Krzysztof Glowacki vs. Oleksandr Usyk battle this Saturday

screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-12-15-43-pm screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-12-12-40-pm

 

By Allan Fox: Boxing fans are going to get a chance to see whether WBO Cruiserweight titlist Krzysztof Glowacki (26-0, 16 KOs) is for real or not when he defends his WBO title against #1 challenger Oleksandr Usyk (9-0, 9 KOs) this Saturday night at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

Glowacki will be fighting at home in front of friendly audience but it might not help him, because Usyk appears to be the real thing. The 2012 Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine has the size, punching and the boxing ability to beat Glowacki in front of his own fans. Glowacki has won his last two fights on the road against Steve Cunningham and Marco Huck in the United States. 

The win over the 40-year-old Cunningham was expected, because that was just a voluntary defense and not expected to be a particularly competitive match. It ended up being a competitive fight, as Cunningham exposed Glowacki’s vulnerability in getting out-boxed.

Glowacki was fine when he was knocking Cuningham down four times in the fight. But when Glowacki wasn’t able to knock Cunningham down, he was losing the rounds due to him getting outworked and hit a lot. If Usyk is able to nail Glowacki as often as Cunningham and Huck did, then this fight won’t last very long. Glowacki gets hit too much and he can be hurt, as we saw in his fight against Huck.

“I feel terrific and I’m completely focused on winning the world championship,” Usyk said via espn.com. “This was my next goal after winning the gold medal in 2012.”

The 6’3” Usyk has the height, reach and the superior defensive skills of the two. It’s not easy to hit Usyk without running into one of his hard left hands or powerful jabs. Glowacki is going to need to be a little more subtle in his attacking style of fighting, because he has a bad habit of telegraphing his shots. You can always tell when Glowacki is about to throw one of his big left hands, because he loads up and puts his entire body into the shot.

Usyk is always going to know when Glowacki is getting ready to land a shot because he’s going to telegraph his punches each. That’ll enable Usyk to step back to avoid the shot.

screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-12-21-23-pm

If Usyk can capture Glowacki’s World Boxing Organization title, he would become the quickest champion in the cruiserweight division’s history. Usyk has fought only nine times since turning pro several years ago after winning a gold medal in the 2012 Olympics. This would be big news if Usyk can beat Glowacki in his home country. Usyk is going into the lion’s den in challenging for his WBO title. He might need a knockout to get out of there with Glowacki’s WBO title.

Glowacki appears to be a good cruiserweight, but he’s been beating flawed fighters in Huck and Cunningham. Huck held the WBO title for a number of years, but he was always a fairly primitive fighter who won his fights based off his raw power rather than his boxing skills, which you can argue are rudimentary.

Prediction: Usyk by 6th round knockout over Glowacki.

Glowacki, Usyk Make Weight Ahead of Cruiserweight Title Tilt

glowakiusyk

By Jake Donovan

Krzysztof Glowacki and Oleksandr Usyk both made weight ahead of their highly anticipated title clash, the latest in a continued series of thrilling bouts in the current state of the cruiserweight division.

Both came within the 200 lb. division limit; Glowacki tipped the scales at 199.3 lbs., while Usyk checked in at a shredded 198.75 lbs. for their headliner Saturday evening at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

Glowacki (26-0, 16KOs) will attempt the second defense of the cruiserweight title he annexed in thrilling – and violent fashion – with an 11th round knockout of Marco Huck last August. The Fight of the Year-level war saw both boxers hit the canvas, with Glowacki rallying to score a knockdown and stoppage, thus leaving Huck tied with Johnny Nelson for the most successful title defenses in boxing history.

The 30-year old southpaw retained his title with a 12-round win over Steve Cunningham this past April in Brooklyn, New York. Saturday’s bout will mark his first in his native Poland as a reigning champion.

Usyk (9-0, 9KOs) has been a knockout every time out since entering the pro ranks, but enters by far the toughest challenge of his young career. The unbeaten southpaw twice represented Ukraine in the Olympics, losing in the quarterfinals of the 2008 Beijing Games to Clemente Russo before avenging the loss in capturing Olympic gold four years later in London.

