Watch: Krzysztof Glowacki upsets Marco Huck [Full fight video]


Poland's Krzysztof Glowacki, 29, scores a stunning upset versus Marco Huck of their cruiserweight title match on Saturday at the Prudential Center, New Jersey. 

Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) retains his undefeated record and took Huck's title home via knockout in Round 11. He was struggling early in the fight as the champion was landing hard shots from outside before stepping back and doubling up with defense.

In the 6th round, Huck (38-3-1, 26 KOs) dropped Glowacki with a thunderous left hook around 2:19 minute mark of the round. 

Flat on his back, Glowacki pick himself up and although obviously hurt from the knockdown, instead of holding, he fought back with all his might. He landed some but of course taking a lot also from the charging defending champion who wanted to keep his title intact, but Glowacki was able to survive the round even landed shots that Huck surely felt.

The end of Huck's title reign came in the 11th round when Glowacki landed a left cross and a straight left that put down Huck 47 seconds remaining in the round. The crowd went wild! Huck beat the count but with unsteady legs. The hungry undefeated challenger unleashed undefended flurries that sent Huck down for good. Glowacki looked like my mother hanging laundry up on the ropes. Huck's back were on the ropes that prevented him from going out.

See for yourself on the below Huck-Glowacki full fight video.
