Adam Kownacki is a Polish professional boxer.
As of February 2020, Kownacki is ranked as a top ten heavyweight boxer by The Ring magazine.
He is currently 20-0.
Kownacki draws a big, largely-Polish contingent to Barclays Center in his hometown of Brooklyn. In September 2018, he won a unanimous decision over former world champion Charles Martin (25-2-1, 23 KOs) in an all-out brawl that left his boisterous Polish fans giddy.
On January 26, 2019, Kownacki took another major step toward a world title shot with a second-round TKO of former world title challenger Gerald Washington (19-2-1, 12 KOs).
“It’s time to continue my goal of getting a title shot,” said Kownacki. “I'm a man on a mission to become the first Polish, Polish-American heavyweight champion of the world. No one will stop me.”
Kownacki returned to the ring on August 3 versus former world title challenger Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola at Barclays. The two warriors produced a classic heavyweight brawl, landing a combined 667 punches and throwing 2,172, both CompuBox heavyweight records. In the end, Kownacki's skill and firepower were too much as he won a 12-round unanimous decision by scores of 118-110, 117-111, 117-111.
