Danyo Ilunga has been training with Remy Bonjasky, three time K-1 World Grand Prix winner, for quite a while now. Recently, he's switched things up a bit and has been sparring with some pro boxers, most notably the current WBO interim cruiserweight champion, Ola Afolabi.

Afolabi, being a cruiserweight, isn't that much smaller than Ilunga and will really provide some quality sparring. Afolabi bounces around quite a bit in terms of location and he's been at Felix Sturm's gym where Ilunga sparred with him. Ilunga will be sparring with Afolabi throughout the coming weeks in preparation for Afolabi's title fight against the current WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck on May 5.

As for Ilunga, he's scheduled to defend his It's Showitme 95MAX World Title on June 30 against Filip Verlinden in Brussels, Belgium. Before that, he'll have an easier fight on April 28 against Dennis Sebastian in Germany.
