Pawel Wolak has amassed an impressive record of 29-2-1 with 19 KO.
In his last two bouts, he drew and lost to Delvin Rodriguez. Had he defeated Rodriquez, he most likely would have gotten a title shot against Austin Trout.
This places him squarely among the top contenders at 154 pounds.
His other loss came against Ishe Smith, a credible gatekeeper who's fought many big names.
The 31-year-old has recently retired, and thus has no scheduled bouts for the moment, but the current landscape of the division might entice him to make a comeback.
Considering his record, two or three big wins against other top contenders would give him an opportunity to call out some of the many marquee names at 154 lbs (Pacquiao, Canelo, Mayweather, Cotto, Trout, Mayorga, etc.) for a lucrative payday and a chance at international glory.
