Wach won't face Michael Grant

Promoter Mariusz Kolodziej of Global Boxing informed that his heavyweight fighter, Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KO), ranked #4 by WBC, won’t face an American veteran Michael Grant as previously planned. The Polish giant is planning to return to the ring in September. The name of his next opponent should be announced soon.

- Michael Grant definitely refused to fight Wach. Frankly speaking, we have been having problems for a few months to find a proper opponent for Mariusz. The problem is that top ten contenders don’t feel like fighting Wach. They would prefer to wait for a fight with Klitschko or a vacant title. A presumptive loss to Mariusz would close them the road to this – Kolodziej told

Besides, Kolodziej confirmed that the Pole is considered as a potential opponents for either Klitschko brothers.

- Yes, we have been talking for a few months about a fight between Mariusz and one of the brothers. Team Klitschko simultaneously negotiates with other fighters. However, Mariusz Wach is one of the most serious candidates – Kolodziej added.
