Undefeated WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs) of Russia will return to the ring on May 1 in Moscow, according to his promoters. Pirog last fought on September 25 in Krasnodar, when he stopped mandatory challenger Gennady Martirosyan within ten rounds. Pirog's handlers plan to match him with a highly ranked contender in the WBO's top ten.

One possible opponent being mentioned by Pirog's handlers is undefeated contender Max Bursak (24-0, 10KOs).

[QUOTE=Freedom.]N'Jikam has no other fights scheduled, so he should take the May 1 date. But he's been inactive, I don't think he wants to fight anymore.[/QUOTE] I'm guessing he's going to take a fight in April like originally planned exactly because he's been so inactive. He can't be waitin...
