Dominic Breazeale Hunting Adam Kownacki!
Well, it looks like two-time heavyweight world title challenger Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (20-2, 18 KO’s) has rekindled his flair for battle and is looking for work.
Via social media, Trouble kicked a bit of cyber sand on Adam “Babyface” Kownacki’s (20-0, 15 KO’s) shoes after he got wind that the Polish contender would be facing former top contender Robert Helenius in March instead of entertaining a fight with him.
In response, he created a post, tagged Kownacki and attached to a picture of Howard the Duck. The not-so-subtle reference certainly implies that Breazeale feels he is being avoided.
Kownacki is a swiftly rising and rather popular, heavyweight prospect. Obviously, Breazeale wants to welcome the Polish fighter to the next tier of competition.
A TROUBLED PAST
It’s actually been almost a solid year since Breazeale graced the ring. When he was last in the squared-circle on May 18, 2019, he was all but liquefied by WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KO’s).
Following an acutely bitter build-up that literally involved their families, the Bomber flattened Trouble in jaw-dropping fashion in the very first round.
The knockout was especially impressive because, if nothing else, Breazeale has proven that he is a game and durable fighter. The only two losses on his ledger come to the aforementioned and unified world heavyweight champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21 KO’s). Although both defeats came by way of knockout, there is no great shame in losing to a top three fighter.
A NEW DAY
Apparently, Breazeale has put his Wilder demons to bed and is ready to resume collecting a check for punching folks in the face. Clearly, the next nose he wants to wallop belongs to Kownacki.
Honestly, this is a solid match-up. Even though the two-time title challenger has fought two of the top guys in the division and had his moments with Joshua, Babyface is not without his experience.
Along with his latest win over Cristobal “The Nightmare” Arreola, Kownacki has fought Gerald Washington, Charles Martin and Artur Spilka. Both like to come forward and neither are shy about taking a punch.
