Wolak: Donaire Could Have Opened Him Up With the Body

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene recently caught up with Pawel Wolak who was in New York this past weekend to officially announce his junior middleweight rematch with Delvin Rodriguez that takes place on December 3rd on the undercard of the Miguel Cotto versus Antonio Margarito pay-per-view event. 

Wolak was also in attendance for Nonito Donaire's shut out victory over Omar Narvaez that took place at Madison Square Garden. After feeling Donaire's power early, the Argentine went into survival much to the dismay of the crowd who frequently booed the fight. Wolak feels that if Donaire went to the body more frequently that he may have been able to open Narvaez for a big punch later in the fight.

"I thought there were some opportunities for Nonito to go to the body with a couple of his devastating left hooks. That could have opened up Navarez up top for his knockout punch," stated Wolak.

When asked about the booing and the chants of "This is bullsh*t" by the New York fight fans,  Wolak said, "Like I tweeted, if I didn't fight my style I would never fight here in NYC. They demand excitement or they get very upset."

The all action fighter told Boxingscene.com that when he fights his first goal is to always make sure the fans are entertained.  He went on to say that whether he wins or loses he wants to make sure the fans enjoy his fights. 

"People love me, people hate me. I got no problem what people think about me as a fighter. My problem will be if they ever say they were not entertained during one of my fights or that I gave less than 150%. If that happens, than no matter what the scorecard says, I lost."

[QUOTE=drunken_master;11333349]I would have been upset too if the main event was someone only popular in argentina with a high guard all night and the other guy is not popular in the east coast and he comes out to wear all…

The one time in the fight he started focusing on the body, he got warned to keep his punches high and Narvaez's corner b*tched about low blows.

Donaire already answered this suggestion. No matter what he did....Narvaez would not open up.
