Wolak To Latimore: If a Network Wants It, I'm In There

By Ryan Burton
 
Last week junior middleweight contender Deandre "The Bull" Latimore reached out to BoxingScene.com to call out fellow contender, Pawel Wolak who was coming off of a fight of the year type of performance against Delvin Rodriguez that ended in a draw.  Latimore feels that his style would mesh perfectly with Wolak and that the result would be another fan friendly fight.
 
Wolak advised Boxingscene.com that his team had five or six options for his next opponent that his team was mulling over.  The fighter of Polish descent doesn't think that a network would pick up a fight against Latimore but if a fair offer was made that he wouldn't have a problem fighting the slugger from St. Louis.
 
"He is a very tough fighter. He deserves respect in the division and he has mine.  The problem is he and me on a card probably isn’t sellable to the networks right now, where other guys on my list would be. If he can convince the networks we are a sellable event and can get the networks to pay the fair market value for me to fight him, I am in," said Wolak.
 
Wolak plans on continuing to provide exciting fights for the enjoyment of his fans.  He thinks a fight between himself and Latimore may be more realistic down the road.  Latimore may have to win a higher profile fight or two to make that happen.
 
 "My sole responsibility is to entertain the fans and any fight I am in will do that so now we will just see what my promoter, the networks and I can agree on. But he deserves respect in my division for sure, it is just not the right time for us to get it on," Wolak told BoxingScene.com

It would be The raging bull vs The Bull. Nice.

This would be a really good fight for both guys. I saw Latimore on the under card of Ortiz-Berto. He was fighting a bum but you could tell he was skilled. Hard puncher too.
