Andrzej Wawrzyk (29-1, 15 KOs) continued his "Old Men journey" with the fifth-round knockout of ex-world title challenger Frans Botha (48-11-3, 29 KOs) at Hotel Arlamow in Arlamow, Poland. After the first three rounds, which were quite lazy, the recent victim of Alexander Povetkin (his latest victim to be more precise) started to fire off more freely. The end came with a left hand plus right cross combo, which forced Botha to go down for the count.

The White Buffalo has lost his sixth fight over the last two and a half years and looks to be a completely spent bullet.


Heavyweight Marcin Rekowski (13-1, 11 KOs) scored yet another knockout - this time against fellow compatriot Mateusz Malujda (4-3-1, 1 KO) in the third round. Malujda was down after a big right hand in the second round and then was finished off with a left hook to the body in the third stanza.


In an epic light heavyweight war, Marek Matyja (5-0, 2 KOs) got a very close split nod over more experienced Norbert Dabrowski (14-2, 6 KOs) following six round of all-out war. Scores were: 59-55, 58-57 - for Matyja, and 56-58 - for Dabrowski in a bout, which has a rematch logo written all over it.


Former amateur standout Khavazhy Khatsygov (10-6, 6 KOs), a two-time former Olympian for Belarus with 2004 Athens win over Juan Manuel Lopez, started fast and dropped Pole Krzysztof Cieslak (22-5, 6 KOs) in the first (which wasn't ruled as a knockdown for whatever reason), then edged him in the next couple of rounds - only to be stopped in the fourth due to very bad conditioning and severe exhaustion. Khatsygov has lost his fifth in a row and the second in a two-week span.


Kamil Szeremeta (6-0, 1 KO) got his first career knockout, stopping Croatian Ivo Gogosevic (5-2-1, 1 KO) in three. Szeremeta was in full control from round one, rocked Gogosevic in the second with a right hand and dropped him hard with a left hook in the third. The Croatian got up but was soon finished off by Szeremeta.


Light welterweight Ewa "Tigress" Piatkowska (3-0, 3 KOs) made her successful debut for KnockOut Promotions, stopping overmatched Slovakian import Dasha Gaborova (0-2) in the very first round. Piatkowska dropped Gaborova after just ten seconds of the fight and soon finished her off with a perfect right cross.

I actually had botha winning the fight up until the stoppage. as is the case in many of his fights he gets caught with a good punch & ends up on his back. he has seen better days but the guy still goes right after his opponent & is willing to trade with anyone no matter how big a puncher they are...
