Maciej Sulecki: I Want Jermell Charlo Next, I Want The Title Shot

Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. - Super welterweight contender Maciej Sulecki (26-0, 10 KOs)scoring a unanimous decision victory over former title challenger Jack Culcay (22-3, 11 KOs)in a back-and-forth 10-round WBC title eliminator.
 
"It was a very tough fight and I had to be at my best," said Sulecki. "I didn't think he'd be quite as tough, but I wanted to fight him and I got him."
 
The contest opened cautiously as Sulecki looked to use his reach advantage to subdue Culcay. Sulecki had success varying his attack as Culcay looked to navigate the distance and throw big punches from the inside.

The series of right hands eventually led to a cut opening near the left eye of Culcay, which seemed to inspire Culcay to pick up his efforts in the seventh round. The once-beaten contender came out incredibly aggressive in the seventh round and hurt Sulecki with a series of combinations.
 
"I prepared for about four or five weeks for this opponent," said Sulecki. "The seventh round was the toughest round for me. I got hit with a couple big shots, but I wanted a war. I was never going to let down."
 
"It was a close fight," said Culcay. "Hard to tell but I felt like I was winning. It was very close but I really thought I was winning. I felt like I was strong. I thought that I hurt him. But this is boxing. I would love a rematch, but either way I will be back even stronger."
 
Sulecki and Culcay continued to stand toe-to-toe for the finals rounds, with both men having their dominant moments. After 10 rounds, all three judges saw the fight in favor of Sulecki by scroes of 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94. 
 
"I want the best in the division and that means facing Jermell Charlo," said Sulecki. "I'm ready to challenge for a title."
