The great Boxer Floriano Pagliara aka Floriano L’Italiano Pagliara flanked by big Mike Warren and Jon Hammond at Mike’s wonderful Cupcake Cafe on Ninth Avenue New York City – Check out Floriano’s webiste folks:
and Wikipedia:
Floriano Pagliara (Marbach am Neckar, 31 dicembre 1978) è un pugile italiano, nato in Germania, ma cresciuto a Cecina.
Nonostante la Germania gli abbia dato i natali e il cognome tradisca origini pugliesi, Floriano è cresciuto a Cecina (LI). Floriano Pagliara inizia a praticare il pugilato all’età di 15 anni presso la Boxe Cecina; un anno e otto mesi dopo disputa il suo primo incontro da dilettante ottenendo subito un successo.
Da allora ben 55 incontri da dilettante (41 vittorie, 4 pareggi e 10 sconfitte), tra cui due con la maglia della nazionale italiana (2004). Nel palmares del pugile cecinese anche due vittorie del Torneo Internazionale di Cremona, 10 titoli regionali (dal 1995 al 2005) e due secondi posti ai campionati italiani assoluti.
