Grzegorz Proksa: Sebastian Zbik Likely Going To Be Next

By Luke Furman

This past Saturday, the most impressive performance came from undefeated middleweight Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19KOs), who simply demolished former IBF champion Sebastian Sylvester to capture to capture the EBU title. The fight was so one-sided that even Proksa himself was surprised with ease of his victory.

"I have to admit that I repared myself for a very hard fight. Sylvester is one of the world's top middleweight athletes. So I thought a heavy test was waiting for me, and a fierce fight for twelve rounds. Fortunately, it was a nice disappointment," Proksa said.

There are a lot of fight in the middleweight division, but Proksa believes his next opponent is likely going to be former WBC champion Sebastian Zbik (30-1, 10KOs), who is currently the mandatory challenger to the EBU title.

"In the past we tried to get fights, with boxers like Ryan Rhodes, and Matthew Macklin, but unfortunately they refused. They were European champions, at the time. They chose the easier fights. But when we became the mandatory challenger, nobody had the right to refuse us. Sylvester took the fight, and for that I am very grateful to him for - because thanks to him I was able to showcase myself to a wider audience," Poksa said.

"At my weight there are many outstanding boxers. But for right now I will probably go against the official challenger [to my title], Germany's Sebastian Zbik. I think this fight is the most realistic for the near future."

Proksa will win decisively, unlike that fraud Chavez who got a bull[COLOR="Black"]s[/COLOR]hit gift decision against Zbik.

Zbik fought on the level against Chavez. If Proksa wins here, which I expect he will -- another name's getting blacklisted.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;11245354]Why do you always criticize European boxers like Zbik, but never American-promoted fighters like Chavez? Would Chavez ever go to Germany to defend defend his title? No. Will he ever fight a top middleweight like Pirog or Martinez? No. But…

[QUOTE=rochemback;11245131]Proksa going for the german market and eliminating their champs / former champs, I like it. :D There's a lot of exposure, lots of money to make and I'd fancy him against most of them. Although I like Zbik as…
