- I've heared that the atmosphere during boxing nights in Chicago is excellent. I feel great and I can hardly wait to fight on the Friday evening – said Wawrzyk who seems to be a strong favourite of the nearest bout. - Unfortuantely, I' ve seen only one fight of my rival – a defeat by TKO to Ran Nakash. I must admit that Jolly looked like a regular heavyweight in that contest. Certainly, I should start the fight carefully, later I will try to take my advantage of weight.
