Photos: Krzysztof Zimnoch Gets Revenge, Stops Mike Mollo

By Luke Furman,

Azoty Arena, ul. Szafera 3/5/7, Szczecin, Poland - Polish heavyweight contender Krzysztof Zimnoch (21-1-1, 14 KO) secured the sweetest victory of his career, when he stopped veteran Mike Mollo (21-7-1, 13 KO) in six rounds.

Unlike their first encounter, Zimnoch was explosive with his punches, battering Mollo with hard shots around the ring. Zimnoch broke him down, round by round, until Mollo had nothing left in the tank and the fight was stropped.

Zimnoch got revenge for a first round knockout loss, which took place practically a year ago by Mollo. Rising in the ranks, it was big upset when Zimnoch was caught cold in the first round and stopped by Mollo at 2:08 of the round.

Mollo had one contest after that, and lost a seven round technical decision to Andriy Rudenko in May of the same year.

Zimnoch had also bounced back after his first defeat, by stopping division veteran Konstantin Airich in May of 2016 in four rounds. And then he came back in October to win an eight round split decision over Marcin Rekowski.

Back to back solid wins for Zimnoch. Nice to see he's moving up the ladder a bit. Wouldn't mind seeing him fight Wach or Wawrzyk in the near future
