Boxing: Frank Buglioni
Frank Buglioni looks and fights like a boxer from London's East End in the Seventies. It is, trust me, a compliment.
Buglioni, from Enfield, has been a pro for just over a year after deciding that he would probably get overlooked for an Olympic opportunity, and he was right. He is better suited to the pro game, a sport where a bit of thought goes a long way.
Buglioni is 23, unbeaten in seven fights, with five ending quick, including three in the first round. He has so far only beaten men that he was matched carefully against, which is how all quality boxing careers start.
The edge for Buglioni is his fans and he now attracts just over 700 punters whenever he fights. They arrive smart, early and lively. They Poznan in victory and change the shape of a night with their noise and laughter.
Frankie can fight, he likes to fight, which is not always a sensible thing, and his Italian roots have made him de rigueur on the espresso circuit. Boxing fans like a fighter who goes for the knockout, who lives in the ring a bit dangerously and in Buglioni they have a boy they can trust.
