Two Polish heavyweight boxers, Adam Kownacki and Artur Szpilka, have faced off in a high-profile bout in New York.

Kownacki unexpectedly emerged victorious in Saturday’s fight, which was billed as “the Battle of Poland.” He stopped Szpilka, a former world title challenger, in the fourth round.

With his win, Kownacki made the move from “prospect” to “contender,” boxing commentators said.

"I always knew that I had him,” Kownacki said after the showdown. “From the first shot I hit him in the body, I knew he didn't have enough. My pressure was too much.”
