Celebrative Sticker #77: DANTE CANE’!

The legend of Italian boxing and Semper Avanti Bologna is the Celebrative Sticker #77 solidarity sticker!

Dante Canè was born in Bologna on 5 June 1940, he was known by all as the Good Giant. 17 times Italian heavyweight champion in the 60s and 70s, the luckiest saw him fight at the Paladozza in Piazza Azzarita, the very lucky were also able to hear his name echo in New York, at Madison Square Garden, temple of world boxing. As a winner.

A butcher next to his father, champion with Semper Avanti of Bologna, he alternated hard work behind the shop counter with even harder work in the ring. He was trained by Leone Blasi, also coach of Cavicchi, another boxing monument.

A career lasting over 20 years, punctuated by a period in the USA as a loved and respected boxer. The dream of becoming European champion does not come true, partly due to bad luck, partly due to having fought with a certain Joe Bugner.

Dante’s life was not just the ring, but also his delicatessen and above all his family, Paola, his beloved wife and children Federico and Daniela. His love for his city, for sport and for boxing remained strong and indestructible and the people reciprocated. The heart of the Gentle Giant beat for the last time on May 5, 2000, right near his shop, too early to leave but never late to remember him and Bologna has never forgotten him.

Thanks to the Canè family and Semper Avanti Bologna for the photographic archive and collaboration.

The solidarity sticker will be presented as an absolute preview at the Bologna Boxing Night, Paladozza, 5 April 2024, where some other protagonists of the Celebrative Sticker solidarity stickers, Pamela Noutcho Sawa, Biancamaria Tessari and Dima Tonyshev, will enter the ring!

FOR THE “ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA” PROJECT!

With this solidarity sticker it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects
