Bozzano turned pro in 1957 and won his first 25 fights, including a win over Joey Maxim, before being KO'd by Hans Kalbfell in 1960. The following year he was upset by Gerhard Zech. Zech, who had only eight paid bouts to his credit and no amateur experience, figured to be another pushover. But Bozzano was obviously ring-rusty and in the second round the Berlin southpaw slammed a hefty right-hander to the Italian's ribs. He threw a left hook at Bozzano's chin and the Italian crumpled to the canvas, out cold.In 1962, Bozzano took on Santo Amonti for the Italian heavyweight title. Bozzano played into Amonti's hands by carrying out repeated attacks at close quarters instead of relying on his superior reach and boxing skill. No knockdowns were scored but Bozzano soaked up a welter of punches by the third round that he was obliged to raise his arms in defeat, completely groggy.
