Glowacki stops Karl in 5th
By Allan Fox: Undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) #1 cruiserweight contender Krzysztof “Glowacki (23-0, 15 KOs) made easy work of 30-year-old Thierry Karl (31-6, 19 KOs) on Saturday night in stopping him in the 5th round in a stay busy fight at the Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki, Poland.
Glowacki, 28, knocked Karl down several times in the 5th round before the fight was finally halted.
With this victory, Glowacki retained his WBO Inter-Continental strap. He’s hoping to get a title shot against WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck. That’s going to be a significant step up in class for Golwacki, because up to this point in his 6 year pro career the best opposition he’s faced has been Ismail Abdoul, Karl, Varol Vekiloglu and Richard Hall. Glowacki might not be ready to take on someone as good as Huck considering the lack of opposition he’s faced during his career.
