Eagle Q&A: Undefeated Greenpoint-raised boxing sensation Adam “Babyface” Kownacki
Brooklyn has raised some of the most successful boxers in the world — from the former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to the current WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. Soon, another name may join those ranks.
Greenpoint-raised Adam “Babyface” Kownacki currently holds a record of 17-0 with 14 wins by knockout. His next fight takes place this September, and should he win, he’d have a shot at a title fight.
Kownacki recently spoke to the Brooklyn Eagle about his childhood in Greenpoint and his boxing career.
