Pawel Kolodziej Knocks Parfait Amougui Amougou Out

By Przemysław Osiak

After the opening three rounds of the battle for the WBF cruiserweight title between Paweł Kołodziej (26-0, 15 KO) and Parfait Amougui Amougou (8-3-1, 7 KO), it seemed that the unbeaten Pole was on the right track to an easy victory. Kołodziej was successfully avoiding the rival's hooks and countering him impressively.

Amougou turned out to be unusually ambitious and strived to surprise the 25-year-old by trying to last until the end of the contest which took place in Krynica (Poland), the hometown of Kołodziej. However, the Pole managed to keep himself cool and knocked the Frenchman out, retaining his WBF belt.

Kołodziej was boxing very cautiously and was controlling the situation in the ring when a visible crisis reached him in the round ten.

The Pole managed to catch a second breath and started the twelfth and final round extraordinarily motivated. When the Frenchman lost his concentration, Kołodziej dealt a powerful right cross after left jab. Amaogou was barely standing on his feet and "Harnaś" decided to take a chance by knocking out the rival in front of the hometown audience. Kołodziej was bombarding his opponent with series of punches and dealt a final right cross making Amougou land on the canvas. The referee Michael Hook stopped the fight without counting.
