Wach Eyes New Promoter, Global Boxing Disputes

By Luke Furman

According to manager Ivaylo Gotzev, he is searching for a new promoter to handle the career of Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach (27-1, 15 KOs). Gotzev says the promotional contract with Mariusz Kołodziej of Global Boxing has concluded. Wach has been inactive since a November 2012 twelve round decision loss to heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. Following the match, Wach tested positive for anabolic steroids and he was suspended for several months. Since that time, Wach's career has been up in the air.

"Boxing is a job and each person needs money to live. The main thing for Wach is to finally come out to the ring and fight. It's nothing personal, but business is business. It's about Wach, whose career has stagnated. He is an outstanding fight and deserves to fight with the best," Gotzev said. 

"We sent Kołodziej information that the contract ended, because the promoter did not organize his fights. Of course, we recognize that [Mariusz Kołodziej] can go with this case to court, but in our opinion he does not win the case."

The CEO of Global Boxing disputes the claims by Gotzev.

"In my opinion Gotzev is telling fairy tales and has no idea about how things works and how to apply the law. I also sent him something in writing. The contract will be valid and effective over the next two years. To have the contract terminated, they would have to submit the case to court and get things done judicially and not on the basis of a letter," Kołodziej said.

This steroid cheat should have been banned for life.

Wach should fight again, he's a solid contender and exceeded expectations against Wladimir.
