originally scheduled to fight Selim Sarialioglu,
but when he pulled out with an injury on short
notice, Turkey´s Arifogullari, already in
training for a title fight at Super
Middleweight, stepped in to save the day.
the late substitute didn't acquit himself very
well. After a slow first round, Arifogullari was
counted over in round two when Pawlak unloaded a
series of body-shots and only the ropes held him
up, and in the third he was floored again by a
left hook to the body.
He beat the
count, but then went on to push Pawlak out of
the ring. While he also fell out of the ring
himself, referee Kazim Kurnaz decided it
was an intentional foul and that Arifogullari
should be disqualified, consequently declaring
Pawlak the winner.
