Kiwior was making his pro debut after enjoying a glittering amateur career.
Damian Kiwior beat Anatoli Lyubenov on pts in a welterweight chow down that got the Wolverhampton based boxer’s pro career off to a great start.
The Polish born fighter was impressive in all of the four rounds as he unravelled the Bulgarian challenge before him.
Always on the front foot and finishing each round strongly, Kiwior delighted his followers with a confident, classy, energetic display that underlined just why he’ll be one to watch in the future.
Kiwior’s move into pro boxing from the amateurs where, whilst living in Poland, he picked up two golds, a silver and a bronze in the Polish Senior Championships – as well as being named Youth Champion in 2016, has captured the imagination; especially amongst those fight fans who now live in the Black Country but who were originally from the fighter’s native land.
Kiwior’s trainer, Paul Mann, said that he expects to see him get better.
“It was a good performance from Damian. He got the win. After having 238 amateur fights it’s sometimes very difficult to adjust to the professional side of boxing. Damian will improve with every fight and I’m confident he can do very well and achieve great honours as a professional boxer.”
If Kiwior is able to find similar success in the pros to that which he was able to achieve as an amateur, then this victory at Walsall Town Hall will surely mark the beginning of a beautiful new chapter in what has already been, up until now, an eye-catching, intriguing and more than readable boxing story.
