Kownacki Defeats Arreola: What’s Next for Heavyweight Division?

in #sportslast year

Undefeated heavyweight Adam Kownacki(20-0, 15 KOs) added another win last night with a unanimous decision over veteran Chris Arreola.

This fight was truly action packed as these two men set a record for punches thrown in a heavyweight bout with 2172 punches thrown and 667 punches landed in total.

The previous record was set back in 1997 with Ike Ibeabuchi vs David Tua, the combined punch total was 1730 thrown and 650 landed.

This puts Kownacki closer to the top of the division, and he could be two or three fights from a title shot at this point.

I’d like to see him take on Alexander Povetkin, assuming Povetkin gets past Hughie Fury later this month.

No matter who he fights, his style is entertaining and it will be fun to watch him against the very best in the division.

Did you get a chance to check out Kownacki vs Arreola? let me know what you thought of the match.

@doitvoluntarily Hello dear friend. This had to have been a great fight. Unfortunately I finished very late yesterday, I could not see any contact sport, on Saturdays I usually see box and mma fights.
Thank you very much for sharing this information
I wish you a prosperous week

Kownacki is a solid fighter, like Andy Ruiz jr, very unassuming, he has skills, power, and a chin too. He looked a bit slow and easy to hit against Arreola, definitely has room for improvement in his speed and stamina but he’s a guy to keep an eye on and most certainly should not be taken lightly. Peace.
