Pawel Wolak: I'm Positive That I Can Beat Sergiy Dzinziruk

By Lem Satterfield

New Jersey junior middleweight contender, Pawel Wolak, would welcome a chance to face southpaw WBO titlist, Sergiy Dzinziruk, his manager, Ivan Edwards, told BoxingScene.com.

"He said, 'I can beat him. I'm positive that I can beat him. I want to fight him. I don't care when or where, just give me seven weeks to train and I will give him some more bad news,'" Edwards said that Wolak told him during a telephone conversation on Thursday.

"Wolak said, 'I feeel stronger than ever, and I'm ready for prime time,'" Wolak told Edwards. "'If Dzinziruk wants to call me out, then I will accommodate him. It's always been my dream to fight for a title, and Dzinziruk is a very accomplished boxer. But this is my time.'"

Wolak (29-1, 19 knockouts) and Edwards were responding to a report by Rick Reeno of BoxingScene.com during which Dzinziruk (37-1, 23KOs) had expressed interest in defending his title against Wolak.

Dzinziruk is possibly going to return in an HBO televised fight in the summer. A meeting will be held in the near future to finalize his next appearance on the network.

"I was shocked to hear that Sergiy Dzinziruk wants to fight Pawel Wolak. After I came out of shock, I called Pawel and I said, you won't believe this," said Edwards.

"Then, I explained what I had heard and read," said Edwards. "Wolak asked what I thought, and before I could utter three words, he interrupted me."

In his last ring appearance, earlier this month, Dzinziruk moved up to middleweight to challenge southpaw, WBC "emeritus" champion, Sergio Martinez (47-2-2, 26 KOs).

Promoted by Gary Shaw, Dzinziruk suffered his first loss after being dropped five times before the fight was waved off in the eighth round.

As part of his package to fight Martinez, Dzinziruk was guaranteed a future date on HBO. Wolak is coming off the biggest win of his career, a sixth-round stoppage of former WBA champion Yuri Foreman (28-2, eight KOs).

"I just hope that Mr. Arum [Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum] and Top Rank can put this one together with his people," said Edwards. "Wolak is ready to march. He also said that when he wins the title, he wants to bring the belt back to his home town in Poland."

Very good match-up. Hopefully Wolak lines himself up for a title-shot pretty soon, it will be well deserved.
