Italy's Guido Vianello (4-0, 4 KO) will face Cassius Anderson (7-1, 3 KO) on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs Otto Wallin Saturday in Las Vegas.

Who?

Trained by the legendary Kevin Barry, Vianello was a decorated amateur and represented Italy at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, boxing as a Super Heavyweight (+91 kg).

It's obvious people who know boxing have high hopes for the 6'6" 25 year old Italian who debuted in 2018 and will be fighting for the fourth time this year.

"The first sport I practiced was tennis, but one day in 2009 while I was going to train, I saw a gym," said Vianello via his website.

"I became intrigued and saw some guys who were practicing boxing. It was a love at first sight. I did not wait a moment and put down the tennis bag I immediately put on the gloves."

In an interview last year with RING TV, Vianello, who was also a police officer back in Italy, discussed his style.

“I am a mix between [Wladimir] Klitschko and Muhammad Ali. I move in the ring and I am aggressive. I want to box and fight."

He also told RINGTV he's sparred with Tyson Fury and believes he's three years away from fighting on that level.

Keep an eye on this guy.
