Debut delight for Karol Dlugosz – ‘Krusher’ wins on big Polish TV show

Karol Dlugosz got his pro career off to the perfect start with victory on Queensbury Poland’s inaugural show.

The Ulster Elite heavyweight title winner and National Elite semi finalist was a big part of the new promotional set ups pro bow and played his part on a successful show.

The Polish-born fighter, who has been living in Ireland for 12 years, out pointed Paweł Martyniuk, as he punched for pay for the first time.

Martyniuk represented a tough enough debut test. The 32-year-old had five defeats to his name, one of which came against Conor Doherty in Belfast, but came into the clash on the back of three successive first round knockouts.

In fact each of his four wins have come via stoppage in the first round, notably not against opposition of note, but it does suggest he can punch.

He failed to cause the former Scorpion and Immaculata amateur any trouble of note, as Dlugosz secured an points win.

The light heavyweight has signed for Mariusz Krawczyński and Queensbury Poland and is expected to continue his Polish push over the coming years.

There has been faint talk of February with regard to his second pro fight.
