Rozanski KOs Szpilka in one

By Przemek Garczarczyk

In a short, but spectacular WBC bridgerweight eliminator, Lukasz Rozanski (14-0, 13 KOs) scored a first round knockout over former heavyweight title challenger Artur Szpilka (24-5, 16 KOs) on Sunday night at the Hala na Podpromiu in Rzeszow, Poland. Szpilka dropped Rozanski in the first ten seconds, but Rozanski roared back to floor Szpilka three times to end it in the very same round!

In the co-feature, cruiserweight Mateusz Masternak (44-5, 29 KOs) took a wide decision over previously unbeaten Adam Balski (15-1, 9 KOs). Scores were 98-92, 99-91 2x.

  • This is going to be great for boxing. I love the bridgerweight division. Very excited.

    • Jennifer: Agree. So many hw’s are just too small fighting these massive hw’s now days. Wondering if they should not have made the weight lower than 224 (would say about 215?). Once the division gets serious there are going to be boxers pulling weight for weigh in and possibly weighing 230 or more on fight night.

  • Stupid name, “bridgerweight”. Call it heavyweight and then super-heavyweight – and fix up the rest of the antiquated senseless weight classes too while you’re at it.

    • Better yet go back to eight weight classes with one champion in each when everyone knew who the real champions were. All these extra weight classes four pounds apart do nothing but increase sanctioning fees for corrupt organizations.

    • Agree, would sound a lot better, heavyweight and super heavyweight.

    • Agreed, but there will never be a “Super Heavyweight,” nor should there be. “Super Cruiserweight” works best IMHO.

    • @Sean That Szpilka that lost is nowhere near the same now as he was then. Have you ever heard of punch resistance you fool?
      He is past his best now and shopworn was in his prime when he fought Wilder.

      • I don’t care about that. My point is that Wilders a bum not really anything about spiltka or whatever his name is

      • Joe: True, it was over 5 years ago Szpilka lost to Wilder and has taken some beating since then. Szpilka always puts up a good fight, but unfortunately, bravely so, he takes on anyone they put in front of him. All 5 his losses have been KO losses. Getting worried about his health.

  • You can’t win, Rock! A Bridgerweight like Rozanski will kill you to death inside of three rounds!

  • Stop with this “Bridgerweight” nonsense. Call it what it is – either “Super Cruiserweight” or “Junior Heavyweight.” Pick one or the other, but stop trying to invent a new name just for the sake of inventing a new name.
