By Alexey Sukachev

Dmitry Pirog (20-0, 15 KOs), a former WBO middleweight champion of the world, is still not finished with his stagnating career. He gave a few tips about his possible future to Kubsport.ru. Pirog has been unable to overcome a reoccurring back injury.

的値l surely let you know officially if I知 finished with the sport. Right now I知 still recovering from a traumatic injury. I知 working diligently with a renowned specialist, whopreviously worked with Kostya Tszyu and Yevgeniy Kafelnikov (top Russian tennis player of the 90痴). If I recover and if I知 able to sustain those workloads and endure this physical pressure then I値l definitely have another fight. I think I値l fight next in the States; I知 aiming at the HBO date. Negotiations are under way now, said Pirog.

Dmitry Pirog, 33,first cameto stardom in July 2010, having stopped highly touted American prospect Daniel Jacobs in five rounds to capture a vacant WBO middleweight title. He has defended it thrice butvacated it due to the consequences of boxing politics. He was last seen in the ring two years ago, struggling to come back since then due to a chain of injuries.

PIROG in shape outboxe all middleweights out there but when you have a bad injury to the back like he had,well i have doubts he will recover!!!

[QUOTE=ColdBlooded]Pirog was a good fighter, but let's remember that his best win was Danny Jacbos. Pirog is arguably less proven than Quillin. He's still a guy I'd like to see more of, though.[/QUOTE] Very talented fight imo (see below). I don't think he's coming back from this injury though,...
