Krzysztof Wlodarczyk Return Being Positioned For May 28

By Luke Furman

In March, former two-time cruiserweight world champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (50-3-1, 36 KOs), made his long awaited return to the ring as part of a card in Sosnowiec, Poland.

It was the first fight for "El Diabo" since losing his world title to current champion Grigory Drozd of Russia in September 2014. He came into that fight off a lengthy layoff.

Prior to that loss, Wlodarczyk was on a very solid run where he stopped for champion Giacobbe Fragomeni in six rounds in a bout held at the UIC Pavillion in Chicago and traveled over to Russia where he got off the floor to knock out Olympic gold medal winner Rakhim Chakhkiev in eight rounds.

The next fight for Wlodarczyk is being positioned for May 28th, also in Sosnowiec.

At 34-years-old, he still has time to get a lot of things done.

Last  month, Wlodarczyk needed only two rounds to blast out gate-keeper Valery Brudov (42-8, 28 KO), who lost three of his last four bouts - including a January decision loss to Noel Gevor in Germany.

Brudov went down in the second round from a series of punches and then his corner threw in the towel as the boxer appeared to be in trouble. A replay showed that Brudov may have injured his right knee when he fell.

In February his trainer Fedor Lapin said a fight against WBA interim-champion Beibut Shumenov (16-2, 10 KO) was possible for a date in late April - but Shumenov is staying away from that fight. They were set to fight last December, but Shumenov withdrew with an injury. Shumenov has been out of the ring since winning a decision over BJ Flores last July in Las Vegas.

"With all my heart I want to get back to the throne of being a world champion," Wlodarczyk said.

Cruiser weight is the best division. May is already full of bad as fights.
