Glowacki Pulls Off Stunner Stoppage in Round 11 Over Champ Huck

Marco Huck defended his cruiser crown in the TV opener on Spike, on a PBC card Friday night, unfolding at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, and things were looking solid in the second half of the fight for the long time titlist. His experience was showing…but Glowacki kept working, and a sweeping left and right follow, sent Huck down in the 11th. He got up and Glow went in on him, forcing the ref to halt the event.

Glow shrugged off a knockdown in the sixth and almost had the plug pulled on him, so props for his fortitude. Yes indeed, it was a shocker ending, but since Glow wasn’t fading, it wasn’t out of the realm of the possible.

In the first, the Serbian born Huck (38-2-1 entering; lives in Germany ), in his US debut, was looking for his 14th defense. Glowacki (24-0 entering), who wanted to become a boxer when he saw Mike Tyson scrap, was making his American debut as well. Huck the righty wanted to land a lead right. Glow was aggressive, dipped and ripped, and landed a right hook to great effect end of round. Glow worked hard and had his crowd buzzing in the second. In the third, Glow was the busier man and you wondered about Huck’s game plan, and whether he was sharp on this night. In round four, Glow kept moving his head, and Huck found it hard to get a bead on him. He edged Huck back, and Huck offered a weak jab and not too much O.

In the fifth, Huck landed a counter right, his best shot. Then he brought out his left hook. He was heating up…The next round, Huck sent Glow down and he was almost out. The left hook did it…He got up and landed a nasty hurtful left. In the seventh, Glow perked up and landed jabs. He didn’t fade like I thought he was looking like he might. In the eighth, Glow backed Huck up. He landed to the body and then ate some Huck leather. A left hand buzzed the Pole. To round nine…Huck was watching a lot. Round ten saw blood on right eye of Glow. Also on the bridge of his nose…A Huck answer right was the punch of the round.

In round 11, down went Huck. This was the first time for him. He got up but Glow finished him off, the ref stepped in. It was a solid stunner of a stoppage and why you got to know, it ain’t over till…

The PBC has given us a lot of junk but that said did produce a gem of a fight last night between Huck and Glowacki. It is definitely on the short list for fight of the year. Glowacki looked strong early and Huck seemed unusually sluggish. But Huck started to come on and looked to be turning the tide of the fight in the middle rounds. I thought, as I am sure a lot of people did, that when he landed that beautiful left hook in the 6th to Glowacki's head and put him down that the fight was over. Glowacki was badly hurt but started throwing back immediately when Huck came in for the finish. Those ten seconds of the two exchanging might have been the most action packed moment of the year so far and also sen a message to Huck that Glowacki was not going anywhere. And then Huck went on to build a lead as the fight progressed but it was edge of the seat excitement as both were constantly throwing with bad intentions. Glowacki had to know he was probably down on the cards in the 11th and what a moment that was when he scored the knockdown. Huck broke a cardinal sin in boxing and pulled straight back with his hands down. Glowacki was smart enough to know to throw at that time and scored the punches that put Huck down and ultimately on the way out. Glowacki finished too whereas Huck was unable to finish in the 6th. What a fight and will get a lot of consideration at year end for fight of the year.

Why didnt Huck ever fight Guillermo Jones, Hows about Krystov Wlodarcyzk? Were us Cruiserweight fans under illusion all along?


-amayseng :

nice shift punching by Glowacki, if he meant to be in that position or not for the first knockdown

Great fight. I thought Captain Huck found his rhythm and then bang he is on the way to the hospital. Best fight so far for the PBC. Question.. Is either of these two fighters with PBC? If not ,kind of funny.

Huck is but Glowacki is not. The reason this fight came about is that Glowacki was Huck's mandatory.

Howbout an all Polish title fight! Glowacki vs Wlodarcyzk!

Yes, very good fight and excellent come from behind win by KO on Glowacki's part. Marco Huck basically rushed his punches - almost in desperation at times - all night. He also predictably stuck with the good old 1 (left jab) - 2 (right cross) - 3 (left hook), a little too often (if his goal was to not get timed); particularly given that oftentimes many of his punches didn't land cleanly and he was leaving himself open for counters; from a guy that could punch. And if that wasn't bad enough - unlike Glowacki - Huck also, often failed to work his strategy and power shots off of his jab. Add to it all he often smothered his work once it was set in motion too. I am sure Huck will go back and look at his performance and the issues it exhibited, and at least find solace in the fact that there are improvements to be had. However, the fact that many of Huck's mistakes were not forced errors is something his team really need to look at; for reasons given below. It must be said that it was a very good Knockdown (on Huck's part) of Glowacki in round 6, via the left hook. Krzysztof Glowacki was as tough as they come, and he showed huge heart/dedication to get up after the KD; let alone get up and go on to win by KO. Actually . . . Krzysztof Glowacki's fighting style is not entirely dissimilar to Krzysztof Wlodarcyzk's (Diablo). So perhaps - as BC says - they can (disregard the slight weight divisional difference {Krzysztof Wlodarcyzk was a light heavyweight} and) get it on for the rights to say who is the toughest Pole. All up Marco Huck vs Krzysztof Glowacki was a pretty good fight. Marco Huck was - for the most part - very reckless coming in as above-mentioned and with his chin exposed, so perhaps - with hindsight - it's fair to say that it was only a matter of time before he got caught. At the end (round 11) Huck rushed in with a desperate one - two combination that was mostly blocked by Krzysztof Glowacki's guard. As Huck came forward with his final attempt, his right hand dropped as he threw his left and then immediately after Marco's right was dispatched (into Glowacki's gaurd) it too was left low; thus providing Krzysztof Glowacki with an easy target for his counter left hook - that was made all the more easier by the fact that Huck himself pretty much remained in position after executing his above-mentioned and ineffective one - two combination. Put simply Huck - whom I think was just ahead on the scorecards - delivered a poorly executed, predictable, defensively liable, and desperate combination, and then, effectively, pulled straight back with his hands down, and got knocked out for it; in round 11 by Krzysztof Glowacki. That, in addition to the fact that . . . . . not only was Glowacki was a lot tougher than it seemed Huck expected - but also once Huck tasted Glowacki's power in the first quarter of the fight it seemed to both change Marco's game-plan and also convince him that he was not going to be able to easily push Glowacki around . . . . . seemed to be the storyline of the fight. :) :) :)
