Andrzej Wawrzyk, Rafal Jackiewicz Get Wins in Gdynia
By Alexey Sukachev
Hala Sportowa, ul. Kazimierza Górskiego 8, Gdynia, Poland - Promising Polish heavyweight Andrzej Wawrzyk (24-0, 13 KOs) didn't take any risks in a fight against Argentinean Nelson Dario Dominguez and he shouldn't have. Wawrzyk instead cautiously calculated his pudgy opponent before finishing him off in the second without putting himself in danger. Dominguez, ten years older than the Pole at 34, was decked twice - firstly after a questionable hit to the back of his head, and the second time after a thunderous counter right, which had him down and immediately out at 2:21 of the second round. Wawrzyk added a vacant WBC Baltic title to his currently owned WBA International regalia. Dominguez is now 11-1-1, with 5 KOs.
Poland-based Nigerian heavyweight/cruiserweight Izuagbe Ugonoh (5-0, 4 KOs) did what he should in a two-round blowout of Turk Fatih Ceyhan (3-9, 1 KO). The Turkish fighter was never down but was forced to retire after the end of the second round.
IBF# 13 and WBO #15 ranked welterweight Rafal Jackiewicz (39-10-1, 19 KOs) looked very far from his best and rather rusty against unheralded and almost unknown German fighter Andre Deobald (4-2-2, 3 KOs) in what was planned to be as a casual six-rounder. Deobald didn't impress in the first but the second stanza was his coming-out party and he also delivered heat in the midst of the bout. BoxingScene had it even 57-57 but it was overruled by local judges, who unanimously voted the match for the home fighter.
