  • Vianello, a former sparring partner of Tyson Fury, has improved leaps and bounds since his amateur days but he still has a long way to go. He’s a charismatic/nice guy with power but I hope he will be brought along carefully. If he gets to fight any top 30 heavyweight too soon, he will get knocked out brutally and it could be very detrimental to his career.
