Francisco Palacios Back in Line For Krzysztof Wlodarczyk

San Juan, PR - Bayamon's Francisco "The Wizard" Palacios (20-1, 13 KO's) and manager/coach, Joshua Aguilar, were advised by Don King Productions that the World Boxing Council (WBC) is going to keep him in a mandatory position to cruiserweight world champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (45-2-1,32 KO's). On April 2 in Bydgoszcz, Poland, Palacios los a controversial split decision, with scores of 115-113 for Palacios, 116-112 and 118-112 for Wlodarczyk. After the fight, Palacios and his team filed a protest with the WBC.

"I'm still the mandatory, but I wish it was immediate rematch because I want to fight him. Anyway, I'm super happy and I have to always thank God, the people who always supported me and Don King for following up on the protest, because without them this would not have happened," Palacios said.
