Magnesi vs Theran takes place on Oct 27 for WBC silver

Michael “Lone Wolf” Magnesi is preparing for the first defense of the Silver WBC super featherweight world title he conquered last March 31.

He goes up versus the Argentinian Ayrton Gimenez.

The 28-year-old Italian boxer born in Palestrina (metropolitan city of Rome) boasts a record of 22 wins and one defeat. He will be defending the belt against Nike “La Promesa” Theran (18 w), a 26-year-old Colombian born in Barranquilla.

Theran lives and trains in Santo Domingo.

A meeting on the bill for next October 27th in Rome, in a location that will be made official shortly.

“It will be a fundamental step for Michael,” underlines his promoter (and wife) Alessandra Branco. “He is in 9th position in the WBC ranking.

“If he will win he could enter in the top 5 and then assault the Gold belt of the same federation, currently held by the American O’Shaquie Foster.

“But now we need to concentrate only on the defense on October.”

She added: “Before we chose him, we contacted at least eight other boxers present in the WBC ranking. But for various reasons nobody agreed to fight Michael.

“We spotted the Colombian. He’s a solid, undefeated, and also heavy-punching athlete who loves to switch at close range.

“Considering Michael’s skills, they are ideal characteristics to bring to the fight.”

Magnesi has already started training under the watchful eye of the master Gesumino Aglioti and of the multiple world champion Silvio Branco, who has been following his technical and athletic part for some time now.

In the last weeks of August, it is expected to make a brief stop. The italian boxer and his wife-promoter have reached the city of Fondi, in the province of Latina, to enjoy a few days of relaxation with their fraternal friend and main sponsor Roberto Massarone, patron of the Le Cinéma Café group.

Then he will start the second portion of the training.

“We will start with the final preparation, the hardest. I will enter on the ring determined to conquer this other great world dream.”

Tickets will soon be available online on the platform boxol.it.
