Krzysztof Glowacki Stops Matty Askin in The Eleventh

by Alexey Sukachev

Hotel Hilton, ul. Grzybowska 63, Warsaw, Poland - In the main event of the show, co-promoted by Tomasz Babilonski and Andrzej Wasilewski, Polish cruiserweight Krzysztof Glowacki (18-0, 12 KOs) got the biggest win of his career so far, stopping the British import Matty Askin (14-2, 9 KOs) in the eleventh round of the scheduled twelve. By winning this contest, WBO #11 Glowacki, 26, retained his WBO Intercontinental title for the first time. Askin suffered his first stoppage loss (and his second defeat this year) after making a smooth and impressive run in 2011.

Glowacki used body shots to stop Askin in his track early on. His punching was cumulative and resulted in the Brit slowing down drastically. Askin was in trouble late in the eighth but came back big the next round. Still it wasn't enough to prevent the fight from a premature end. In the eleventh, Glowacki dropped his foe with a crushing left hook and that was it.

--------------------------

WBO #14 super featherweight Kamil Laszczyk (11-0, 6 KOs) got his fifth win this year, clearly outpointing overmatched Italian veteran Antonio Cossu, 38, over twelve rounds. The Pole, 17 years his younger, was in full control of the bout and easily outboxed Cossu in almost every round of scheduled twelve. Scores were: 118-110, 119-109 and 120-108 - for the home fighter. As a result of this win, Laszczyk acquired a vacant WBO I/C belt in his comeback to 126 pounds. It's still unclear if he continues to compete as a featherweight or as a super featherweight in the future. Cossu, meanwhile, suffered his first career loss and dropped down to 12-1-1, with 6 KOs.

--------------------------


Super middleweight up-and-coming prospect Andrzej Soldra (6-0, 4 KOs) was very lucky to get a controversial split decision over Cuban veteran Julio Acosta (5-1-1, 3 KOs) over six rounds. Acosta, 37, showed his athletic abilities at its best and mixed them with his superior foot movement to frustrate Soldra for the entire fight. Yet, the Pole came out as a winner in what was barely a draw for him - at the very best.

Light heavyweight prospect Maciej Miszkin (15-0, 4 KOs) got a hard-fought six-round decision over fellow compatriot Bartolomiej Grafka (7-4, 2 KOs).

Other results:
Michal Chudecki (3-0, 2 KO) TKO 4 Andrey Gromyko (9-3-1, 9 KOs). Gromyko failed to answer the bell for round four.
Krzysztof Kopytek (4-0, 2 KOs) PTS 4 Jair Cortez (0-3-1).
