Wlodarczyk has been a class operator in the division for the last 6 years or so against many of the best fighters in the division, so Green seems to have his hands full with this bout. I did not see Wlodarczyk’s last fight against Francisco Palacios, but it was a hometown split decision which means the fight was very close, but truth of the matter is that many of Wlodarczyk’s fights are close spirited battles, so perhaps there is no concern there.

I’ve heard rumors that he had some serious health problems that may be a concern, but most rumors in boxing are mean spirited attempts to degrade a fighter and need be taken with a grain of salt. It was no rumor that Green was coming off a serious scare of appendicitus not too long ago, and was subsequently knocked about and out by Antonio Tarver in their last fight.

Green is the hometown fighter with the “power of the purse” and he uses that to set catchweight bonus incentives, so we’ll have to see what weight Wlodarczyk comes in at, but Diablo is not a big cruiserweight, that is certain.

Wlodarczyk is 8 years younger than Green, but with more fights and rounds,  45-2-1, 32 KO in 278 rounds of boxing to 31-4, 27 KO in 177 rounds of boxing, so perhaps the age advantage is moot.

Should be a good solid action fight if you are up early in the AM Western time.
