Pirog Injures Left Shoulder, N'jikam April Fight on Hold

By Ruslan Chikov

An unfortunate left shoulder injury will postpone a possible April defense for WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs). He was going to face former WBA-interim champion Hassan N'Dam N'jikam (26-0, 17KOs) of France on April 6th. The fight has now been placed on hold until further notice.

"I want this fight because it's going to be very interesting. Unfortunately, it will not be held on April 6th. Just two days ago, I slipped and fell on the street right and hurt my left shoulder. Everyone knows about the current elements in Gelendzhik - hurricane, ice. An evaluation showed that my recovery will take about four weeks. I can not even run. If N'jikam is willing to wait four weeks, then we can sit down at the negotiating table. I would love to fight him and neither of us has a loss. If they want this fight, we are ready to sit at the table and negotiate. I will gladly give this fight to the Russian audience. This will be an uncompromising battle between two undefeated fighters," Pirog said.
