Cieślak's first title fight occurred when he was 30 years old against Ilunga Makabu for the WBC (vacant) title in January 2020, his 20th professional bout. Unfortunately, he lost this title fight via a 12-round unanimous decision. It was his first defeat in a streak of 19 consecutive wins.

He has beaten Yury Kashinsky, Taylor Mabika, Olanrewaju Durodola, Youri Kalenga, Shawn Cox, Francisco Palacios, and Art Binkowski. It is remarkable that Cieślak has never been knocked out in his career so far, and it shows his resilience and ability to withstand powerful hits from his opponents.

Cieślak's fighting style is typically aggressive, as he aims to overpower his opponents with his strength and reach. The boxer uses his long reach to maintain his distance from his opponents and to land powerful hits. He also likes to go on the offensive and look for openings to land solid hits, which has resulted in his impressive knockout record.

At the age of 33, Michał Cieślak has achieved a lot in his professional boxing career so far. He has had 24 fights, with 21 wins and 15 knockout victories, which is no small feat. Cieślak has exhibited consistency and determination in his career, and with more opportunities, he is capable of achieving greater success in the future.

Boxing fans are excited to see what the future holds for Cieślak as he continues to compete at the cruiserweight division.
