Early Life and Career Beginnings

World Title Triumph: Grzegorz Proksa becomes WBC Middleweight Champion

After five professional fights only, Grzegorz Proksa managed to secure his first world title fight against Kenneth Van Eesvelde for the WBC Middleweight Title. Van Eesvelde was already an experienced fighter with 28 professional fights, but Proksa's form was impeccable.

The fight took place on March 3rd, 2006, and saw the emergence of a new boxing superstar. Proksa outclassed Van Eesvelde and eventually won the fight via seventh-round TKO, thus becoming the middleweight champion of the world.

Commenting on his win, Proksa said, "Winning the world title was a dream come true. It was something I had been working on ever since I started boxing, and to have achieved it at such a young age was truly incredible for me."

The first defeat of his professional career came on March 17th, 2012, against Kerry Hope. Hope managed to halt Proksa's 26-fight win streak by winning via 12 round majority decision. Hope was a seasoned fighter, and even though Proksa put up a good fight, he ultimately could not maintain his form throughout the fight.

Proksa's second defeat came in a title fight against Gennady Golovkin. Golovkin was by far the toughest opponent Proksa had to face in his career. Golovkin managed to take Proksa down in the fifth round, and the referee stopped the fight after witnessing that Proksa was not in the position to continue.
