Polish boxer Kamil Łaszczyk (12-0, 6 KO) concluded a fantastic amateur career in which he won 110 bouts against only 7 losses by winning his sixth National Amateur championship. Then he made the leap which would fulfill his lifelong dream by coming to America as part of the Global Boxing Foundation to turn professional.

With new trainer Aroz “Terrific” Gist in his corner, Łaszczyk won his pro debut against Emil Brooks on March 4th in Queens, New York by second round knockout. Łaszczyk used his punishing body attack to break his opponent down. Then, just two weeks later, Łaszczyk punctuated his two round annihilation of Luquan Lewis by knocking him out cold with an overhand right in Long Island.

Łaszczyk continued his winning way by scoring another knockout at The Asylum Arena in Philadelphia, PA on April 1st. He stopped Puerto Rican Javier Ramos in the first round of their super featherweight bout.

Kamil's promoter, Mariusz Kolodziej realized the potential the young fighter had and decided to put him in the hands of Tommy Brooks, a well known boxing trainer, who worked with many successful fighters such as Mike Tyson and the Klitschko brothers.

On October 1st 2011 Kamil was forced to go the distance for the first time in his pro career, as he pulled out a unanimous decision victory over Terrance Roy at the Fitzgerald's Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. He moved his record to 4-0 (3 KO), scoring two knockdowns in the four-round contest to win by scores of 40-34.

In November Kamil appeared in one of the earlier bouts of "November Reign" at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The super featherweight prospect needed just 36 seconds to get rid of his opponent, Chris Montoya Jr.  Łaszczyk scored two quick knockdowns of Montoya (2-5, 1 KO), before the referee called a halt to the bout.

Kamil ended 2011 year winning his first bout in Poland. He scored 1-round knockout over Hungarian fighter Istvan Paszti (0-2, 0 KO) at Hilton Boxing Night in Warsaw.

On January 28th 2012 Kamil won the Mid-South featherweight belt during the main event in Tunica, Mississippi, winning 60-54 on the scorecards after a hard battle in every round against seasoned Texas champion Samuel Sanchez (5-4, 1 KO).

Only two months later, Laszczyk proved his skills to boxing fans as he won an eight round unanimous decision over Tevin Farmer (4-3-1, 1 KO) in a clash for the vacant WBO Youth belt. 

On June 1st  2012, in the second bout in his native country, Laszczyk scored another unanimous decision over Nikuta Lukin.

The Polish Beast countinued his success, as he overpowered the 37-year-old veteran Ghenadie Delisandru (18-15-1, 6KO) winning the WBC Baltic Silver Featherweight title. The bout was stopped after three rounds; Kamil's opponent was unable to continue the fight due to severe pain in the right shoulder. 

On November 17th, Laszczyk defeated  Antonio Cossu (12-0-1, 6KO), and added the vacant WBO Inter-Continental belt to his collection.

It’s safe to say that the hard-working Łaszczyk’s future is looking bright.

Kamil started his career at the age of 13. He took his first steps in the boxing ring in Gwardia Wroclaw, Poland, under the watchful eyes of his trainers – Mariusz Cieslak and Grzegorz Strugala – who introduced him to the secrets of “fencing with fists”.

Łaszczyk trained briefly with Polish super middleweight champion Piotr Wilczewski before coming to America. Now at Global Boxing Gym in North Bergen, Łaszczyk is sparring with the best talent in the region and making vast improvements with each fight.
