the sportsman Emmanuel Ramponi 33 years old, a native of General Alvear, accredits an extensive career in the kick boxing At national and international level. He was Argentine champion in 2013 and won gold medals representing our country in the 2012 Pan American Games (Foz de Iguazú, Brazil) and in the 2015 South American Games (Santiago, Chile), among other achievements in the professional medal table of this contact sport.
The Mendoza has as its objectives for the remainder of 2021, if the health situation due to the pandemic allows it, to resume professional skills at the local and national level, both in kick boxing as in boxing. His family is made up of his parents, Miguel and Silvia, and two brothers: Maximiliano and Nicolás. For about eight years he has run a kick boxing academy in Luján de Cuyo.
Ramponi explained: “I have been practicing boxing for about eight years, always with the same people. Matías Lucero, who is my teacher, and Antonio Martínez, and we already had the idea of fighting as a professional boxer for some time, but for one reason or another things didn’t happen to do the fights. I managed to play two as an amateur and since I had the kick boxing fights, they gave me the opportunity to get my boxing license a little faster”.
His professional boxing debut
“At the beginning of this year we began to process it, I did all the medical studies, they approved it from the Argentine Boxing Federation (FAB) and they sent me the license. On May 15 I was able to make my debut as a professional boxer, during an event without an audience held in Eugenio Bustos, San Carlos”he indicated.
“Five amateur fights and three professional fights were held. -he added- and one of them was mine. I faced Miguel Giménez (Godoy Cruz). It was his third fight as a professional, four rounds in the welterweight division. I ended up winning the match on split decision. I felt very comfortable, I enjoyed it a lot, because after the pandemic being able to compete again after practically a year and a half, it was very satisfying and even more so taking the victory”.
He later considered that “For the rest of this year, we continue to prepare, training kick boxing alongside boxing, waiting for fight confirmations, taking into account that due to the pandemic situation, events are without an audience and it becomes more difficult to get fights, but we are waiting, prepared and with all the desire to fight again, either in kick boxing or boxing, but thank God, the doors are opening to fight soon in boxing, and waiting for the possibility of doing it in kick as well. boxing”.
Later, the athlete stated: “I continue teaching and training at my academy in the RC Kickboxing Gym, located at 354 Balcarce street in Luján. In boxing I am training in Maipú, in Lucero Martinez Box. Being used to fighting kick boxing, which is hands and legs, moving on to fight in boxing has its disadvantage, since when facing someone who is only working their hands they have a little more speed or are more used to working in a different way to what kick boxing is, but with the time I’ve been training, it wasn’t difficult for me, I felt comfortable and I really enjoyed it”.
“I wear 12 years training kick boxing and about 8 boxing simultaneously”, expressed Ramponi, to end with a message for young people who want to venture into contact sports: “Let them take the first step, look for a gym with teachers trained to teach, that every time they can go try a sport of contact enjoy it and take advantage of it and take it as a lifestyle to improve in every aspect that you can. I believe that practicing any sport is a way to get off the streets, it helps a lot in these times we are living and offers us a healthier life”, concluded.
