Syd­ney Forks fighter Ryan Rozicki will en­ter the squared cir­cle on Saturday at the An­caster Fair­grounds in Hamil­ton, Ont. Rozicki will bat­tle with 24-year-old Kristof Mate of Bu­dapest, Hun­gary, in a cruis­er­weight bout. Mate sports a record of 9-7 with six knock­outs and has won six of his seven bouts since mov­ing into the cruis­er­weight di­vi­sion. He’s the cur­rent UBO In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal cruis­er­weight cham­pion, how­ever, no belt will be on the line. “Ryan has been work­ing ex­tremely hard since his last KO win at Cen­tre 200. We have been ad­vanc­ing his speed and move­ment and work­ing on some new com­bi­na­tions that we will be putting to good use,” Glenn Wil­liams, Rozicki’s coach, said in an email. Rozicki has a 6-0 pro­fes­sional record and is the Cana­dian Pro­fes­sional Box­ing Coun­cil’s North Amer­i­can cruis­er­weight cham­pion.
