The Resume

    (February 9, 1953- )
    Born in Palo del Colle, Puglia, Italy
    Professional boxing's middleweight champion of the world between June 30, 1979 to June 28, 1980
    Retired with a professional record of Fifty wins, seven losses and two draws
    Remembered for his incredible toughness and propensity to bleed easily and profusely
    Inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994
    Moved into acting after retirement appearing on The Sopranos and in the movies 'Goodfellas' and 'The Godfather III'

Why he might be annoying:

    He was extremely cut prone with five of his seven losses coming via TKO due to cuts suffered during fights.
    He was a light puncher scoring only twenty one knockouts in his pro career.
    His title win over Hugo Corro was extremely boring and somewhat controversial.
    His draw with Marvin Hagler in his first title defense was extremely controversial.
    He did very poorly against more skilled boxers preferring fighters who would brawl with him.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was incredibly tough physically, being knocked down only four times during his career and never actually knocked out.
    He was extraordinarily physically strong for someone his size, five foot eight, one hundred and sixty pounds.
    After retiring, he did some acting, handing in some credible performances on 'The Sopranos' and being part of a particularly cool death scene in 'The Godfather III.'
    He gave Marvin Hagler his long overdue title shot, and not only ducked no one, but actually pursued fights with the toughest fighters he could find.
    He was well liked and respected by other fighters.
    While serving as a color commentator for the Marvin Hagler/Alan Minter title fight, he beat up one of his attackers when a riot broke out after Hagler beat Minter.
    His wife said in an interview she was first attracted to him because she thought he was cute!
