This week, I’m focussing on another athlete to watch for at the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, but in a sport we having spent too much time on – boxing. This week’s knockout Sports Stud is 30-year-old (almost 31) Clemente Russo from Italy and he’s definitely someone we’d like to get into the ring with… only not to fight ;)

The heavyweight boxer competed in the 2008 Olympics where he won the silver medal, losing the final round and so the competition to Rakhim Chakkhiev. Needless to say he has a pretty good chance of getting a medal – perhaps even gold, at this year’s Olympics.

The nice thing about gathering pictures for a boxer is the weigh-ins in their underwear :) I’m pretty sure Russo is sponsored by Dolce & Gabbana so in underwear and fully dressed, he looks super hot. Enjoy the pictures below!

So beefy! See what I mean though – he’s just as hot with and without clothing.

Here’s one weigh-in pic :) I love his tattoo too!

My… what a big… trophy you have…

The stupid scale is in the way ;)

He definitely has that Italian Stallion look going on… giddy up!

Grr, he looks especially hot in these photos!

We’ll finish off with a close up. Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
