    counters and short right-hooks to the head.

    Nicolino travels to Cordoba to take on the brash-talking 23 year-old Cordovan Lightweight - Tristan Falfan.

    Nicolino plays with the local Hero over the first 4-Rounds by 'bobbing-and-bopping'. In Round 5, Nicolino decides
    to open up, and he batters the over-matched local fighter with a two-fisted barrage, and has Tristan in trouble.

    In Round 6, Nicolino pours it on, and hammers the Cordoba Lightweight to the canvas '3-Times', ending the
    bout by a Knockout.

    Hey Primo,

    You big dumb oaf, that photo of Cassius Clay and Nicolino Locche was posted by 'Beanflicker'.

    As an Italian, you're giving us a bad name by not reading.

    Comprehension my friend. Comprehension.

    Apology Accepted

    Muhammad Ali obviously has poor taste in picking out a Suit.

    That pattern is 'horrible'.

    He looks like an Automobile Car Salesman.

    Would you buy a car from the same man who sold you > Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki

    Absolutely love the way Locche operates but I don't recall him fighting anyone good in 1962 so I fail to see the point. I don't understand the fascination with being busy if it isn't against quality? I thought the important part of being a great boxer is beating great boxers?

    Answer,

    No North American Lightweights were willing to travel to Argentina to fight Nicolino Locche
    in 1962.

    Nicolino had to fight all the tough Argentinian Lightweights, who were all very good at
    that time period, and ranked within the World Top 20.

    * Jaime Gine
    * Manuel 'Sixto' Alvarez
    * Pedro Benelli
    * Vicente Milan Derado
    * Ubaldino Escobar
    * Guillermo Cano

    Only, Eulugio Caballero {Uruguayan Lightweight Champion} was willing to go into
    Argentina to fight the top Argentinian Lightweights.
