LIKEABLE Enfield man Frank Buglioni challenges unbeaten Fedor Chudinov for the WBA super-middleweight belt on Saturday (September 26) at Wembley. In advance of this, we asked the big ticket-seller YOUR questions.
How would you respond to people who say you aren’t deserving of a world title shot after drawing with a domestic-level opponent [Lee Markham] in May?

I think the harder you work, the luckier you get. That’s the motto I live by. It’s a world title opportunity, so what do they want me to do? Turn it down? Then they’d say I’m a coward. I think you’re going to get criticism whatever you do, so you just have to do things to the best of your ability, and do what you think is right. That’s what I do. I know for a fact that the Chudinov fight had been offered to other people, and they turned it down. I also know that a lot of top domestic fighters in the UK have turned world title fights down in the past. I can only do what I think is right, and when a world title opportunity comes a long, I take it with both hands.
How does it feel being one of Frank Warren’s star fighters?

It’s a great honour. A lot of people have doubted myself, they’ve doubted Frank, but you can’t doubt us both – he’s got me a world title shot, so either I’m deserving of the shot, or he’s a great promoter. So it speaks for itself.
