IBF #1 Light Heavyweight Staying Busy Waiting for World Title Shot

Chicago’s Polish Prince, Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 14 KOs), will make his next ring appearance on Friday, December 6, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, when Ulrich Knockout Promotions, Warriors Boxing and 8 Count Productions once again bring world-class professional boxing back to the Windy City with their latest blockbuster event, this one entitled "World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3".

25-year-old Fonfara, currently the IBF #1, WBO #2 and WBC #7-ranked contender, is a native of Warsaw, Poland, and a long-time Chicago fan favorite since turning professional in 2006. Riding high on a 15-bout unbeaten streak and known for his fight-ending power, Fonfara most recently stopped former world champion Gabriel Campillo on August 16 to reach the mandatory contender position in the IBF.

Fonfara’s opponent that night will be announced shortly.

In the night's 12-round main event, WBC Cruiserweight Champion Krzysztof "Diablo" Wlodarczyk (48-2-1, 34 KOs) of Warsaw, Poland, will attempt to make the sixth defense of his title and complete an epic trilogy of fights with Milan, Italy's former WBC Cruiserweight Champion Giacobbe "Gabibbo" Fragomeni (31-3-2, 12 KOs).
