Former Heavyweight Contender Adam Kownacki Suffers Third Consecutive Loss

The Barclays Center was packed on March 7, 2020 as Adam Kownacki hoped to extend his unbeaten streak to 21 fights. Despite Kownacki being a heavy favorite heading into the fight, Robert Helenius has other plans. After falling behind in the early goings of the fight, Helenius managed to rally and stop Kownacki in the fourth round. More than a year later, the two men shared the ring yet again in Las Vegas, Nevada. This time around, the result was the same and more decisive. Helenius battered Kownacki for five rounds until the fight was stopped in the sixth round.

Adam Kownacki hoping ‘sacrifice’ with family pays off in pivotal fight

Something had to change.  Adam Kownacki, after surging out to a 20-0 record as a pro, had seen a career on the cusp of title shots skid dramatically wayward. Back-to-back losses to Robert Helenius moved his record to 20-2. More importantly, it removed Kownacki from the conversation of the elites in the heavyweight division and contention to earn championship fights.  Those two bouts weren’t the same for the 33-year-old Polish native, even beyond handing him his first setbacks. He entered the ring with the wrong mindset, and he knows it. But it was a mindset he had never experienced before.  “You’ve got to...

Adam Kownacki & his desires to become HW champion

Adam Kownacki looks to bounce back against Ali Even Demirezen after suffering two consecutive losses. This Saturday on Showtime, the theme going into the event will be “redemption.” Why redemption because the main event features former two-division champion Danny Garcia (36-3), who is coming off a 19-month layoff and losing to unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. (28-0). Serving as the co-main event, heavyweight Adam Kownacki (20-2) looks to bounce back from two straight losses by fighting Ali Eren Demirezen (16-1).

Robert Helenius Beats Down Adam Kownacki, Stops Him in Sixth

LAS VEGAS – Robert Helenius proved Saturday night that his first stoppage of Adam Kownacki wasn’t a fluke. The 37-year-old Helenius basically beat up a defenseless Kownacki throughout their rematch, until referee Celestino Ruiz determined that Kownacki shouldn’t continue during the sixth round of their scheduled 12-round heavyweight fight at T-Mobile Arena. Ruiz deducted a point from Kownacki for low blows in the fifth round and halted their one-sided rematch in the sixth round because Kownacki, whose left eye was swollen shut, had taken too much punishment on the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder pay-per-view undercard.
