Boxing fans may remember Glowacki as the fighter that knocked out Marco Huck in order to win the WBO title in August of last year. While Aleksandr Usyk is an Olympic gold medalist that many have high hopes for.
Glowacki was knocked down by Huck, who appeared to be in control for much of the fight until he was caught in the 11th round. One of Glowacki's major advantages in that fight was his southpaw stance, an advantage that will be negated against Usyk (who is also a southpaw).
The one advantage that Glowacki will hold in this fight is his experience, as Usyk has only fought 9 times against low-level competition and has never been the distance in a championship fight. Glowacki will also be fighting in his home nation of Poland.
While Usyk will have a height and reach advantage, and is considered by boxing pundits to be the more skilled of the pair, by far.
