Krzysztof Zimnoch To Face Oliver McCall on May 18th

By Luke Furman

On May 18th, Polish heavyweight prospect Krzysztof Zimnoch (14-0-1, 11 KOs) will face former WBC world champion Oliver McCall (56-12, 37 KOs). This will be Zimnoch's first eight round bout and takes at Arena Hall in Legionowo, Poland. McCall, 47-years-old, has one of the best chins in heavyweight boxing and has never been stopped. In his last fight, he lost a decision to Francesco Pianetta, who challenges Wladimir Klitschko on May 4th. Although he is far along in age, the fight presents a big test for Zimnoch.

I think Zimnoch is better than Wawrzyk. He has good technical skills and will never be an easy fight for anyone.
