Paul Slowinski and Peter Graham met for the third time over the weekend after trading wins over the past few years only for Paul Slowinski to score a third round knockout and secure the ISKA World Heavyweight Championship. Reports from fans in Australia say that Slowinski went on a tear in the third round, dropping Graham a total of three times; the first time he dropped Graham with leg kicks, while the second and third were due to body blows and caused the fight to be stopped.
The interesting note from those in attendance is that "The Sting" Slowinski is apparently in the best shape of his career now. One person even told LiverKick.com that Slowinski had an "Ubereem-like transformation." That is, as always, a big deal for a guy like Slowinski, who at 6'3" and 240 lbs (190cm, 110kg) most of the time, adding some more muscle mass and weight could only help him compete against Super Heavyweights at a higher level.
Slowinski has always been a fighter who has just been on the cusp of greatness but has been held back by losses to more aggressive fighters like Ben Edwards, Gokhan Saki and Melvin Manhoef, as well as defensive fighters like Remy Bonjasky and Semmy Schilt. Slowinski is on a 5-fight winning streak now and is looking to fight Errol Zimmerman in the fall. We are still on the lookout for photos or videos from the event, but nothing yet.
