Tommy Coyle Floors Kielczweski, Wins Unanimous Decision

By Keith Idec

Tommy Coyle came to Ryan Kielczweski’s backyard Saturday night, dropped him and beat Kielczweski by unanimous decision.

England’s Coyle (25-4, 12 KOs) dropped Kielczweski in the seventh round and defeated Kielczweski comfortably on all three scorecards in their 10-round junior welterweight fight (99-90, 98-91, 96-93). The bigger, stronger Coyle won in his American debut, which was part of the Demetrius Andrade-Walter Kautondokwa undercard at TD Garden in Boston.

Kielczweski, of nearby Quincy, Massachusetts, slipped to 29-4 (11 KOs).


Coyle spent much of the last three rounds using his legs and protecting the lead he built during the first seven rounds. He was active enough in the 10th, though, to land a hard right hand early in it.

Kielczweski connected with a flush overhand right at the 1:15 mark of the ninth round. For a second straight round, Coyle didn’t do much during that ninth round.

Kielczweski bought himself some time early in the eighth round by landing a hard left to Coyle’s body. Coyle spent much of the rest of the eighth round moving away from Kielczweski, who was knocked down during the seventh round.

After hammering Kielczweski with a right to the body, Coyle clipped Kielczweski with a left hand to the temple that caused a delayed knockdown with 1:15 to go in the seventh round. Kielczweski showed a huge heart by getting up and fending off Coyle’s onslaught to make it to the end of the seventh round.

Coyle landed most of the hard punches during the fifth round, during which he hit Kielczweski to the head and body. Coyle and Kielczweski spent much of an entertaining third round trading short shots from close distances.

Coyle connected with an overhand right with just over two minutes to go in the second round, several seconds after he was warned for a low blow. Kielczweski landed a left hook that knocked Coyle off balance with about 20 seconds left in a largely uneventful first round.
