Despite rumors and innuendo to the contrary, Chicago-based promoter Dominic Pesoli of 8 Count Productions and IBF #1, WBO #2 and WBC #7-ranked light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara have no other intentions than to continue working together.
“I am with Dominic Pesoli and 8 Count Productions. I have always been with 8 Count Productions and I will continue with them for the foreseeable future,” said Fonfara.
Echoed Pesoli, “Andrzej and I have been together a long time and we are excited to be headed to his first world title fight as a team.”
Responding to a fringe group claiming a promotional allegiance with Fonfara, the 25-year-old “Polish Prince” is clear: “Disregard any announcements you may read from anyone other than Dominic Pesoli and his group. They are false.”
Fonfara (25-2, 14 KOs) is a native of Warsaw, Poland, and a longtime Chicago fan favorite. He is currently riding a 15-bout unbeaten streak including victories over former world champions Gabriel Campillo and Glen Johnson.
“I have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with my team, including Dominic Pesoli as my promoter and that is who will stay as we make our final push to the world championship.”
Pesoli went on to say; “promoting Andrzej into the star he has become has been one of my most enjoyable accomplishments as a promoter. I can’t wait to celebrate with him after each future triumph.”
Fonfara’s next fight will be announced shortly.
