On Saturday September 10 at the Hala-Basen in Goldap, Poland, local man Przemyslav Opalach will fight Kenyan Daniel Wanyonyi for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Middleweight title.On a ten-fight winning streak, 30-year-old Opalach is 22-2 (18) since turning professional in 2011, and after winning a slew of regional titles along the way this is his first shot at a world championship.

Wanyonyi (33), a former Kenyan national champion and African champion, on the other hand has challenged for world honours before. Last February he lost a competitive decision to Tony Averlant in France for the WBF World Light Heavyweight title. He has since rebounded with a second-round knockout victory in Nairobi, to bring his record to 23-9-2 (19).Both boxers carry considerable power, so it could be a case of who lands the first clean blow to unsettle the other man. On paper it shapes up to be a very interesting and entertaining match-up. The fight, televised in Poland by Orange Sport, will be the main event of a show promoted by Przemyslav Opalach and his Spartan Promotions.  Source: press release/WBF
