Mohoumadi Scores Upset With TKO of Pawel Glazewski

By Alexey Sukachev

In an upset, local favorite Pawel Glazewski (20-2, 5 KOs) was dominated and then stopped in seven by rugged French journeyman Hadillah Mohoumadi (15-3-1, 10 KOs) to shock local crowd. Both fighters were better known for their losses rather than their wins. Mohoumadi lost close road decisions to the super middleweight contenders Nicola Sjekloca and James DeGale, while Glazewski's fame came with a highly controversial split decision loss to once great Roy Jones Jr. a year ago.

Matched together, both fighter's relied on their trademark styles, and Mohoumadi proved his effectiveness (and effectiveness of his style from the get-go). He tried to stay busy with his jab and his right hands. He was active and produced offense with exemplary punch-rate. Glazewski tried to turn back the tide but it was a hard task to accomplish as the Frenchman remained busy and active. He also cut Glazewski over the Pole's left eye with one of his right hands. Glazewski bravely fought through with a rapidly closing left eye but power dispairity was clearly seen - the Pole's punches did little to Hadillah, while the Frenchman's punches were right on spot.

In the seventh, Mohoumadi landed several hard right hands, then cornered Glazewski in the corner and forced him on canvas on a combination of punches. With a damaged left eye, Glazewski simply couldn't see much, and the fight was stopped at this point (1:06 of the seventh) by the referee.

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

WBO #7 featherweight Kamil Laszczyk (14-0, 6 KOs) continued his movement up in ranks with a spirited win over grizzled Belarussian veteran Andrey Isaev (23-4, 7 KOs) in the first defense of his WBO I/C title. In a close, two-way affair, all three judges - one from Poland, one from German and one from Hungary - awarded a deserved win to Laszczyk with identical scores: 116-112 (x3).

Isaev, 33, was coming out of a two-year long lay-off following one of his best performances - a close and dubious unanimous decision loss to the prime version of Rendall Munroe in a super bantamweight fight. Laszczyk, 22, meanwhile, was just 3-0, 3 KOs, when Isaev had been last seen in the ring. A long hiatus didn't result in considerable rustiness - the Belarussian fought on even terms with the youngster in the first half of the fight. Isaev was mostly an aggressor, while Laszczyk found his spots on the outside. Both fighters weren't busy enough with their body punches, targeting more at their heads. As the bout progressed, Isaev felt more and more desperate. He was unable to hurt the Pole and his activity and skill asset weren't enough to grant him so much needed victorious rounds. Laszczyk was also successful with his elusive movement and unexpected hooks and swings on the Belarussian. Isaev cut his foe over Laszczyk's left eye in the twelfth round but it was too late. BoxingScene had it 115-113 - also for the Pole. Isaev has now three losses in his last four fights.

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

27-year old Poznan native Michal Chudecki (6-0-1, 3 KOs) took a huge step up in class by defeating his experienced countryman and former Polish International champion Krzysztof Szot (17-6-1, 5 KOs) unanimously over eight rounds. Shorter but older (35 years) Szot tried to press action against the younger fighter but Chudecki utilized both a potent jab and stinging left hooks to keep Szot at bay and.. at the end of his punches. Szot was game and willing, but at this age and at this stage of his career he was no match for a younger boxer. Scores were: 80-72 (twice) and 79-74 - for Michal Chudecki.

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

Recent middleweight debutant Kamil Szeremeta (4-0) was forced to work very hard to get the better of determined Russian import Ismail Teboev (7-4-1, 3 KOs), overcoming him with a hard-fought majority decision over six rounds. Scores were: 57-57, 59-57 and 59-55 - for a better-schooled Polish fighter.

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

Cruiserweight Michal Cieslak (1-0) made a successful pro debut with a convincing win over Bigger's Better star Lukasz Zygmunt (1-1). The victory was punctuated with a hard right hand, which sent Zygmunt down at the end of the third stanza. All scores were identical: 39-36 - for Cieslak.

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

Undefeated Polish super middleweight Maciej Sulecki (15-0, 3 KOs) continued his winning series with a one-sided drubbing of the ring veteran Daniel Urbanski (21-13-3, 5 KOs). Urbanski, who is best known for knockout losses to future champions Zaurbek Baysangurov and Gennady Golovkin, is just 28 but has been declining since 2011, losing seven of his last eight beforehand. He was no match for Sulecki, four years his junior, who used multiple combinations to land his punches at will. Unfortunately for him and his fans, punching power isn't amongst Maciej's strengths, which helped Urbanski to last the distance, losing lopsidedly on the judges' scorecards: 60-54 (x3).

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

In a battle of two super bantamweight debutants, 2008 Polish Olympian Rafal Kaczor (1-0) got the best of Piotr Gudel (0-1) over four. Scores were 39-37, 40-37 and 40-36 - for Kaczor.

Mohoumadi is worth a name fight again he isn't all that skilled but from the DeGale fight he had a good chin and was relentless in his pursuits of landing punches.
