KRZYSZTOF GLOWACKI will defend his WBO world cruiserweight title against knockout artist Oleksandr Usyk in Gdansk, Poland on September 17.

Usyk will be Glowacki’s first mandatory defence since he stunned Marco Huck last August, knocking the long reigning champion out in the 11th round.

He followed up that win with a points victory over former titlist Steve Cunningham in April, while Usyk is coming off a seventh round stoppage of Pedro Rodriguez in December.