The 29-year old has been matched aggressively since his pro debut in Nov. ’13, with all 10 career opponents (including Glowacki) boasting at least twice as many fights. His lone setback, however, has been inactivity, having not fought since last December. He was due to take on a stay-busy bout in April, but was forced to withdraw due to injury.

With the mandated title fight versus Glowacki on the horizon, Usyk opted to sit on the sidelines in lieu of pursuing an interim bout.

The scheduled 12-round battle will air live via free and legal webcast on Klowd TV.

Krzysztof Glowacki looks to become the latest southpaw to give Steve Cunningham fits

krzysztof-glowacki

Krzysztof Glowacki is undefeated, 10 years younger than his upcoming opponent and riding the momentum of a dramatic come-from-behind, title-winning knockout. But his biggest advantage against Steve Cunningham could be his southpaw stance.

Cunningham has labored against lefties, getting dropped six times while posting a 3-2-1 record, with both defeats coming against Yoan Pablo Hernandez in successive 200-pound championship fights.

The first loss to Hernandez was by disputed sixth-round technical decision in October 2011, when Cunningham was floored in Round 1 before the bout was stopped due to a Hernandez cut caused by a headbutt. In the rematch four months later, Hernandez put Cunningham on the canvas twice in the fourth round and won by unanimous decision.

On Saturday, Krzysztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) will attempt to become the latest lefty to befuddle Steve Cunningham (28-7-1, 13 KOs) when the two clash at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York (NBC, 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT). Glowacki will be making the first defense of his 200-pound crown, while Cunningham will be returning to the weight class where he twice won world titles before moving to heavyweight, where he went 4-3-1 over the last four years.

Both boxers will be back in action for the first time since August 14, when Glowacki and Cunningham fought on the same Premier Boxing Champions card at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. That night, the 29-year-old Glowacki rose from a sixth-round knockdown to dethrone Marco Huck by 11th-round stoppage, denying the German a division-record 14th straight title defense.

Then in the main event, the 39-year-old Cunningham struggled against yet another left-hander, battling former 175-pound world champ Antonio Tarver to a split draw in a heavyweight battle.

“I did not see the Cunningham-Tarver fight, but my coach was watching,” says Glowacki, referring to trainer Fiodor Lapin. “I cannot disrespect Cunningham’s power when you’re talking about Tarver, because we all know how good Tarver is defensively.”

Lapin was the man with the plan for southpaw Artur Szpilka in his heavyweight title match against world champion Deontay Wilder in January. Wilder had a tough time figuring out Szpilka until the ninth round, when the champ crushed Szpilka with a counter right hand and knocked him out cold.

“We are not looking at Cunningham as a southpaw thinking he is easy to hit,” Lapin says. “I don’t yet have a blueprint how to fight him, but no doubt there’s stuff, errors in both his offensive and defensive stance that we can exploit. What I’m doing is finding his mistakes.”

Not only did Lapin get a ringside glimpse of Cunningham against Tarver, but he worked the opposite corner for Cunningham’s two fights against Krzysztof Wlodarczyk. The Polish fighter won a vacant 200-pound title by split decision over Cunningham in November 2006 before being dethroned in their rematch by majority decision in May 2007.

“Tactically, Cunningham is a lot harder to fight than Huck, who is simple: Stay close, don’t let him start swinging, hit him before he wants to hit you,” Lapin says. “Steve Cunningham is a more difficult fighter who gives you more complications.”

Prior to Glowacki’s rally in August, Cunningham had been the last 200-pound fighter to defeat Huck, winning the first defense of the title he won from Wlodarczyk by 12th-round stoppage in December 2007. But Cunningham was dethroned in his next fight by Poland’s Tomasz Adamek, falling by disputed split decision in December 2008.

Cunningham avenged the defeat four years later when he and Adamek squared off as heavyweights, earning a split-decision victory.

