Spoiler Mike Mollo Kayos 18-0 Zimnoch in First Round and Exposes Him
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
Legonowo, Poland (February 21st, 2016)– The last time Mike Mollo won a fight was March 2010, when he decisioned Billy Zumbrun in Chicago, Illinois. Having won one of six bouts since January 2008, and having lost twice to Artur Szpilka in 2013, Mollo’s heavyweight aspirations were done. After stopping Kevin McBride ten years ago, Mollo never regained career momentum at 21-5-1 with three kayos.
Two and a half years after his last ring appearance, Mollo mysteriously reappeared yesterday in Europe on February 20, 2016, in a Republic of Poland International Heavyweight title against 18-0-1 Polish fighter Krzysztof Zimnoch in Legonowo, Poland.
Mollo, a fast starter, got immediately inside and began throwing and landing power shots. Mollo landed a right hand bomb which put Zimnoch down. Zimnoch got up, but a second Mollo right hand bomb on the inside when grappling for position but Zimnoch down and out for good at 2:41 of the first round. Zimnoch, on his back, made it to one knee, but got counted out.
At age 36, Mollo may be able to get a few more big fights if he wants them. Zimnoch was a pretender whom Mollo exposed. The next big step up fights, if Mollo takes them, will likely not be as easy at this one.
Result: Mike Mollo KO 1 Krzysztof Zimnoch (2:41)
