Sergiy Dzinziruk, WBO Champ, Calls Out Paul Williams

Ask and you shall receive.

Paul Williams wanted to know if he would be able to get a big fight at 154 pounds.  I even went as far as writing an article naming the top five fighters I felt were a good match.

My No. 3 pick, WBO Jr. middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk, unbeaten with 36 wins (22 KO), said he wants to fight the WBO Jr. middleweight interim champion Paul Williams.  He also stated that he wants to fight Williams in the Untied States like many fighters that have been making their way to the States for main event bouts.

Dzinziruk said, “I’m ready. Just let me know where and when. I think it would be an excellent fight.  I want this fight in the USA.”

Followed by the comments of promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl, who said, “Sergiy is one of the best boxers of our stable, and we would be very happy to show his skill in the United States as well.”

Sergiy Dzinziruk is willing to delay his chances to unify the title to fight Williams to prove he is among the elite boxers of today. What better way to prove that you’re a great boxer than to go after the guy that says everyone is running from him?

Dzinziruk is doing just that and putting his WBO title on the line. Know he’s leaving the ball in Paul Williams’ court, along with the question about whether or not he will fight Sergiy Dzinziruk. Or does the chance of getting a real title not appeal to him like getting the big bucks?  

I guess this will be the moment we'll see what Williams is all about.