“I’ve watched Cunningham’s old fights with Hernandez, Adamek and Wlodarzcyk, and I noticed his long reach, which makes a difference, and how quickly he responds to being hit,” says Glowacki, whose 75-inch reach is seven inches shorter than Cunningham’s. “When you hit him, he wastes no time before he retaliates.

“My trainer will show me a round or two of how he fights, but regardless, I know that Cunningham is a fighter who likes to bring it. This is possibly his last opportunity [to win a championship], so I feel this is going to be a fan-friendly fight.”

  • Leon Margules E-mail: leon@warriorsboxing.com

RE: Final Requests For Additional Specific Information

Gentlemen:

On September 1, 2015 the WBO World Championship Committee wrote to you requesting an “Interim Medical Certification” to consider if a disability extension, in accordance to Rule 19 of the WBO Regulations of World Championship Contests, was warranted and to ascertain whether an Interim Championship was appropriate in light of the injury sustained by WBO Junior Heavyweight Champion Krzysztof Glowacki on his August 14, 2015 bout against Marco Huck. At that time, we underlined that such extension would only be granted if the Committee determined based on competent medical advice that the Champion was reasonably expected to recover from his disability within the maximum allowable term of the disability extension (i.e. 180 days). For this reason, we specifically requested that the physician clarify “the nature and extent of the injury as well as the prognosis.”

Upon receipt of the medical certification from the Carolina Medical Center to the effect that “it [was] estimated that the patient returns to boxing at the turn of the year 2015/2016.” We deemed the “turn of the year 2015/2016” estimate far too ambiguous and this Committee again wrote to you specifying that per WBO Regulations of World Championship Contests, a more detailed explanation was necessary. In that letter, we requested that the “physician specifically addresses and clarifies de nature, extent, ongoing treatment, prognosis for a date of a probable return to train and a subsequent date for a return to competition in a detailed manner.” In addition to this, we asked that you provide the doctor’s contact information as well as that of Glowacki’s chosen physiotherapy institution.

Furthermore, polish press reports (see for example: “Glowacki after the surgery. Expecting a long break)” point towards a long period of recovery before Glowacki’s return to action.

Again, the purpose of both of these letters requiring specific and detailed information is to assist us in making an informed decision and evaluating if an Interim Championship is in order in the WBO Junior Heavyweight Division.

Given that you have not provided a reply to our latest request for information, the WBO World Championship Committee hereby notifies you of an additional and final period of forty-eight (48) hours to respond. Should you not comply with this requirement of a more detailed medical certification within the allotted time, the WBO World Championship Committee will presume that the level of severity WBO Champion Glowacki’s injury will not permit him to recover and compete within the 180-day term of the disability extension.

Yours truly,

Shocker: Glowacki KOs Huck in eleven

81515huck00t

By Matt Richardson at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment –

It took eight and a half months but boxing fans finally have a clear fight of the year.

And it was in the cruiserweight division.

In a dramatic and violent fight in which both fighters hit the canvas, Poland’s Krzysztof Glowacki upset long-reigning WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck by knocking him out in the eleventh round at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The fight was the co-featured bout to the Antonio Tarver-Steve Cunningham main event on the “Premier Boxing Champions” card on Spike on Friday night.

Huck (38-3-1, 26 KO’s) was attempting to break the record for the most consecutive cruiserweight title defenses in boxing history (14) but his opponent wasn’t so agreeable. Glowacki (25-0, 16 KO’s), fighting in front of a passionate, pro-Polish crowd, hurt Huck in the first and knocked him down once in the eleventh before stopping him along the ropes in the same round. It was the fight in between Glowacki’s early and late success, however, which showed both men’s heart and courage. Glowacki was almost knocked out himself in the sixth after getting drilled with a hard left hook that left him staring up from the canvas.

It was that type of fight.

“The U.S. market is now open to me,” Glowacki said in the ring after the fight ended. “Fans around the world will now have to respect the cruiserweight division.”

If there are more fights like his one against Huck, that probably won’t be an issue.

