Dmitry Pirog's Return Is Cancelled, No Date Set

By Alexey Sukachev

According to local sources in Krasnodar, Southern Russia, the return of former WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (20-0, 15 KOs), which was scheduled to take place in March, is once again cancelled. Pirog, who was forced to relinquish his WBO title in 2012 and is now rated #3 in the newest WBO's ranks, is said to be still sufferring from  severe problems with his back - the same problems he had experienced before the Javier Maciel fight in March 2011 and later after his most recent win over Nobuhiro Ishida in May 2012. Pirog, 32, missed the date of pre-planned recovery. No certain dates or plans regarding the career of the undefeated boxer, have been yet announced by his doctors or Pirog himself.

Since winning the WBO title (now stripped) in 2010, Pirog has only fought three times against the likes of Maciel, Gennady Martyrosyan, and Ishida... His management should have gotten him active and had him fought some of the the mid…

Sad. I was looking forward to his return even though his career is in shambles.

The middleweight division must be weak if Jacobs is in the mix. His opposition has generally been horrible and he's looked poor against every decent opponent that he's faced.
