Ambitious Polish heavyweight Adam Kownacki could be only a few fights from a world title shot as he hopes to become the first world heavyweight champion from Poland.
Born in Lomza and now based in Brooklyn, Kownacki has beaten three title challengers in his last four fights, the unbeaten contender was identified last week as a potential challenger for Deontay Wilder later this year if the WBC champion does not agree on a fight with Anthony Joshua.
“I want to fight the best, so if we could make a deal, of course… My resume looks very good, compared to other top 10 fighters. I’m just waiting to get my shot.”
Kownacki holds his success to being an aggressive fighter “I go in and I try to get a knockout. The amount of punches I throw is amazing.”
29-year-old, Adam Kownacki is willing to fight against any heavyweight as long as it gives him a shot at becoming the world heavyweight champion “It doesn’t really matter to me who it is.
I just want to get a title shot and become the first Polish heavyweight champion of the world. That’s been my goal, ever since I started boxing to be a heavyweight champion of the world. I’m getting much closer, and I can’t wait to get the opportunity and prove myself.”
