Fonfara-Miller Set For December 6th at UIC in Chicago

IBF #1 Light Heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 14 KOs) has agreed to a very dangerous test for his next ring appearance on Friday, December 6, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Fighting in one of the two main bouts of the Ulrich Knockout Promotions, Warriors Boxing and 8 Count Productions event, entitled "World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3", Fonfara will face La Habra, California, via Colombia KO artist Samuel Miller (26-7, 23 KOs).

34-year-old Miller is a former WBC United States (USNBC) Middleweight Champion who has faced a long list of top contenders. The dangerous puncher carries a 70% KO percentage against better-than-average competition.

"That's how Andrzej is," said Dominic Pesoli of 8 Count Productions. "He could have sat and waited for his title fight, but he wants to stay busy and he wants the kind of fights that will test him. A puncher like Samuel Miller is never more than one shot away from winning a fight and Andrzej knows that. This is a very dangerous fight for him while he has so much at stake that he wins."

25-year-old Fonfara, Chicago's Polish Prince, is currently the IBF #1, WBO #2 and WBC #7-ranked contender. A native of Warsaw, Poland, and a long-time Chicago fan favorite since turning professional in 2006, he is riding high on a 15-bout unbeaten streak and known for his fight-ending power. Fonfara most recently stopped former world champion Gabriel Campillo on August 16 to reach the mandatory contender position in the IBF.

a good matchup on paper...as 4 the main go I see Fragomeni losing earlier than the last time...@ almost 45 he's brings little & is overmatched greatly in size, reach and ability.......

I doubt he gets to fight with Hopkins.... he is #2 in the WBO ratings though..... so Kovalev is possible.
