Mike Lee, Adam Kownacki, Ivan Golub, Sulecki Win at Barclays

By Thomas Gerbasi

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - With the Polish contingent loud and in his corner for all eight rounds, unbeaten heavyweight Adam Kownacki didn?t get the knockout against Washington, D.C.?s Danny Kelly, but the Brooklynite did dominate from start to finish, winning a clear-cut eight-round unanimous decision.

There were no knockdowns in the bout, won by Kownacki (13-0, 10 KOs) by scores of 80-72 twice and 79-73.

Kelly, who only threw back sporadically from his high guard throughout the night as Kownacki fired away with both hands, falls to 9-2-1 with 8 knockouts.

Popular Chicago light heavyweight Mike Lee had little difficulty in his bout with Rhode Island?s Joseph Gardner, moving to 16-0 (10 KOs) with a third-round TKO victory.

Lee scored two second-round knockdowns, and he continued his blitz in the third, bringing in referee Tony Chiarantano to stop the bout 43 seconds into the round.

Gardner falls to 11-9-1 with 1 KO.

Brooklyn junior welterweight Julian Sosa got a rousing reception from the Barclays Center crowd, and he didn't disappoint, blasting through Missouri's Bryan Timmons in two rounds.

Body shots were the order of the day for Sosa (4-0-1, 1 KO), who scored two knockdowns in the second before referee Benjy Esteves stepped in to stop the bout. The official time was 1:48.

Timmons falls to 3-7 with 3 KOs.

Ecuador native Carlos Gongora impressively dispatched Edmond, Oklahoma's Derrick Adkins in four rounds, improving to 4-0 with 3 knockouts.

Now living in Brooklyn, Gongora scored three knockdowns in the bout, with the final body shot-induced trip to the deck prompting referee Shada Murdaugh to intervene and stop the light heavyweight bout in at 1:58 of the fourth.

Kissimmee middleweight Botirsher Obidov won a wild four-rounder over Boca Raton's Ramil Gadzhiev in a clash of unbeatens. Scores were 39-37 across the board for Obidov, now 4-0-1 with 1 KO. Gadzhiev falls to 1-1 with 1 KO.

Brooklyn's Ivan Golub improved to 10-0 (7 KOs) with a first-round stoppage of Union City?'s Juan Rodriguez Jr. (12-4, 5 KOs). Two knockdowns forced referee Benjy Esteves to step in at the 2:41 mark of the junior middleweight bout.

Polish middleweight prospect Maciej Sulecki remained unbeaten with a seventh-round stoppage of Chicago's Derrick Findley. Showing good fundamentals, the Warsaw product was in control from the start, rocking Findley in the first and fifth, with referee Shada Murdaugh ultimately stepping in to stop the bout at 1:29 of round seven.

Sulecki moves to 22-0 with 7 KOs; Findley falls to 22-18-1 with 14 KOs.
