Dmitry Pirog Says He Will Soon Resume His Career

By Ruslan Chikov

Former middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (20-0, 15KOs) is ready to resume his career. Pirog's activity has taken a big hit due to injuries. He gave up his WBO title to accept a fight with WBA champion Gennady Golovkin, but withdrew after injuring his back. The problems continued to bother him in the comings months. He last fought in May 2012, winning a twelve round decision over Nobuhiro Ishida.

Pirog says the injuries are now fully headled and he plans to travel over to the United States to discuss his future. Pirog was promoted in the United States by Banner Promotions, but he never disclosed on who he plans to meet with.
