Buglioni went up against the experienced fighter Joe Rea, an Irishman with a 50/50 record of 8 wins equalled with 8 losses. A natural middleweight rather than super middleweight it would be fair to say. Buglioni starts fast, using his greater size and stature to hold the centre of the ring and push Rea onto the ropes with bullying jabs.

After blasting away another opponent in the 1st round, it was decided Jody Meikle the light heavyweight hard man would be brought in to test Buglioni’s stamina and resolve over 6 rounds, which is precisely what he did, with a nasty cut and black eye to reiterate Buglioni’s punching power and Meikle’s durability.
