Euro Boxing Roundup: Tiozzo Broke, Abraham/Miranda Undercard, More
15.08.06 - By Per Ake Persson: Former WBA supermiddle champ Christophe Tiozzo saw most of his ring earnings go up in smoke due to bad investments, writes netboxe.com. Tiozzo then sued the attorney who handled his finances and won after a ruling in a French supreme court. However, he never got any money. The ex-champ, who won bronze in the 84 Olympics, is now looking to make a public protest and give all medals and belts to the French Government to get attention to his case.. Tiozzo turned pro in 85, won the EBU 160 lb champ in 88 and won the WBA crown at supermiddle in 1990. He also challenged then WBC lightheavy ruler Jeff Harding but was stopped in eight. Tiozzo retired in 92 but came back 95-96.
