Tough Tony Chiaverini


Recommended Posts

One of best middleweights of the late 1970's and early 1980's was Kansas City,Missouri's Tony Chiaverini. Over a fifty bout career this 5'8" southpaw battled some of the best boxers of the era.

Tony was born in 1953 and turned professional in 1975. He won seven of his first nine bouts. The two losses were to highly touted prospect Doug Demmings. After winning four in a row,Tony would drop a verdict to Cleveland's James Parks. Chiaverini then put together a ten bout win streak that included victories over Sammy NeSmith,Vincente Medina,Tony Gardner,Willie Warren and the crafty Vinnie Curto. This led to a 1978 showdown with "Bad" Bennie Briscoe. The dangerous Briscoe halted Tony in the eighth round.
