Andrzej Wawrzyk (born September 26, 1987) is a Polish heavyweight boxer. Wawrzyk is a former world heavyweight title challenger, and the current heavyweight champion of Poland.
He won the European junior title 2006 beating future world champion Ciocan in the semifinal.
At the World Junior Championships 2006 he lost to eventual runner-up Sardor Abdullayev 9:15 in the quarter-final.
Wawrzyk turned professional on November 18, 2006; winning his first professional bout by four round unanimous decision. From his pro debut to March 2013, Wawrzyk racked up an impressive record of 27-0, 14 KOs.
On May 17, 2013 he travelled to Russia to challenge for the WBA (regular) heavyweight title held by Alexander Povetkin, and in doing so suffered his first professional loss by third round TKO. In 2014, Wawrzyk scored two notable wins over former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Danny Williams by first round TKO, and former IBF world heavyweight champion Francois Botha by fifth round TKO. In September 2016, he defeated former world heavyweight title challenger Albert Sosnowski by sixth round TKO.
His next professional contest was scheduled for February 2017 against reigning and undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in Birmingham, Alabama. But Wilder was forced to find a new opponent for the next defence of his WBC heavyweight title after Wawrzyk failed a drug test (Stanozolol).