Glowacki began the fight aggressively. He slammed Huck into the ropes with a left and in the final ten seconds of the round he rocked him in the corner with a hard right that made Huck’s legs jiggle. Glowacki continued to march forward in the second as he banged Huck to the body and head but Huck appeared to settle down on his punches in the final minute. Both men fought after the bell in the third and fourth but Huck did better in the latter after connecting with clean, flush shots.

Both men exchanged big punches in the fifth as Huck began to pick up the pace as much as Glowacki dropped it. A wide left hook then dropped Glowacki on his back in the sixth. The fight appeared to be over as the Polish fighter lay on the canvas with his hands above his head but he unsteadily rose and the action was allowed to continue.

“I didn’t know where I was,” Glowacki would state later on.

Surprisingly, Glowacki fought back well and held his own against Huck in what turned into an all-action round. Huck and Glowacki took a breather in the first half of the seventh but then Glowacki connected with a right that drove Huck back into the ropes. Glowacki flinched coming out of a combination in the eighth and Huck jumped on him and hurt him with shots of his own. Huck also connected well with combinations in the tenth as Glowacki seemed to tire.

In the eleventh, however, Glowacki awoke again. Huck attempted to land a lazy combination and soon paid the price after Glowacki connected with a left and wide right. The shots dropped Huck violently to the floor. Huck rose on clearly shaky legs and Glowacki quickly resumed battering his opponent. Huck couldn’t adequately defend himself but attempted to move out of the way anyway. Glowacki stayed on top of him, however, and connected with left hooks that snapped Huck’s head back along the ropes. As Huck continued to absorb punishment his body crumbled into the middle ropes, prompting referee David Fields to make a correct stoppage at the 2:39 mark of the round.

“When there was one minute left in the eleventh I knew I had to come on strong,” said Glowacki. “I always had a thing against bullies. Huck was trying to bully me in the ring and I brought it to him. This is the biggest night of my life.”

Entering round eleven, Huck was ahead 96-93, 96-93 and 95-94.

Fight of the Week: Marco Huck vs. Krzysztof Glowacki

marco-huck-vs-krzysztof-glowacki_1287

Unlike other professional sports, there is no offseason in combat sports. Week in and week out, fight cards all over the world are taking place. Some weeks there will be major fight cards filled with big name fighters, and others, not so much, but there are fights taking place every week.

Regardless of whether the fighters are household names or not, The MMA Corner will preview the best fight taking place during the week.

This week’s Fight of the Week is a WBO cruiserweight title bout between Marco Huck and Krzysztof Glowacki.
On Friday, Aug. 14, 2015, Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions heads to the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., where Huck and Glowacki will battle it out in the co-main event of PBC’s live broadcast on Spike.

Heading into this bout, Huck will be looking to defend his WBO cruiserweight title for the 14th time. With a record of 38-2-1 with 26 wins by knockout, Huck has proven that he is one of the top cruiserweight fighters in the world, but he is still searching for a signature win that will catapult him into stardom.

Glowacki on the other hand is entering this bout undefeated and hungry to capture his first major title. Having won multiple amateur, junior and Intercontinental titles, Glowacki is no stranger to big moments.

Considering both these fighters have knockout power and both men are looking to make a statement here on US soil, this one should be entertaining. Neither man has ever competed here in the US; this is there chance to introduce themselves to the American fan base live on cable TV.

Huck-Glowacki: Longest staredown ever?

Huck vs. Glowacki

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“It was the longest staredown ever – at least the ones I was part off,” said promoter Lou DiBella describing the 2 minute 58 second staredown between WBO cruiserweight champ Marco Huck and undefeated challenger Krzysztof Głowacki. It happen during final press conference in NYC and the intensity of both fighters was absolutely tremendous. Artur Szpilka, Głowacki’s countryman and close friend only added to it, practically challenging Huck to a slightly unscheduled fight on the BB King Bar stage. Also present, but very quiet in comparison were Antonio Tarver and Steve Cunningham, who will be in the main event on Friday night’s Spike TV telecast from the Prudential Center in Newark.
