On his return to Italy, he trained with Massimiliano Cacciato at the Universal Gym in Racalmuto. After two more study trips to Thailand, he began his first amateur matches in the Kombat League Federation, winning the Italian MTA Kombat League title in Potenza Picena. Bavetta later won the Italian Professional Kombat League title in Racalmuto. He then won the World OneSongchai MTA Kombat League title in Tivoli[2].

On September 11, 2010, he made his professional debut in Birmingham against England’s Damien Trainor. In the following years he took part in the King's Cup in Thailand, and he trained at Luk Barn Yai and Sitsonpeenong[2].
