Krzysztof Włodarczyk is coming off an impressive TKO over Rakhim Chakhkiev as a betting underdog in Russia, even though he was the defending WBC cruiserweight champion. Now he will be defending his title in friendlier territory due to a large Polish population in Chicago that comes out to support their boxers, as evidenced by the large number of Polish fighters on the card.
Wlodarczyk has fought Giacobbe Fragomeni twice before. They fought to a draw in Italy (which is known for questionable judging) and then “Diablo” won the rematch in Poland via KO. Since the loss, Fragomeni has mostly fought lesser competition in Italy and now will be making his first trip to fight in the United States.
