IBF #1 Light Heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 14 KOs) has agreed to a very dangerous test for his next ring appearance on Friday, December 6, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Fighting in one of the two main bouts of the Ulrich Knockout Promotions, Warriors Boxing and 8 Count Productions event, entitled “World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3”, Fonfara will face La Habra, California, via Colombia KO artist Samuel Miller (26-7, 23 KOs).

 

34-year-old Miller is a former WBC United States (USNBC) Middleweight Champion who has faced a long list of top contenders. The dangerous puncher carries a 70% KO percentage against better-than-average competition.

 

“That’s how Andrzej is,” said Dominic Pesoli of 8 Count Productions. “He could have sat and waited for his title fight, but he wants to stay busy and he wants the kind of fights that will test him. A puncher like Samuel Miller is never more than one shot away from winning a fight and Andrzej knows that. This is a very dangerous fight for him while he has so much at stake that he wins.”

 

25-year-old Fonfara, Chicago’s Polish Prince, is currently the IBF #1, WBO #2 and WBC #7-ranked contender. A native of Warsaw, Poland, and a long-time Chicago fan favorite since turning professional in 2006, he is 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.

 

Tickets for “World Championship Boxing: Wlodarczyk vs. Fragomeni 3” featuring the Warriors Boxing debut of Andrzej Fonfara are priced at VIP $201, VIP Ringside $151, Ringside $101, Box Mezzanine $76, Reserved Mezzanine $51, and General Admission $31 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000), the 8 Count Productions Offices: 312-226-5800 or the UIC Pavilion Box Office: 312-413-5740.

 

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).
