Artur Szpilka Back on 4/20, Tough Getting an Opponent

By Luke Furman

Polish heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka (13-0, 10 KOs) will return on April 20th in Rzeszow, Poland. Last month the boxer was involved in a very exciting encounter in Chicago, where he was dropped two times before coming back in the sixth round to score a knockout over Mike Mollo. The fight was televised by ESPN's Friday Night Fights.

Szpilka is having some trouble finding an opponent for the April date. He says former champion Hasim Rahman, and contender Tor Hamer, have turned down offers. The Polish boxer also says former champ Sergei Liakhovich initially agreed to take the fight but then took a pass after noting that he wouldn't have enough time to get ready by the date.
