Coming into the eleventh round Huck was ahead on the scorecards, Głowacki knocked down Huck with a left-right combination. As the referee allowed the bout to continue, Głowacki landing two huge right hands and dropped Huck down against the ropes, the referee come in and waved off the bout. Glowacki twice dropped Marco Huck in a knockout that foiled Huck’s attempt at a record 14th defense in the 200-pound division at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.[2] Like Huck, it was Glowacki's first fight outside of Europe.[3] Many consider this as the 2015 fight of the year.
