Neven Pajkic and Greg Kielsa do it again as the two heavyweights headline the next chapter of Rumble at Rama set for Wednesday June 30th. Orion Sports Management confirmed Monday that Pajkic (12-0 5KO) who won virtually every round in the first contest and handed Kielsa (11-1 5KO) his defeat will waste no time in getting it on a second time. Kielsa will try to become the first Canadian heavyweight to regain his title on a rematch in almost 20 years.
Ken Lakusta was able to turn the tables on Tony Morrison in 1990, recapturing the title but then promptly lost it next time out to Conroy Nelson, somebody he had beaten five years previous to capture it for the first time.
“I want my belt back,” said Kielsa who claimed he wasn’t himself the first time around of the Canadian title he held from November of 2008 until losing it to Pajkic.
“These guys have real ability, and bright futures,” said promoter Allan Tremblay. “They’ve already showed us they’re willing to go to war. This could be the fight that puts Canadian heavyweight boxing back on the map.”
Undefeated champion Neven Pajkic indicated he has no intention of letting his foot off the accelerator in the rematch, “You saw in March that I put everything I had into our first fight, but there’s plenty of room for improvement,” Pajkic said. “Greg’s a great man, athlete, and champion, but (turning to Kielsa), if you want your belt back, you can’t have it.”
