History knows many examples of falsification and speculation. Attributing to oneself somebody else’s merits and forgetting brilliancy of geniuses has became a social norm since long. That is the way it was, and always will be. Nevertheless, from time to time certain events do happen, that put everything in its place.
This incredible story began in Ukraine, where Ph.D. Oleg Maltsev an extraordinary scientist, established his own scientific base in 2009, a student of Lieutenant-General Viktor Pavlovich Svetlov, a follower of outstanding Soviet geniuses – lieutenant-general, academician Alexei Samuilovich Yakovlev and academician Grigory Semenovich Popov. This article is not going to be about him, but about the fact that, owing to his unique research, it was possible to restore the actual history and origin of one of the most mysterious and mystical figures in XX century boxing Cus D’Amato. That very American coach with South Italian roots, who nurtured three world champions: Floyd Patterson, Jose Torres and Mike Tyson.
“I must say that the last scientific expedition to Southern Italy was one of the most difficult in 5 years of special department existence , which is engaged in researching the technology of the power of our ancestors and the real history of mankind. Needless to say, as a scientist, even before the expedition there were reasons to assume that the non-compromising style of Cus D’Amato has Spanish roots. However, in reality our expedition was to “nowhere”. As I have told before, our goal is to write an honest book, in other words, a scientific work about the origin of D’Amato’s style. But I could not even dream about the fact we would be able to make so many discoveries and make such a gift to all Spaniards who respect their culture and traditions. ” Ph.D. Oleg Maltsev
It should be mentioned that Oleg Maltsev is not only a candidate of psychological sciences, but a Professor of Destreza as well, and Grand Maestro of the Spanish Chivalric school “Destreza Achinech” which is located on the island of Tenerife.
Every self-respecting Spaniard knows about the irrevocable influence the Spanish Crown has had on the culture and traditions of Southern Italy. However, today this topic is unpopular among Italians. Most of the residents of modern Italy remember the great contribution of the Aragon dynasty, Charles V, and the Spanish Bourbons with great difficulty. The history of the Apennine peninsula for them, begins in 1861 and the foundation of the Kingdom of Italy. However, thanks to the work of three research institutes with the guidance of Ph.D. Oleg Maltsev, it was possible to categorically scientifically prove that the roots of Cus D’Amato’s style are in the Neapolitan style of Spanish fencing.
During the scientific expedition to Apulia, Cus D’Amato managed to restore the genealogical tree, which goes back to the Spanish chivalric order which was located in the town of Toritto in the province of Bari. By the way, the influence of the Spaniards on this region was imprinted not only in classical history, but also on the walls of houses and on temple architecture of the region.
As a result of the analysis carried out by the staff of “The Memory Institute”, “Scientific Research Institute of world martial art traditions study and criminalistic research of weapon handling”, and the International Fate-analysis Community, the Spanish roots of Cus D’Amato’s style were proved. During the expedition there were unique artifacts and documents received from the state archives of Bari, directly pointing to the fact that Cus D’Amato by maternal line is directly related to the Spanish Chivalric Order, and is a direct descendant of the Rosato genus – the second line of the Neapolitan style of Spanish fencing which originates from maestro Francesco Villardito
According to Ph.D. Oleg Maltsev, the book “Lighting rod that strikes faster than lightning itself” which will have documents, artifacts and eight lines of scientific analysis will be released in the first half of 2018 and will be freely available to fans of boxing and devotees of the true history of Spain.
