Jirov planning comeback

Former cruiserweight champion and 1996 Olympic gold medalist Vassiliy Jirov (37-3-1, 31 KOs) is returning to the ring for the first time in over two years with the intention of regaining his cruiserweight world championship. The 35-year-old former champion is currently in training for a proposed September 17 bout at the Woodland Marriott in Woodland Hills, California. A fan favorite worldwide for his relentless come-forward attack and intense body punching ability, Jirov is now reunited with manager Ivaylo Gotzev. The plan, according to Gotzev, is to take some tune-up fights before making an attempt to regain the cruiserweight title. Jirov is training at the 360 Fitness center in Reseda, California with trainer Shadeed Suluki. His opponent is currently TBA.
