The 31-year-old Wach of North Bergen by way of Krakow, Poland will also be co-promoted by Prize Fight Promotions, with former three-time heavyweight champion Michael Moorer taking over as Wach's trainer.
"I am very happy to have the support of Global Boxing and Prize Fight Promotions," said Wach. "I left my family and homeland before Christmas to continue training because it is my dream to become the first world heavyweight champion from Poland. I make this sacrifice because I fight for my wife, my child and my country and I want to make them proud.
"Now with Michael Moorer in my corner, 2011 will be my year to realize my dreams."
Wach, who cuts an imposing figure at 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds, won two gold medals at the Individual Polish Championships and a silver medal in the 2004 European Union Championships. Wach was also an alternate on the 2004 Polish Summer Olympics team that competed in Athens, Greece.
Said Global Boxing Promotions CEO Mariusz Kolodziej: "Wach is a hard-working, determined fighter and I am confident that he can become the heavyweight champion of the world. He wants it bad and I and the rest of the team are here to help him reach his goals."
"Wach is a world class heavyweight fighter that has the potential to be a dominant champion," said Brian Young, CEO of Prize Fight. "We will continue to build him the right way so when he does fight for the heavyweight championship of the world, he will be ready. I feel we have a great team around him and I'm proud to be part of it."
Wach will leave next week to train at the Prize Fight Gym in Memphis, TN with Moorer, who defeated Evander Holyfield to win his first heavyweight title in 1994. Wach's next fight will be announced shortly.
"It's going to be a great opportunity to try and instill some good qualities and boxing skills into him," said Moorer, who had a record of 52-4 (40 KO) as a professional. "Wach admitted to me that he never really had a trainer before, he was doing everything himself.
"To have someone to guide him and show him the rights and wrongs of the boxing game, to cultivate his punching power and improve his offense and defense will go far to making him a force in the heavyweight picture.
"If Mariusz is willing to work hard - and there is a lot of work in store for him - he can be the next heavyweight champion of the world."
