Darusz Sek, Piotr Wilczewski, Maciej Sulecki Win Big

By Alexey Sukachev

Team Poland completed a shutout over their neighbours from Ukraine during a lively event in Rzeszow - by beating all four Ukrainian opponents in televised fights. The last point was earned by light heavyweight talent Darusz Sek (16-0-1, 6 KOs) who has polished his mastery in a confident and a comfortable way by beating his opponent Vitaliy Rusal (27-4, 19 KOs) over ten painful rounds of boxing.

Rusal was the straightforward aggressor against the taller Sek, who used excellent footwork and reflexes to avoid the damage. Oppositely, Rusal was slow and plodding. His jab was ineffective and his defense left enough room for Sek to land some meaningful blows. Midst into the fight the Ukrainian guest suffered a damaging cut on the left side of his forehead and was also bothered by the dripping blood. In later rounds Sek looked overly preserved and helped his opponent to land some clean punches that weren't decisive by any means. The Pole also ended the fight in style delivering more and more punishment to Rusal. Final scorecards were very telling afterwards: 99-91 (twice + BoxingScene) and 98-92 - for Dariusz Sek, who moves forward to newer heights. Rusal has lost his third in a row.

Former EBU super middleweight champion Piotr Wilczewski improved to 31-3, with 10 KOs, after an easy victory over professional loser Vladimir Borovskiy (20-50-2, 10 KOs), who has reached his 50th milestone in a defeat. Wilczewski was better in every component of the boxing mastery but the Ukrainian was way too durable for Wilczewski to get a stoppage victory. Nevertheless, the Pole moves on with a clean sweep: 60-54 - on all the judges' scorecards.

Maciej Sulecki (10-0, 2 KOs), a rising prospect from Poland, scored by far the biggest win of his career when he outpointed former world champion Yuri Nuzhnenko (31-3-1, 14 KOs) over six rounds of two-way action in an exciting fight. Sulecki, a natural middleweight, enjoyed a huge size advantage over ex-WBA welterweight titleholder but Nuzhnenko, 35, had his chances with his savvy ring intelligence and vast experience. However, Sulecki boxed well and prevented Nuzhnenko to score many punches, peppering him with the jab and scoring with right hands on the occassion. The shorter Ukrainian tried to get on the inside and he had some success in the midst of the fight with his left hook in clinches but all in all it was Maciej's night of boxing, not Yuri's. Nuzhnenko's best punch came in the second, while Sulecki landed his best combinations in rounds four and five. All three judges saw the fight identically: 59-55 - for Sulecki. BoxingScene had it 58-56 - also for Sulecki.

In the TV-opener of a six-fight Poland vs. Ukraine fight card in Rzeszow, Poland, WBO #15 ranked super featherweight Kamil Laszczyk (9-0, 5 KOs) was taken deep into a rough encounter with upset-minded dangerous journeyman Nikita Lukin (11-20-2, 5 KOs). Laszczyk was effective in the opening rounds but as the fight progressed he began to feel the power and physical strength of the Ukrainian, who marched forward despite a handful of eaten punches and tried to induce a brawl in the ring. Lukin got what he wanted in the second half of the fight and gave his more talented foe fits near the ropes. Laszczyk was cut over his right eye at the end of a heated six-rounder. All three judges scored it for the Pole: 60-54 (twice) and 59-56. BoxingScene saw it 58-56 - also for Laszczyk.
