“It’s great to be world champion after everything I’ve been through. It’s a beautiful thing and I think it was seen when they gave me the belt, I let out an impressive cry”Infobae tells Ezequiel, that after the title was again part of the customer service of the Catanzaro pizzeria.
For the 23-year-old, boxing allowed him to distance himself from the domestic problems that plagued him, “I started with some twists because as a boy I didn’t know what I wanted to do (…) at 16 I got completely into it (…) I started with them -for the Communications Club- as an amateur in 2017 and we have continued to work together until now”.
Ezequiel also says that when he was an amateur, he didn’t do double team practice regularly because “My coach didn’t want to, but since I turned pro I always do the physical part in the morning (with his trainer Juan Manuel Hernández) and boxing in the afternoon (with Luis Nieva, Fabián Montemagno and Damián Rosati)”.
Currently, at night time and after coaching two shifts, Ezequiel, works as a phone operator at pizzeria Catanzaro in Villa Urquizaon which he returned simply 3 days after he turned world champion: “Last week I took the whole week to get started. I had worked on Tuesday and then I didn’t work again until this Tuesday when I get back. I could have taken a few days off, but I didn’t ask for it.”says the young champion who started working when he was 14 years old.
During the day, evening training and working at night, the junior world champion thinks about what the defense of the title will be and is working on it with his entire team. “I think I will be able to make one or two defenses. Today I am resting, but the main idea is to get in the standings and win as much as possible.”declares the younger nationwide pledge who shall be allowed to defend his title till 23 years and 11 months beneath WBC laws.
