The contractual issues have now been resolved. A deal has been reached for a fight between IBO/IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs) and undefeated Polish challenger Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs).
In an earlier article on BoxingScene.com, promoter Mariusz Kolodziej of Global Boxing Promotions complained about certain clauses in the fight contract. The main clause he cited was a binding stipulation that obligates Wach to provide his three future fights, in the event he wins, to Klitschko's company K2 Promotions. Kolodziej was pondering the possibility of walking away from the fight and matching Wach against Bermane Stiverne of Canada in a WBC eliminator.
That issue has now been solved. The fight is now agreed upon for November 10th in Hamburg, Germany.
Kolodziej said: "I'm pleased to inform that after weeks of negotiations we have finally reached an agreement and came to terms that will satisfy both sides. I'd like to thank the entire Klitschko team and K2 Promotions for their cooperation."
