By Tim Smith - 11/29/2023 - No comments

Next up for Ryan Rozicki is the WBC final eliminator fight on December 2nd, where he’ll clash with Nigeria’s own Olandewaju Durodola, a force to reckon with at WBC No. 8. The fight, set to erupt at Emera Centre in North Sydney, Canada, is a battle for the mandatory challenger spot to face current champ Noel Gervor Mikaelian. Expect a gritty, hard-hitting contest, as both fighters are known for their knockout power.

Daniel Otter of Three Lions Promotions promises an electric card, with Rozicki geared up for a standout performance. It’s been a whirlwind year for Rozicki, racking up wins and titles, including a daring showdown against Oscar Rivas for the WBC bridgerweight title, despite a weight class jump. His heart and skills earned him not just a title but respect.

Durodola’s year mirrors Rozicki’s intensity, marking his fifth fight in 12 months, all ending in knockouts. He’s no stranger to high-stakes fights, having challenged for the WBC Cruiserweight title against Ilunga Makabu. Expect nothing less than fireworks when these two collide.
