Description

Boxing career His first boxing match took place on the Venus Stadium in Bucharest and his opponent was the experienced Italian boxer Severio Gizzo. Mitu won by knockout in round five.[2] His second fight was against former Romanian heavyweight champion Dumitru Pavelescu, which Mitu won again by knockout in the first round. The only losses in his fighting career were against the former world champion Primo Carnera and the American boxer George Godfrey. After these matches his manager Umberto Lancia directed him to more important tournaments in Europe (in Prague and Paris) where Mitu fought the German—French boxer Bergman and the fight ended in a draw. This was Mitu's last fight as a professional boxer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.html?curid=21324389
