Unbeaten WBO light middleweight champ Sergiy Dzinziruk wants to fight interim titlist Paul Williams as soon as possible. And he wants it to happen in the United States.

"Sergiy is one of the best boxers of our stable," said German promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl of Universum-Box Promotions. "And we would be very happy to show his skills in the United States as well."

"I'm ready," said Dzinziruk in a previous statement on Fightnews. "Just let me know where and when. I think it would be an excellent fight. I want this fight in the USA."

After Williams punished three-time champ Verno Phillips on Saturday night to capture the WBO interim belt, the Ukrainian powerhouse is eager to defend 'the real' WBO crown against the American star who is proclaimed as "boxing's most avoided fighter." Dzinziruk, who predicted a Williams win, wants to showcase his boxing ability in the USA to establish himself at the top of the boxing world.

Both Dzinziruk and Williams have similar records, both are good fighters. It would certainly be a interesting light middleweight clash.

Dzinziruk would be willing to delay a unification with Puerto Rican Daniel Santos, a fighter he already beat convincingly, to get a immediate showdown with Williams. The Ukrainian champion wants to prove himself in America and wants to show that Europeans are excellent fighters as well.

Williams, who stated that he could move up or down in weight to face the likes of Antonio Margarito or Floyd Mayweather, now has the opportunity to get rid of the interim title and win the real belt at 154 pounds if he decides to stay at this weight. His promoter Dan Goossen only needs to pick up the phone as WBO champion Sergiy Dzinziruk is waiting for the "Punisher."

This is great. He'll get what he wants, maybe even in his next fight. I like seeing these titleholders get more ambitious, if you wanna be the best in the 154 lb. division the road is through PW.

Williams will beat the brakes off of Sergei. I really hope this fight happens, and it will if Paul can't find a big fight at 47 or 60. I still want to see Paul retire Vernon Forrest at 54 though.

"Universum Box-Promotion Statement: It is alleged in an Internet report that Universum Box-Promotion would reject a battle between WBO super welterweight world champion Sergiy Dzinziruk against the interim champion Paul Williams. This allegation is absolutely false, absurd and has no basis. Representatives of both sides, Universum Box-Promotion and Goossen Tutor Promotions, have had contact with each other and there will be negotiations, but as usual behind the scenes. Until today we have not spoken "about even one cent," but we will put out offers and evaluate. WBO champion Sergiy Dzinziruk sticks to his statements made on fighnews.com "I want the fight against Paul Williams as quickly as possible and I totally do not care where. I will quite simply knock out Williams!"

More good news. I hope PW gets the chance to clear out the 154 division. Sergiy is saying all the right things right now, we'll have to wait and see.
