RE: Final Requests For Additional Specific Information


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,
