Arena CEO Ahmet Öner has added former IBF super middleweight and WBC light heavyweight champion Graciano Rocchigiani to his trainer staff. 45-year-old “Rocky” is now responsible for the development of rising Turkish welterweight star Selcuk Aydin. “I am glad to have the chance to work with a rough diamond like Selcuk,” states Rocchigiani. “If he stays focused and keeps on working hard he will surely not only become world champion but a dominant force and an international superstar.”

‘Rocky’ was impressed with the first training session he did with ‘Mini-Tyson’ Aydin. “I have also seen all of his fights and I think that we have a lot in common. Selcuk is an aggressive fighter who loves to come forward. The only difference between us is that he hits way harder than I ever did. He’s got enormous punch power.”

Aydin has just recovered from a rib injury which has prevented him from defending his WBC international champion title against Said Ouali last November. ‘Mini-Tyson’ should be able to return to the ring in March. He will do most parts of the preparation for his comeback fight at Rocky’s gym in Duisburg.
