TORONTO (September 29, 2011) – Romanian welterweight Victor Lupo has done everything possible to get undefeated World Boxing Council (“WBC”) International Welterweight Champion Phil “The Italian Sensation” Lo Greco into a fight.. The clock is ticking, however, Lo Greco has refused to sign a deal to fight mandatory challenger Lupo.

Lupo (19-102, 9 KOs), who lives in Toronto, defeated former world champion Junior Witter (37-3-2) by a 10-round decision last February for the vacant WBC International Silver title to become the mandatory challenger.Lupo’s promoter, Hennessey Sports, won a purse bid but Lo Greco (22-0, 12 KOs) has thus far been reluctant to accept the fight offer.

“Lo Greco doesn’t want any part of me,” WBC #21 rated Lupo said.“He’s a real tough guy, huh, talking trash on Twitter. I don’t know what his problem is but, maybe, he needs a heart transplant?I’m from Romania but I’m proud that Canada is my home.He’s from here but doesn’t respect Canadian boxing fans enough to even fight here.He only wants to fight in Italy

“I worked very hard to become the mandatory challenger.Hey, we even agreed to fight in his hometown.I’d rather fight him for the belt because I know I’ll beat him. But, I can’t make him fight me; it’s all on Lo Greco.”
