Mariusz Wach training hard for comeback, spars Gary Cornish (photos/video)

Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach has been putting in the hard graft for his imminent return to the ring following an absence of almost two years.

The 33 year-old last fought when losing out to Wladimir Klitschko in his first world title bid, but was subsequently smeared with a failed drug test against his name.

After admitting his guilt, Wach is ready to resume his career and now faces Samir Kurtagic over eight rounds in Dzierzoniow on October 17.

In preparation, Wach brought undefeated British fighter Gary Cornish over to his camp to engage in a competative sparring session last week.
