Jan Blachowicz Plans Move Up To Heavyweight In Two Years Time

Jan Blachowicz only recently won the vacant light-heavyweight title, but ‘The Polish Hammer’ has now revealed that in the future he plans to move up to heavyweight.

“I would like to stay in 205 a little bit longer,” Blachowicz told Submission Radio. “But it’s also hard because nobody knows what Jon Jones is doing right now. Even the UFC says that they don’t talk with him about his next fight. So, nobody knows what he’s doing.

“But, I believe that I will catch him later in heavyweight. I think two more years at 205 and then I will go to heavyweight.”

During the interview Blachowicz also voiced his frustration that Jones won’t fight him.

“I’ll give him first loss at 205, or maybe heavyweight. We will see. But, he does everything to not fight against me.

“So, what can I do? He promised me this fight after Corey Anderson, and after couple of months he go to heavyweight. What the f*ck?”

Still, Blachowicz has other big fights in mind at 205lbs that can keep him busy for the time being, but he has vowed to eventually catch up with Jones one way or another.

“First of all, I have to win against Glover or Israel, and after this fight we can talk about Jon Jones,” Blachowicz said. “I don’t care. I believe I catch him in future somewhere, at 205 or in heavyweight.

“Or maybe I’ll go to Albuquerque and go to his gym and we do sparring on the mat. But I believe that I have to fight against him somewhere, just for myself.”
