Krzysztof Glowacki won the WBO cruiserweight title from long reigning champion Marco Huck last August in one of the most dramatic fights of 2015.

Glowacki (25-0, 16 knockouts) had to pick himself off the canvas in the sixth round and was behind on the scorecards before rallying to knock Huck out in the penultimate round.

Since then the teak tough Polish fighter has enjoyed his new status.

“I’m still [a] quite man, always prefer to do more than talk about it,” Glowacki told through his promoter Andrew Wasilewski “Of course I have better financial situation and I’m much more recognizable.”

However, so far he’s been unable to capitalize on his title win and defend his title due to left elbow and wrist injuries that needed operations.

Thankfully, all is well now: “I had surgery, now I’m perfect, fit and ready to box!”

He has spent the time since the injury in rehab and recently returned to full training and says he asks his promoter regularly when he can fight next.

“I ask my promoters at least one time per week.” the 29-year-old southpaw said eagerly.

Glowacki is mandated to face 2012 Olympic gold medalist Oleksandr Usyk but it is rumored he may first face former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham in April.

Wasilewski said when asked what the plans were for Glowacki, “At least two fights, he really wants to fight.”
