Cruiserweight Contender Odds from Poland


This Saturday night sees a major boxing card in Poland that puts the spotlight firmly on the 200 pound cruiserweight division. Poland has been a hotbed for fighters in this weight class and in Krsysztof Wlodarczyk and Krysztof Glowacki both looking to notch victories and stay in title contention.

Glowacki (28-1) is a former WBO world champion who lost his belt to Oleksandr Usyk back in September of 2016. Since then he has won two fights in a row as he looks to position himself for a world title challenge.

The cruiserweight division is awaiting a unified world champion as the aforementioned Usyk is set to face Murat Gassiev this coming May in the finals of the World Boxing Super Series eight man tournament. Glowacki is a massive favorite to stay on the winning track and you can look for him to lobby for a world title shot with a win.

In the case of Wlodarczyk, he took part in the World Boxing Super Series tournament but he fell to eventual tournament finalist Gassiev via TKO in jut the third round. At 53-4-1, Wlodarczyk is very experienced, but at 36 years old and after his loss to Gassiev there is a question as to whether the mileage will catch up to him. This is his first fight back since the loss to Gassiev so he is likely further away from a title shot that Glowacki.

Nevertheless, both fights are scheduled for eight rounds and the odds indicate tune-up fights for Glowacki and Wlodarczyk.
