch the great meetings of the present and the past. “
Among the Italian boxers in your weight category, is there anyone you would like to face?
“All. I have no problems facing anyone in the Italian top ten ranking, but I only have one professional match under my belt and so I’ll have to build a record with several wins before making the leap in quality. “
As an amateur, you fought in the 69 kg. As a professional, in the 63.504 kg. Did losing weight cause you problems?
“No, because the nutritionist Roberto Scrigna follows me. When I was an amateur there was no such professional following me and therefore I weighed more than 69 kg and had problems within the weight limit. Moreover, the weigh-in operations took place on the same day of the fight and not the day before as in professionalism. I changed my diet and I feel fit at 63,504 kg. ”
