Wolak, Edwards Respond To Possible Dzinziruk Shot

By Lem Satterfield

New Jersey junior welterweight, Pawel Wolak, and his manager, Ivan Edwards, have responded to a recent report on BoxingScene.com that promoter Gary Shaw was headed to a Wednesday afternoon meeting with HBO officials in an effort to propose the next defense for Ukrainian southpaw junior middleweight Sergiy Dzinziruk, likely against Wolak.

Although Shaw appeared to favor the 29-year-old Wolak (29-1, 19 KOs) as an opponent for the 35-year-old Dzinziruk (37-1, 23 knockouts), Shaw said that other considerations included 30-year-old WBA junior middleweight super champ, Miguel Cotto (36-2, 29 KOs), and 25-year-old southpaw WBA regular titlist Austin Trout (22-0, 13 KOs).

Shaw later dismissed a fight between Dzinziruk and either Cotto or 29-year-old Vanes Martirosyan (29-0, 18 KOs), who, like Wolak and Cotto, is promoted by Top Rank Promotions, whose CEO is Bob Arum.

"I just read the Q&A and immediately spoke to Pawel Wolak, and he is very excited over the possibility of fighting Dzinziruk, the champ," said Edwards. "Pawel said, 'I'm hungrier than ever. Just give me the address, and I'll be there.' He just told me to make the fight."

Dzinziruk is possibly going to return in an HBO televised fight in the summer, this, after having moved up to
middleweight for his last ring appearance against 36-year-old, southpaw, WBC "emeritus" champion, Sergio Martinez (47-2-2, 26 KOs).

Dzinziruk was dropped five times before the fight was waved off in the eighth round. Dzinziruk was guaranteed a future date on HBO as part of his package to face Martinez, and could face Wolak, who is coming off the biggest win of his career -- a sixth-round stoppage of former WBA champion Yuri Foreman (28-2, eight KOs) also on March 12.

"I feel awesome. I want his belt. I want the title. I want to bring his belt back to Poland, and that's what drives me," said Wolak, who is of Polsh decent.

"All that I need is the green light, and I'm ready to go in," said Wolak. "I hope that they choose me, and that Mr. Arum and Top Rank can come to terms with Dzinziruk's promoter, Gary Shaw."
