Wlodarczyk Eyes Bigger Purse, Drozd Bout in Doubt?
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).
