Krzysztof Wlodarczyk Return Pegged For March 4, in Sosnowiec

By Luke Furman

Former two-time world champion cruiserweight Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (49-3-1, 35 KOs) is set to return on March 4 as part of a card in Sosnowiec, Poland, according to Polsat Sport's Mateusz Borek.

It will be the first fight for "El Diabo" since losing his world title to current champion Grigory Drozd of Russia in September 2014. He was coming into this 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 about 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.

At 34-years-old, he still has time to get a lot of things done. He was recently mentioned as a potential opponent for newly crowned WBA cruiserweight champion Beibut Shumenov but the fight never went through.

Some of his other wins include Steve Cunningham, Danny Green, Francisco Palacios, and others. His career was plagued by a lot of health issues and his pro run times, appeared to be jeopardy. The boxer works with Warriors Boxing, who also work with another popular Polish cruiserweight, undefeated WBO world champion Krzysztof Glowacki.
