Facing a tough test on national television, 23-year-old Patryk Szymanski stepped in against veteran Wilky Campfort, who challenged for a 154-pound world title in his previous bout.
Using his height advantage and sharp jab, the Polish up-and-comer controlled the early rounds against Campfort, building an early lead.
Campfort shook off the cobwebs a bit in the 5th round, as he began to get through Szymanski's guard. As the action balanced out, a war of words ensued between the two at the end of several rounds during the fight's second half.
Szymanksi was able to fight through fatigue and re-establish control of the fight in the closing rounds, and didn't draw any favor from the fans with a bit of showboating in the fight's closing seconds.
But he had done enough to earn a Unanimous Decision victory (98-92, 99-91 x2).
Szymanski improved to 16-0 (9 KO), and dropped Campfort to 21-3 (12 KO) in the process.
