Fano Kori has been in the ring with all the top challengers in Australia, such as Mateo Tapia, Wes Capper, Jesse White, Koen Mazouider, Sherwyn Watkins to name a few.
The unbeaten Italian-Australian prospect Jordan hasn’t had an amateur career and has gone straight through the pro ranks and is making some noise after racking up five wins from as many starts.The rising super-welterweight star trained at Juventus in Italy as a goalkeeper before heading back to Australia to pursue a career in pugilism.
Laruccia discussed the forthcoming fight: “I love this fight, I just want to fight the best, I have full respect to Fano, he had a very decorated amateur background and has had 14 professional fights, so he is well experienced. It’s the step-up fight I need at this point in my career.
“I need these opportunities and I will always rise to the occasion, I have the best team behind me, my trainer Big Rig (Dayle Phillips), Tony Tolj – he's literally the Mr Boxing of Australia, these people bend of backwards to give us the opportunities in our career. I train like an animal so I’m always ready for anything.
“All I do is ask, when am I fighting and who Im fighting. I leave the rest to my team. September 1st, two men enter one man leaves, welcome to the Thunderdome!”
