Kostecki Sentenced, out of Roy Jones Fight; Glazewski In?

By Alexey Sukachev & Luke Furman

According to various Polish sources, Dawid "Gypsy" Kostecki (39-1, 25 KOs), who was scheduled to take on legendary Roy Jones Jr. (55-8, 40 KOs) at Atlas Arena in Lodz on June 30, is now out of the fight. Kostecki has recently been found guilty in an organized crime and was sentenced to two and a half years in jail. According to local authorities, the boxer was the head of a nationwide gang of pimps. He had also been charged with drug possession, but these charges were later dropped.

"Somebody wanted to prevent this event from happening and to prevent me from winning big on the international scene. It would have been a major night for me and for Polish professional boxing as a whole. It will never happen", posted Kostecki via the obe of social networks through his friends. "I hope the truth will eventually come out, and all of you will know exactly what has happened with me in reality. Somebody wants to rule me out".

Kostecki will be reportedly (source - Tomasz Babilonski) replaced by an undefeated former BBU International champion light heavyweight champion Pawel Glazewski (17-0, 4 KOs), who has victories over capable Doudou Ngumbu and Matthew Barney in his recent fights. He is ranked #9 by the WBC.

Comment by Achille on 06-21-2012

Roy should have his people push this fight back if it happens. It seems to me whenever Roy fights he also has to work which HBO which takes away from him being 100% during training camps since he has to…
