According to WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (46-2, 33KOs), a rematch with Puerto Rico's Francisco Palacios (21-1, 13KOs) is being negotiated for a date in September. The champion won a close split decision over Palacios last April in Poland. The WBC saw some issues with the scoring, as many felt Palacios had done enough to win, and ordered the two boxers to face each other again.
Palacios returned last November and won an eight round decision over Joell Godfrey, while Wlodarczyk also came back in November and knocked out Danny Green in eleven rounds.
