Rebecki was stopped with just nine seconds left of the fight, but it was almost certainly for the best as he’d taken a ton of damage to his face.

“Life,” he wrote in Polish alongside a shrugging emoji and a picture of him covered him blood, bruises, and cuts after his 16-fight win streak came to a brutal end.
