First, a word of introduction. Let’s go back to January 2017. Andrzej Wawrzyk was on the final straight to prepare for the fight for the world championship with Deontay Wilder. But the Pole did not receive this honor because stanozolol, i.e. doping, was detected in his body. – It was a nasty business, the most difficult time of my life. If a man knew that he was taking something, if he were aware, he would probably take it better. When I found out that an illegal substance was detected, I broke down. I just went out. I did not accept such a blow in my life – explained Wawrzyk to “Wyborcza”.
Soon after, Wawrzyk retired from the media, rarely giving interviews. This means that his last fight was the victory over Albert “Dragon” Sosnowski in September 2016. Earlier, he beautifully knocked out Marcin Rekowski. He won 33 out of 34 professional fights. He lost only once – in 2013 with Alexander Povetkin. The Pole withstood almost three rounds in the ring with the Russian. After the third knockdown, the judge interrupted the duel, so the Russian enjoyed the WBA championship belt. But let’s go back to Wawrzyk, who returned to the ring in September after a six-year break. And it was an extremely painful return.
At the Suzuki Boxing Night 17 gala in Łomża, however, Wawrzyk was very badly knocked out by Michał Bołoz (4-4-2, 4 KO). And this is already in the second round.
