Pawel Wolak (29-1-1, 19 KO’s) still has eyes for the IBF light-middleweight belt but may now seek an eliminator for the title after his advances were seemingly spurned by current champion Cornelius ‘K9’ Bundrage.
The 29 year-old is on the back of a career best fight with Delvin Rodriguez that although ending in a draw, has propelled both fighters into the reckoning for world title at 154lbs. Both fighters are now keen to exploit any opportunities before they consider a rematch with each other.
The New Jersey-based Pole, who still works on a construction site as he trains, was hoping to be Bundrage’s second title defence later this year but has had no luck in securing a bout with the belt holder. The ‘Raging Bull’ is now looking at other possibilities and would consider other world champions if they came calling.
“I don’t think the Bundrage fight will happen so I am moving on to Plan B,” Wolak told World Boxing News.
“I am not waiting around for Bundrage anymore. If he accepts before I get another opponent contracted then great.
“The goal is the IBF belt so we are moving toward that one way or another. We want Chavez, Canelo or Bundrage, but none seem to be willing to fight me.”
