Krzysztof Wlodarczyk Continues Comeback, Decisions Leon Harth

By Luke Furman 

Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (52-3-1, 37 KO) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Leon Harth (14-2, 10 KO) at Hala Orbita in Wroclaw, Poland. The scores were 116-112, 115-113 and 116-112.

The fight didn't have much action with Harth being defensive and not electing to engage. Wlodarczyk was content to use his boxing abilities and experience to defeat his cagey opponent. The Polish fighter is hoping to get himself a world title fight in 2017.

The former two-time cruiserweight world champion was back in May when he stepped in the ring in Sosnowiec, Poland. The dangerous veteran stopped Kai Kurzawa (37-5, 25 KOs) in four rounds to capture the vacant IBF Inter-Continental cruiserweight belt. Wlodarczyk battered his opponent and had him down in the third and the fourth.

This was the third fight for "El Diabo" since losing his WBC world title to current champion "in recess" Grigory Drozd of Russia in September 2014. He came into that fight off a lengthy layoff.

Prior to that loss, Wlodarczyk was on a very solid run where he stopped for champion Giacobbe Fragomeni in six rounds in a bout held at the UIC Pavillion in Chicago and traveled over to Russia where he got off the floor to knock out Olympic gold medal winner Rakhim Chakhkiev in eight rounds.

In March, Wlodarczyk needed only two rounds to blast out gate-keeper Valery Brudov (42-8, 28 KO), who lost three of his last four bouts - including a January decision loss to Noel Gevor in Germany.

Brudov went down in the second round from a series of punches and then his corner threw in the towel as the boxer appeared to be in trouble. A replay showed that Brudov may have injured his right knee when he fell.
