Having won the WBC world super-middleweight crown in a vacant title match with Argentine Dario Walter Matteoni, and made his first defence against American Ron Essett, Galvano's second defence was against tough Paraguayan Juan Carlos Giminez (38-4-3) in Marino, 13 miles Southeast of Rome.

Never a big puncher, Galvano (18-1-2) won a unanimous points decision to retain his title. He would lose the title in his next defence against Nigel Benn.
