Undefeated featherweight Gio Mioletti

Giovanni “Gio” Mioletti won a unanimous decision on April 28 at the UIC Pavilion, beating formerly undefeated William Hernandez in a battle of undefeated featherweights. It was his toughest test to date and, according to his trainer and head coach, John Nocita, “He did everything he had to do to beat a very tough opponent.”

Mioletti, from suburban Woodridge, was excited to be fighting in front of his hometown fans. “I was really looking forward to this bout because I knew I’d have family and friends in attendance,” he says.

The win moves Mioletti’s record to 7-0, and Nocita thinks this is just the beginning. “He’s got all the tools to be a champion,” Nocita says. “I’ve been managing young boxers for a long time and Gio has more potential than any other fighter his age I’ve ever seen.”

Under Nocita, Mioletti has learned to be quick on his feet and improve his reflexes. “Both Leo Randolph and Sugar Ray Seales told me he was the best prospect they’ve seen in the last 20 years.”
