On Sunday, European super lightweight champion Michele Di Rocco had a public workout in Milan, Italy. That was the first time that Milan hosted a boxing champion’s public workout. The event took place in front of the temporary store of Leone 1947 in downtown Corso Buenos Aires and hundreds of people stopped by. “I’m very happy about it,” Alessandro Cherchi said. “And about all the journalists and photographers that showed up. Even city councilman Pierfrancesco Maran came to the public workout and posed for a photo with Michele. We will promote more public workouts in the future hoping to get an even bigger crowd.”
Di Rocco was joined by former Italian super lightweight champion Renato De Donato and a group of rising fighters: Matteo Rondena, Catalin Paraschiveanu and Alessio Taverniti. On February 28, Michele Di Rocco will defend his Euro title at Principe theater in Milan against Kasper Bruun on a card promoted by Salvatore Cherchi’s OPI 2000 in association with Principe Boxing Events led by Alessandro Cherchi.
