Mariusz Wach Knocks Tye Fields Out in a Battle of Giants

By Alexey Sukachev

Resorts Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City - In a battle of heavyweight giants, Polish boxer Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15KOs), 6'7, stopped Tye Fields (49-5, 44KOs) 6'8, in the sixth round to retain the WBC Intercontinental title.

Wach, named "Viking" was slow but effective against also slow but ineffective Canadian. Wach's power wasn't superior to that of Fields but his punches landed cleaner, and they created more damage than those of Tye. The first two or three rounds were dull and seemingly even but right after that WBC #8 Wach started to overwhelm his foe, relying majorly on his right hand.

Rounds four and five were in Wach's corner, and into the sixth he landed a couple more blows at the ropes, with hard finishing touches from his powerful right hand. Fields went down near the ropes and failed to get upright until referee Benji Estevez counted him out at 1:36 of the sixth round.

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

Polish super featherweight Kamil Laszczyk (8-0, 5 KOs) captured his first ever professional title edging tough Tevin Farmer (4-3-1, 2 KOs) in an exciting eight-rounder. Laszczyk, 21, was a better fighter but he threw his advantage in technique to the pot and chose to slug it out with the capable young American. Both fighters fought on very even terms but the Pole was a bit more effective and landed a few more blows than his deserving counterpart. There were no knockdowns. Scores were: 77-75, 78-74 and 79-73 - all for Kamil Laszczyk, who is now the WBO Youth super featherweight titleholder.

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

Polish heavyweight hopeful Artur Szpilka (10-0, 8 KOs) notched yet another quick knockout victory, annihilating incapable Terrance Marbra (6-2, 5 KOs) early into the second minute of the very first round. Marbra was down twice - both times after the heavy left hands of the 22-year old troubled Pole. Szpilka is definitely in the need of tougher challenges as it was Marbra's second bout after an almost eight-year long hiatus.
