Adam Kownacki Might Not Have Reached The Prime However He Gave Us Some Nice Motion Fights


By the point you learn this text, Polish heavyweight slugger Adam Kownacki might effectively have introduced his retirement from the game. The truth is, Kownacki, 20-4(15) completely ought to name it a profession. It’s the fighter’s name, in fact, appropriately, however Kownacki actually does appear to be executed. And although Kownacki fell in need of reaching the highest, or of even preventing for a world title, the 34 12 months previous from Lomza positive gave it his all in all of his fights.

The loss to Joe Cusumano on Saturday’s card in New York marked Kownacki’s fourth straight loss, with three of those losses coming through stoppage. It was motion combat on Saturday, an actual back-and-forth slugfest, however Kownacki took a variety of punishment (with some folks pondering the combat ought to have been stopped in Cusumano’s favour earlier than the eighth spherical TKO got here), whereas his punch resistance didn’t have a look at all good, and Kownacki regarded gradual and simple to hit.

These components, added to the at occasions robust profession Kownacki has had, with him partaking in plenty of give and take (principally take simply these days) wars, make it appear to be retirement is the one wise possibility for the immensely likeable “Babyface.”

If it’s the finish for Kownacki, as loads of us assume it ought to be (however once more, it’s the fighter’s name and actually no person else’s), we owe him a giant thanks for the good motion he gave us. Going professional in October of 2009, this after a good sufficient newbie profession, Kownacki profitable the NY Golden Gloves twice, the 20 12 months previous fought in New York, as he would do regularly. In time, the I’ll hit you, you hit me, aggressive-minded slugger would thrill with wins over Artur Szpilka (a Poland Vs Poland battle), Iago Kiladze, “Prince” Charles Martin, Gerald Washington, and Chris Arreola.

Good fighters, crushed in good fights. There was now speak of Kownacki difficult WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder. Who is aware of how that combat may need gone had it occurred? What we do know is that this, Kownacki would have given it his all had he fought Wilder. Certain, Kownacki may need been blitzed, however there’s a probability he may need prolonged Wilder and brought him into some deep and scorching water in doing so. However Kownacki as an alternative bumped into Robert Helenius, this in March of 2020, Kownacki being upset through fourth spherical stoppage. The pandemic delayed the rematch by some months, however when it got here, Kownacki was stopped once more. Sadly, it’s been all downhill for Kownacki since.

Kownacki by no means had something like or tight defence, however he had chin and loads of coronary heart and braveness. The chin has eroded over the course of time/variety of onerous fights fought, but Kownacki has retained his coronary heart and braveness. As followers know, this will so simply be a really actual hazard for an ageing fighter. 34 isn’t previous, particularly for a heavyweight, however Kownacki regarded deal older on Saturday evening.

Get pleasure from your retirement, Adam Kownacki, and thanks for the nice fights.
