Pawel Wolak: I Saw Delvin's Best, He Hasn't Seen Mine!

By Ryan Burton
 
The verbal warfare has started back up on BoxingScene between junior middleweights Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez.  The two men face each other on December 3rd in a rematch of their 'Fight of the Year' contender. The fight happens on the undercard of the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito rematch at Madison Square Garden in New York.

On Tuesday, BoxingScene ran an article by Mitch Abramson in which Rodriguez said that he would target Wolak's right eye.  The orbital area of Wolak's aforementioned eye was grotesquely swollen in their first fight which took place about 3 months ago.  Rodriguez doesn't think that Wolak will have had enough time for his eye to completely heal when December 3rd rolls around.
 
Wolak was amused by Rodriguez's comments.  When advised of his rival's commentary, Wolak told BoxingScene.com - "Hang on, he is targeting my eye? (laughing)  I better sit down with (trainers) Tommy (Brooks) and (Gist) Terrific and talk about that."

The fighter of Polish decent figured that Rodriguez targeting his right eye was a no-brainer.  He also said that his trainer basically said it to his face at their press conference that took place last Saturday prior to Nonito Donaire's victory over Omar Narvaez in New York.
 
"I’m not Einstein but I kinda figured they would do that.  Not to mention Delvin’s trainer took his video camera to the press conference the other night and asking me to say something to my Dominican fans while he zoomed in on my eye.  He could have come up with something better than that (laughing).  Did he not think I didn’t know what he was doing?  Come on. They must think we are idiots."
 
Wolak absorbed a ton of punishment from Rodriguez in their first go round but didn't taste the canvas.  He feels that he took the Dominican fighter's best shot and that there isn't anything else Rodriguez can do to hurt him.  Wolak finished up our conversation by offering a piece of advise to his opponent.
 
"Delvin should probably target both of my eyes and see if he can then knock me out or stop me from coming after him and landing punch after punch because he couldn’t do it when I had one eye closed. I am not worried.  We know their plan.  But he is right, I am not coming to box.  I am coming after him every minute of every round and he better have some Red Bull in him because he’s gonna need it.  I saw the best Delvin, he hasn’t seen the best me.  He will on December 3rd."

Delvin will be sharper this time and gradually dismantle Wolak for a late mid round stoppage....

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;11336468]What I'm talking about when I say he's lucky, is not about how many rounds were won, it's about the ref & doctor allowing him to continue. They could have easily stopped the fight & no one would have been…

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;11336278]Now I like both these guys & they did have a FOTY candidate, but i think Wolak was fortunate to get a draw. I'm not going to be mad at him talking $hit though, because I know Rodriquez probably started…
