Tomasz Adamek, Glowacki, Masternak Pick Up Wins in Poland

By Luke Furman

Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland - In the main event, former two division champion Tomasz Adamek (51-5, 30 KO) returned after a layoff of just over a year to win a ten round unanimous decision over Solomon Haumono (24-4-2, 21 KO).

Adamek, even at this advanced stage of his career, was too good for Haumono. The scores were 100-90, 99-91 and 99-91.

Adamek had been out of the ring since getting knocked out in ten rounds by Eric Molina last April in Krakow. Adamek actually retired following that loss and appeared to be done with his career, but by the end of 2016 he began discussing the idea of coming back.

Haumono had been out of the ring since last July, when he was knocked out in four rounds by current WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker.

In the co-feature, former WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Glowacki (27-1, 17 KO) was back in full force by stopping previously undefeated Hizni Altunkaya (29-1, 17 KOs) in six rounds. Glowacki was originally scheduled to face Brian Howard (12-1, 9 KO).

For Glowacki, it will be his first fight since losing a twelve round decision, and his WBO title, to Oleksandr Usyk last September. He wants to work his way back to another world title opportunity very soon.

In a crossroads fight, a battle of cruiserweights saw Mateusz Masternak (39-4, 26 KO) continue his comeback with a ten round unanimous decision over veteran Ismail Sillakh (25-4, 19 KO). The scores were 96-92, 95-93, 95-93.

Both fighters were looking for a big win to continue a potential run to a title shot. And both boxers were highly touted amateurs and being pushed heavily in the pro ranks before each suffered his first career defeat.

Also on the card, undefeated prospect Maciej Sulecki (25-0, 10 KO) continued his progression by scoring three knockdowns and taking out Damian Bonelli (24-2, 22 KOs) in three rounds of action.

[QUOTE=aretrospective;17798221]Adamek has had more comebacks than Cher. Lost at the top level, so dropped down a level. Lost at the 2nd level, so retired. Un-retired to beat a guy from the 3rd tier (or below) of heavyweights, and will probably…

Adamek has had many major wars. He will ride off into the sunset in a longterm nursing center for brain dead patients.. Very sad he's still fighting.

[MENTION=202075]aretrospective[/MENTION] I think the most talented polish boxer was Andrzej Gołota. Even though he never won a championship (he fought 4 times, with Lewis and Brester he obviously lost, but with Ruiz and Byrd he should won unfortunately scoring judges…
