“It’s just a question of time when Andrzej Fonfara will be a world champion,” said WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof “Diablo” Włodarczyk (48-2, 34 KO) after tonight press conference in Chicago. #1 IBF rated light heavyweight Andrzej Fonfara (24-2, 14 KO) stated, “I’m proud to fight with Diablo on one card.”
Włodarczyk will defend his title against Giacobbe Fragomeni (31-3, 12 KO), and Fonfara will be tested by hard hitting Colombian Samuel Miller (26-7, 23 KO) on Friday night at the UIC Center in Chicago.
Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk: I’m here to show the world and the fans in Chicago how good I am. I’m here to prove I’m the best, like I did in Moscow in my last fight. Thanks everyone for coming. This is a great city and I’ll see you all on Friday night.
Giacobbe Fragomeni: I respect Krzysztof Wlodarczyk. He is a great champion. I am honored to fight in this great city and hope it will be an exciting fight for the fans.
Andrzej Fonfara: I had a great training camp. I spent part of the time in Big Bear, California and part of the time here. I am ready for my fight with Miller. He is a good fighter and a strong puncher and a tough guy, but I’m going to win. I will be world champion one day.
Samuel Miller: I know what my job is. I am here to one thing and that is to take away Andrzej Fonfara’s #1 ranking and take his place. That’s the only thing I’m here to do.
