By Luke Furman

Apparently WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (49-2-1, 35 KOs) is looking for a bigger purse for a planned defense of the title against Grigory Drozd  (38-1, 27 KOs) on September 27th in Moscow. According to reports in Poland, the champion has yet to agree to the financial terms and wants a bump in his purse, which the other side is not willing to satisfy. There is some fear that Wlodarczyk will withdraw from the match. The co-feature of the card will have another Polish/Russian battle, with undefeated Pawel Kolodziej (33-0, 18 KOs) challenging WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs).

Wlodarczyk will get what he's asking for if he fights Roy Jones Jr. Which he probably should be facing Jones anyway. Jones is way better than Diablo's previous opponents. Roy still is relevant in the boxing game. Hands down, if you compare Jones's record vs BHop's they have nearly the same amount...
