Tarver and Cunningham fought to a split draw in 12-round bout Friday night in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.  Tarver, who weighed in at 217 lbs. looked sluggish and was not busy enough.  He picked his spots during the fight and found success landing the straight left.  As for Cunningham, he was the busier fighter and seemed to be landing more, however his punches did not often find the target and lacked power to do any serious damage.

According to CompuBox punch statistics, Cunningham landed 154 of 678 punches (23 percent) while Tarver connected on 141 of 450 blows (31 percent).  The fight promised more action since both fighters needed to look impressive and exciting in order to be considered for a possible shot against WBC Champion Deontay Wilder.  It didn’t help matters that the previous fight (Huck vs Glowacki) was a thrilling fight and probably a contender for fight of the year.  In the end both men were disappointed and felt they should have won and believe they should have a shot at a big title fight.

The stage was set for Germany native Marco Huck (38-3-1, 26 KOs) to make his debut in the United States and break England’s Johnny Nelson’s record of 12 title defenses. Someone forgot to mention to Krzysztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) that he should play along because he schocked the world and stopped Huck in the 11th round in a very entertaining fight. Glowacki showed no respect to the former Cruiserweight champ and began his attack from round one. In a recent interview he promised to punish Huck, batter him throughout their fight, and stop him. Someone please call him “Glowackidamus” because that is exactly what transpired during their fight.Things didn’t go as smoothly as he predicted, in fact, Glowacki came close to being stopped in the 6th round when Huck connected him with a wide left hook that sent the Polish fighter to the canvas. Glowacki slowly worked himself back into the fight and in the 11th round he caught Huck with a left hook, followed by a straight right that dropped him. The former champ recovered but with just 30 seconds left in the round, Glowacki jumped on him and landed a barrage of punches forcing the referee to stop the fight. With the win Krzysztof Glowacki picks up the WBO Cruiserweight title and cements himself as a force to be reckoned with in the division.
