Agron Dzila (22-1, 17 KOs) is a name that promises excitement! On September 5, the boxer nicknamed ‘Godzilla’ brings his entertaining style of boxing to the EnergieVerbund Arena in Dresden, Germany where he defends his GBU World Cruiserweight title against Grigol Abuladze (21-9, 12 KOs).
Ahead of his first defence of the GBU title he claimed with a unanimous points victory over Bernard Adie, the 27 year-old has been bolstered by a new addition to his training team, the legendary German fighter Graciano ‘Rocky’ Rocchigiani. ‘’Rocky is a true legend,’’ said Dzila. ‘’On September 5, he will lead me to glory!’’
Rocchigiani, a former five-time world title challenger, sees great potential in his new pupil. ‘’The boy has great ability,’’ said ‘Rocky’. ‘’He hits hard and rarely takes a step back. We saw that in his last fight against Bernard Adie in Rostock. That fight was so exciting it would have woken anyone up from even the deepest sleep!’’
With ‘Godzilla’ and ‘Rocky’ both coming to Dresden fans can look forward a blockbuster night of boxing. Juergen Braehmer tops the bill with a defence of WBA World Light Heavyweight title against Konni Konrad.
