Adam Kownacki Hopes To Put Things On Track Against Ali Eren Demirezen
Adam Kownacki (20-2, 15 KOs) hopes to return to winning ways on July 30.
The former heavyweight champion will be battling against Ali Eren Demirezen at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.
Kownacki was undefeated and at the peak of his powers as he was heading for a shot at the world title. However, he ran into a 6-foot-6 brick wall named Robert Helenius, who stopped the 33-year-old in consecutive fights in 2020 and last year.
The aggressive style of Kownacki, which has been one of the biggest strengths of his career so far, totally exposed him to unnecessary risks which Helenius took full advantage of. He believes that the fans will see an improved fight in the upcoming weeks.
“I just have had to work on my footwork and keeping my hands up,” The Polish boxer said.
“I have to be smart. One shot can change everything. It was some bad luck getting caught in each fight. I tried to make the best out of it and leave everything in the ring. It was a life lesson.”
“I’m coming back stronger. I’ve been sparring with no issues to the broken orbital bone. I’m feeling great and I can’t wait to return.”
