Wendell RocheDaniel Ghita's original opponent, Paul Slowinski, was looked upon as a gimme fight for Daniel Ghita, and then Slowinski had to pull out of the fight on short notice. The word was circulating that Daniel Ghita's opponent would be Spanish fighter Damian Garcia, but it appears that as the time approached, Garcia backed out for one reason or another. We've spoken to Ghita's camp and can confirm that the situation is a bit frustrating for them at this point, as there have been many possible opponents for Ghita, lots of talks over the past few days, and that nothing has worked out.

Sometime late last night here in the States, early morning in Europe, talk emerged that Wendell Roche was headed to Madrid to fight Daniel Ghita. As of about five hours ago we could confirm that from the perspective of Ghita's camp, Roche was indeed a possibility, but with how this week has shaped up, they do not feel that anything is certain until the bell rings for the fight. That being said, Roche is in Madrid and It's Showtime staffers have been pushing this video from 2010 on their Facebook profiles, of Roche talking about the Heavyweight division and how he'd fight anyone.

It is safe to say that as of right now, Wendell Roche is on deck for Ghita, but this has been quite a disaster.
