Wolak Eyes 12/3 Return, Against Soto-Karass, Rodriguez

By Mike Coppinger

Sources close to junior middleweight Pawel Wolak have advised that Wolak is likely to return to the ring Dec. 3 on the undercard of Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito 2, versus fellow Top Rank fighter Jesus Soto-Karass or with a rematch against Delvin Rodriguez.

Just last Friday, Wolak waged war with Rodriguez in a fight of the year candidate on ESPN 2, the fight declared a majority draw. Soto-Karass (24-6-3, 16 KOs) is an all-action fighter coming off two losses to Mike Jones at welterweight.

A guy like Wolak who has little power, speed, and technique, makes up for it with best heart and stamina in the business. Soto or Devlin better bring it because you can bet this guy will be back again and…
