On Thursday, May 15 Cruiserweight prospect Steve Bujaj (12-0, 9 KOs) looks to remain undefeated when he takes on fellow undefeated Junior Wright (10-0, 9 KOs) in a 10-round fight for the WBC USNBC and the WBC International cruiserweight titles. The 23-year old native of Yonkers, New York has been training hard for the fight that could catapult him into title contention. “I am just ready to fight. This is a big opportunity with a lot on the line and I am ready to take care of business,”said Buaj.
When asked about his opponent, Bujaj is ready for anything. “I don’t know much about him, but I trained as this was a world title bout.”
Very rarely in boxing, two undefeated fighters meet each other so early in their careers but Bujaj is a throwback fighter willing to take on all comers.
“I am not like any other fighter out there. I am willing to risk it all and I don’t want to fight bums. I want to take chances and prove myself. After this, I wont be behind and ultimately I want to fight WBC champion Krzystolf Wlodarczyk for the WBC title.
“I am ready to put on a show Thursday night,”said Buaj.
A packed undercard has been assembled by promoter Dmitry Salita’s Star of David Promotions.
