The 22nd of June will mark the return of light heavyweight Andrzej Fonfara (21-2, 12 KOs). The Polish boxer will face Cornelius "Da Beast" White (18-1, 15 KOs), ranked at number ten by the WBC. The event will take place at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago - and televised by ESPN's Friday Night Fights. The fight was contracted for 10 rounds.
"We had several options to choose from, but we chose Chicago - mainly because of the opportunity to show Andrzej to a wider audience in the United States. Andrzej has already begun his preparations. He promises to make a good and exciting fight," said Marek Fonfara, manager and brother of the Polish contender.
