Krzysztof Glowacki Crushes Santander Silgado in One

Hala Sportowa, Osiedle Dolne Miasto 14A, Walcz, Poladn - Former WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Glowacki (30-1, 19 KOs) continued his winning ways with a first round destruction of Santander Silgado (28-5).

The Polish puncher landed a monstrous left hook to the temple, which had Silgado down and out for several minutes.

Glowacki has now won four in a row, with three inside the distance, since losing a twelve round decision to Oleksandr Usyk in September of 2016.

Santander suffers his second first round knockout in his last three fights, after getting drilled by Dmitry Kudryashov in one back in December 2016.

Rising light heavyweight power puncher Pawel Stepien improved his record to 9-0, 8 KOs, with a destructive performance against countryman Michal Ludwiczak (15-8, 7 KOs), who was knocked out in four for a vacant Republic of Poland International title. Stepien was fast and accurate in the first couple of rounds. Late in the third he landed a massive hook to the body, which had Luwiczak down and almost out. Up at the count of eight he barely lasted it to the bell. Another left hook under the right hand got the job done almost immediately after the start of round four.


Former European super featherweight champion and ex-WBC title challenger Sergey Gulyakevich continued his sad road into nowhere with the eighth-round disqualification against previously (and still) undefeated Pole Przemyslaw Runowski.

Runowski dominated his faded foe in the first couple of rounds. The Belarussian veteran got back to live in rounds three and four. However, the tempo was too high for the 36-year old, and he started to lose energy in the fifth. He continued to fade away in the next couple of rounds, then was twice warned for holding and was also down for the count in the seventh. In the final round, Gulyakevich was holding too much, and was DQ'ed for that.

Runowski, 24, is now 17-0, 3 KOs. Gulyakevich goes down to 43-10, 17 KOs. He is just 2-7 since losing on points to Ivan Redkach in June 2014.


Ukrainian middleweight Fedor Cherkashin (9-0, 6 KOs), 22, continued his path towards the top with an impressive first-round KO of Polish journeyman Daniel Urbanski (21-24-3, 5 KOs), 33. Urbanski was knocked out with a big left hook to the liver. He has suffered his seventeenth consecutive loss.


Light heavyweight Marek Matyja (14-1-1, 6 KOs) had an easy evening with overmatched Georgian Giorgi Beroshvili (30-24-3, 22 KOs). Matyja dropped him four times in round two - once with a left hook to the liver, then with a right hook, after a fusilade of shots and finally with yet another hook - forcing Beroshvili to call it quits after two rounds.


Poland-based Ukrainian Timur Kuzachmedov (5-0-2, 2 KOs) showed his best in a four-round stoppage of trialhorse Krzysztof Rogowski (10-26, 5 KOs). After two tepid rounds Kuzachmedov started to punch in the third. He dropped Rogowski with a hard right hook. In the fourth he got the job done with a solid right uppercut, which forced referee Marcin Gortat to halt the action immediately. Rogowski suffered his eleventh consecutive knockout.


Welterweight southpaw prospect Konrad Dabrowski (9-2, 1 KO) came back after a year and a half off the ring and dominated journeyman Tomasz Goluch (6-12, 4 KOs) over four rounds. Dabrowski rocked Goluch with a massive left hook in the fourth but failed to stop him. Scores were identical: 40-36.


Belarussian welterweight Maxim Gordeyko (3-0, 1 KO) scored a workmanlike decision over local Daniel Przewieslik (2-7-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 40-36 across the cards.

Glad to see this. Glowacki is always fun to watch and always brings the pain. He'll be back in the mix soon enough.
