Glowacki stuns Huck with KO
- Updated: August 14, 2015
With a chance at history for making the most title defenses at cruiserweight, Marco Huck (48-3-1, 26 KOs) was instead on the receiving end of a stoppage loss from new titlist Krzysztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) in an action-packed fight.
As the co-feature of the Premier Boxing Champions card on Spike TV, the fight had its fair share of momentum shifts, as Glowacki got off to a good start by being aggressive and landing hard punches in the first few rounds. At the end of the first round, Glowacki landed a right hook to the temple of Huck that wobbled him, and he remained the busier fighter throughout the next three rounds.
In the fifth however, Huck began picking up the pace and had success with his own combinations.
A big left hook in the opening minute of the sixth round by Huck put Glowacki down, who was in bad shape. He got up at the nine-count and somehow recovered, trading punches with Huck until the end of the round.
In the 11th, Glowacki landed a one-two that suddenly sent Huck down to the canvas. Though Huck got up, he appeared to be in pretty bad shape and after a barrage of punches in the corner, Glowacki nearly knocked Huck out of the ring, prompting the referee to stop the fight with Huck down and out.
“The US market is now open to me, and fans around the world are going to have to respect the cruiserweight division now,” said Glowacki after the win.
“When I was knocked down in the sixth round I didn’t know where I was and it took me a whole round to regain myself. I still cannot hear well. I was listening to my corner though and when I heard that there was only one minute left in the eleventh round I knew I had to come on strong.”
