London native Frank Buglioni first tugged on a pair of boxing gloves at age 12, got roughed up in sparring, and has been smitten with the sport ever since.
He won two national championships and the Commonwealth Games as an amateur, and has captured the Euro super middleweight and British light heavyweight championships as a pro.
He's only suffered two setbacks, but says he came away from both losses with a higher education that served him later. His 2016 win over Hosea Burton, a victory, was regarded by many as a Fight of the Year candidate.
This is a fascinating conversation with an articulate Brit with plans to make waves on the international stage.
Our interview with Frank Buglioni is preceded by a thorough breakdown by Raspanti, Travis Hartman and Rizwaan Zahid on multiple subjects, including Saturday's upcoming superfight between Golovkin and Jacobs, what's next for Pacquiao now that the Amir Khan fight is up in smoke, the stunning announcement of a $50 million, two-division World Boxing Super Series tournament, Tyson Fury's 350-pound body as he resumes training, and the future of David Lemieux after sending Curtis Stevens out of the arena asleep on a gurney over the weekend.
