Art of Boxing Magazine announced that Canelo (Cinnamon) Alvarez and Sergio Martinez are two of the five fighters selected by boxing expert and magazine founder Vinny Furlani, to be included in a review detailing each of their boxing techniques. As the premiere source for boxing fans and fighters, the publication will be featuring an examination in the upcoming issue, to be released by July 31, 2013.

The anticipated assessment will detail how professional Middleweight boxers Canelo Alvarez, Sergio Martinez, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Andre Ward and Marco Antonio Rubio perform in relation to the ‘10-Point Strategic Boxing System’. The revolutionary method developed by Furlani, is based on the 'old school' techniques learned from former Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time World Heavyweight Champion, Floyd Patterson.

Though not granting any official rankings to the mentioned fighters, Vinny notes Andre Ward’s fighting style as the closest to the 10-Point System that marks a complete boxer. He also compliments Martinez’s defensive moves but criticizes Rubio’s punching style and Chavez Jr.’s undisciplined behavior. Vinny even reveals his favorite of all five contenders – Canelo (Cinnamon) Alvarez.

“Although my reviews can be conceived as controversial, I stand behind the 'old school' boxing technique I continue to see lacking, though necessary to succeed in the ring,” attested Vinny. He then adds, “I am convinced my advice and perspective can help improve the game of many fighters, potentially transforming a very good champion into a legendary boxer.”

Taking the ‘10-Point Strategic Boxing System’ a step further, Vinny Furlani and Tracy Harris Patterson will unite in Newburgh, New York, on July 25 and 26, to record several boxing training videos. The series, entitled “Training Like A Champ”, will feature essential methods included in the system, and is scheduled for completion by September 1, 2013. The finished videos will be announced and made available for purchase at

“As a professional boxer, I know boxing demands more from a fighter than just natural talent and physical strength. It’s only when effective techniques play a major role in that combination that you see real winners make history,” said Patterson. “Having learned the ultimate ‘old school’ boxing techniques from my father and master [Floyd Patterson], we are eager to demonstrate in video each step of the system, preparing aspiring talents to become real champions.”

Vinny uncovers each individual step of the 10-Point Strategic Boxing System in every issue of Art of Boxing Magazine, in a section titled, ‘Vinny’s Corner’. This month, Point 4, The Hook to the Body, will be introduced. Vinny admits this was the point that propelled him to create the boxing training system which, when executed in proper form, gives a fighter the best chance of succeeding.

In addition, the ‘Featured Celebrity’ section of the iPad magazine will feature historic father-son boxing teams, including Floyd and Tracy Harris Patterson. The article will elaborate on how that successful partnership led Tracy to win the Featherweight World Championship title on June 23, 1992, and list the accomplishments of other father-son duos as well.

Continuing to promote the ‘old school’ boxing techniques he so firmly believes in, Vinny has secured an interview with Tim Palesky, host and producer of ‘KnockOut TV’. The show is exclusive to Cablevision customers, and the episode featuring Vinny Furlani is scheduled to air at 10:00 p.m. on Friday, August 16th, in Bergen, Passaic and Morris Counties, New Jersey. For a complete KnockOut TV airing schedule, contact Tim Palesky at KnockOutTV(at)aol(dot)com.
