Rzesszow, Poland – In the main event of this big Knockout Promotions´s card, rising heavyweight Lukas Rozanski (11-0, 10 KOs) knocked out Izu Ugonoh (18-2, 15 KOs) in the fourth of a scheduled non-title ten rounder.

According to Rozanski dominated the fight and floored Ugonoh twice in the fourth – but with the final punch landing with Ugonoh already down so it was a controversial ending – although Ugonoh’s time was quickly coming to a close. The referee did not penalize Rozanski for the final blow and counted Ugonoh out.

Ugonoh was hurt several times in the fight and appeared to have issues with his overall punch resistance.


Ugonoh has not been very active in the last few years. He suffered his first career defeat in a pure war with Dominic Breazeale in February 2017, and saw himself stopped in the fifth round.

He came back more than a year later, to stop Fred Kassi in May of 2018.

And then he sat out until the contest with Rozanski, which also came more than a year later since his last ring outing.

Light heavyweight Marek Matya (16-1-2) drew over ten rounds against domestic rival Pawel Stepien (16-0-1). It was scored 96-94 for Stepien, 97-93 Matya and 95-95.

In other action, reigning EBU middleweight champ Kamil Szeremeta (20-0) outscored Edwin Palacios (12-11-1) over eight and in another middleweight contest Fedir Cerkashyn (13-0) outscored Australian Wes Capper (20-3-1).
