Earlier we discussed a report that a December 3 fight between Pawel Wolak and Vanes Martirosyan was close to done, and agreed to in principle by the camps. Wolak then contacted us to say he'd heard nothing about the fight, and that his focus was still on Cornelius Bundrage..

"I have a list of potential opponents for December 3. Vanes is not and has not been on the list," Wolak told Bad Left Hook. "I like the guy and think he is a pretty good fighter, but I have always said that my sole focus right now is getting Feline Bundrage to back up his bark and get his tail out from between his legs and fight me on December 3 on a big stage for his belt. But so far he has been more of a pretender than a contender."

Bundrage and Wolak have traded a lot of trash talk through various media outlets for the past few weeks. Bundrage, promoted by Don King, last fought on June 25, defeating Sechew Powell in Missouri on the Alexander vs Matthysse card.

Wolak wasn't content to just discuss Bundrage and Martirosyan, though, as he also took aim at WBC titlist Canelo Alvarez.

"I prefer not to be a pawn in the Golden Boy-Top Rank battle. Vanes and I would beat Canelo and they would rather see us beat up each other instead," said Wolak.

"And you wonder why they signed Angulo? Easier to keep him away [from Canelo] that way, I guess. I will take Feline's title one way or the other and then see if Golden Boy will be interested in unifying, which I doubt. Kills me how guys are called champions and their promoters don't let them fight the tough fights. Crazy business but I am just glad I am even talked about."
