Q&A: Mariusz Wach

By Przemek Garczarczyk
Photos: Wojtek Kubik

Heavyweight Mariusz Wach (22-0, 10 KOs) is 6’8 and 250 pounds; his nickname “Polish Giant” makes sense. Wach will step into the ring to fight another big fighter, 6’6″ Kevin Burnett (13-4, 8 KOs) on the off-TV undercard of HBO’s November 6 telecast featuring Zab Judah against Lucas Matthysse in the main event. For Wach, this will be another chance to prove that the word “gentle” applies only to his off canvas demeanor.

“Maybe I’m not the flashiest heavyweight out there, but I like people to just quit in the ring, to know that they cannot beat me. It’s a boxing in black and white: good basics will beat flashy nine times out of ten,” says Wachs. (more…)

Helenius: Levin will pay

Photo: Ada Korhonen / Boxingcompany.Fi

Robert Helenius (13-0, 8 KOs) has promised to make Attila Levin (34-3, 21 KOs) pay for skipping their official press conference in Helsinki on Friday. The Nordic Nightmare took time out from his busy training schedule to fly to the Finnish capital for a media tour prior to his November 27th showdown with his Swedish rival. However, Levin never showed up, stating he could not afford to miss his daily practice. “That is a lame excuse,” Helenius, the EU Heavyweight Champion, said. “He is probably scared of me. Just taking the one-hour flight from Stockholm to Helsinki should not have been too much of a problem. He better gets all the training he can – he will need it on November 27. I am going to make him pay for not showing up today.” (more…)

Lara targets Martirosyan

Unbeaten middleweight Erislandy Lara (13-0, 8 KOs) has challenged unbeaten Vanes Martirosyan to prove who the best 154-pound prospect in the world is. “I’ve proven myself, especially this year, and now I want to let Vanes and fans around the world know that when you talk and my name comes out of your mouth, you better be ready to back it up,” said Lara. “If Vanes spent as much time in the gym as he did on the internet talking about real fighters, he might have been a world champion by now. I want the world to know that the talking stops here. I’ve told my team to make this fight and now it’s up to Vanes to see if he’s ready to put his money where his mouth is….Vanes calls himself the ‘Nightmare,’ but he can’t scare anyone with his fists.He’s your typical internet tough guy…a keyboard warrior afraid to step up and fight for real. I’m ready to go. Are you Vanes?”
