Palacios Using Siaca To Prepare For Wlodarczyk Clash

By Rey Colon

Undefeated Francisco "The Wizard" Palacios continues to train at full steam for his April 2 brawl in Poland against the tough cruiserweight champion of the WBC, Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, which is going to be held in the city of Bydgoszcz.

The Bayamon boxer who is based in Florida, has had three weeks of hard training and still has about seven to go. According to reports, he plans to add former 168-pound champion, Manny Siaca III, to his group of sparring partners.

Wlodarczyk, 29 years old, is 6'1 and has a record of 44-2-1 with 32 knockouts, while Palacios, 33 years old and 6'2", displays a record of 20-0 with 13 knockouts.

The Puerto Rican has improved his performances by leaps and bounds did not hesitate in accepting a deal to travel to the backyard of the Polish champion to fight for the belt and has said repeatedly that he will return to Puerto Rico with the title, while becoming only the third Puerto Rican to be a champion at cruiserweight, with the other two being Carlos 'Sugar' Leon and Ossie 'Jaws' Ocasio.
