Nickname: "The Cobra"

   Youngstown, Ohio's Ken "The Cobra" Sigurani turned professional on July 22, 1994.  After a very nice amateur career going 44-4 and winning a Golden Gloves Title, he stepped into the paid ranks with a 1st round tko over fellow Ohioan Charles Miller.

   Kenny ran his record to 15-0 with 6 knockouts and was given a shot at the WBF Welterweight Title against  Bobby Elkins (22-4, 18 ko's).  It was a great night for Sigurani who stopped the defending champion in the 9th round.

   After a solid non-title win against Alex Quiroga, Sigurani successfully defended his title against undefeated Robert "Push-up" Frazier (13-0, 10 ko) with an impressive unanimous decision over 12 tough rounds.

   In his next fight, he tasted defeat for the first time, being stopped in the first round by former IBF Featherweight World Champion Antonio Rivera (34-12-2, 30 ko's).

   Kenny bounced back with a streak of 4 straight victories before ending his career with bouts against two Hall-of-Fame boxing legends - being stopped by Julio Cesar Chavez in round 3 and his final professional boxing match Oct. 23, 1998 dropping a decision to Hector "Macho" Camacho on scores of 97-93 x 2 and 96-94.

   Kenny "the Cobra" Sigurani ended his pro career with an excellent record of 22 wins, 3 defeats, with 8 knockouts.
