Grabowski is an undefeated Polish fighter making an US debut.

He easily won a unanimous decision with a score of 30-27 on all of the judges’ card. Konrad is a former NCAA heavyweight wrestler, who also won a 30-27 score from the judges after defeating Rogent Lloret. Due to lack of action, both Grabowski and Konrad still has a long way to run before becoming the darling of the crowd.
