Vito Mielnicki’s GH3 Promotions is pleased to announced the addition of Heavyweight contender Natu Visinia to it’s roster.
Visinia will now be co-promoted with Sal Musumeci’s Final Forum Boxing.
Visinia, 30 years-old of Clinton, Illinois scored a 4th round stoppage over Joshua Clarke on May 13 in Hollywood, California as part of the Sugar Ray Leonard Charity Event. With that win he upped his record to 11-1 with 9 knockouts and it was his first effort since his lone setback when he he lost to two-time world champion Steve Cunningham in October.
“I think its a great thing to get with GH3. Vito has been great at moving fighters and getting them fights. That has been my problem is getting fights. I think that being able to stay consistent with fighting and staying in the ring and being able to stay busy will help me out in the long run,”said Visinia.
The win over Clarke is impressive because Clarke is 12-1 as an MMA fighter and 2-3-2 as a boxer. Clarke went the distance with world-ranked Charles Martin and Visinia was able to impressively stop the native of Richmond, Virginia.
“Clarke was a tough guy. He has never been knocked out in any of his 20 fights. He doesnt have a very good boxing record and everyone he has fought has been undefeated. Going in there to knockout a durable guy like that gives me confidence.”
“I want to stay busy and I will do my end and that is to train hard, I will leave it to Vito and his team to put the fights together. It never matters who I am fighting. People questioned me about taking on Steve Cunningham after 10 fights but that is the fighter I am.”
“We are very happy to make the deal get Natu into the fold with us at GH3,” Said Vito Mielnicki.
“Natu has shown that he is a huge puncher. The only thing he has been lacking is experience and everybody knows how active I like to keep my guys. We already have plans to bring him back June 6 and June 27. I look forward to overseeing the development of Natu and want to thank Sal Musumeci for making this happen. Together with Sal, we can bring Natu to the top of the Heavyweight division.”
“I am excited to co-promote with Natu with GH3 Promotions,” said Final Forum’s Sal Musumeci. “Vito keeps his fighters very busy and we feel that is what Natu needs. With the proper activity, Natu Visinia can become a major force in the Heavyweight division.”
