Pattee Mak: First off, I am looking forward to this fight and I’m sure each fans are as well. How did this fight come about?
Vendetti: I’m excited for this fight too. We were looking to get back in the ring. Then we got the call about this opportunity and accepted it. It all came together at the right time.
Pattee Mak: You both have fought the majority of your fights in New England. What is your game plan going into the bout?
Vendetti: My plan is to win.
Pattee Mak: Williams is 5’11 with a reach of 73” and you are 5’6” and a reach of 72”, will this be a problem for you?
Vendetti: I’ve never fought someone my height or with the same reach. This is nothing new so it shouldn’t be a problem.
Pattee Mak: How many rounds will this be?
Vendetti: It’s scheduled for 10.
Pattee Mak: Are you still being trained by Joe Ricciardi and assuming he is, how is he preparing you for this fight?
Vendetti: Joe’s been my trainer since the beginning. He’s an old school trainer so this camp is the same as the others, just using old school methods.
Pattee Mak: You haven’t fought in over a year. Was this because of Covid and was your training effected at all during the last year due to covid lockdowns?
Vendetti: I’ve been in the gym the whole time. No offer really came together. I was busy with other things outside of the ring but stayed active and in shape for when an offer did come.
Pattee Mak: Are you still being promoted by Murphy's boxing?
Vendetti: Yes, I’ve been with Murphy’s Boxing since 2016 and they have always gave me a good shake. I look forward to working with them in the future and possibly to the end of my career.
Pattee Mak: You are 31 years old, where would you like your boxing carrier to take you?
Vendetti: I enjoy fighting so I’m going to keep doing it. I will listen to my body and keep fighting until I decided I’ve had enough. I’m going to keep pushing myself and see how far I can go. I like challenges so I’m looking to fight the best.
Pattee Mak: Thank you so much for the interview. Tickets? Where can someone get tickets off of you if you are selling?
Vendetti: I am selling tickets and I’m looking forward to fighting in front of my fans. Tickets can be purchased through my manager, Artie DePinho.
