British prospect Jack Massey has been invited to spar former WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Krzysztof Glowacki.

The Buxton-born star is a former ABA finalist, losing to Olympian Joshua Buatsi in 2011 before winning the competition two years later.

Unbeaten in all 12 of his professional outings and the current WBC Youth title holder, Massey isn’t letting himself get carried away with the opportunity.

He said:

“It’s going to be a great experience for me. What better way to prepare for my next fight. I’ll be flying out to Poland on the 4th and will be spending three weeks there. Having lost his world title to Oleksandr Usyk – who many regards as the best cruiser – you couldn’t ask for anything better.”

He added:

“He obviously lost his title to one of the best cruisers in the world Oleksandr Usyk, it’s going be great to pit myself against one of the best.”

Massey currently holds a professional record with a 50% knockout ratio (12-0-6KO) and finds himself improving fight to fight in a now once again exciting time for the cruiserweight division.

Traditionally a division that’s gone under the radar, it now finds itself rightly in the limelight once again due to the quality of talent it continues to produce and new tournaments such as the World Boxing Super Series which continue to highlight the weight class.
