Artur Szpilka Faces Jameel McCline on Kostecki-Roy Jones

By Alexey Sukachev

Artur Szpilka (11-0, 9 KOs), an up-and-coming new heavyweight star from Poland, will make yet another leap up in class in just two weeks. On June 30 Szpilka, who already defeated shop-worn but experienced veterans Gonzalo Omar Basile and Owen Beck (both via fourth-round TKOs), battles former world-title challenger Jameel “Big Time” McCline (41-11-3, 24 KOs).

McCline, 42, is just 1-1 this year (while losing a fight to the boxer with a negative record) and hasn’t won a single meaningful fight for well over three years. However, he can still possess tools and experience and he does possess size and physique to give Szpilka some hard moments – at least, in the beginning of the bout. Szpilka vs. McCline will take place on the Roy Jones Jr. vs. Dawid Kostecki undercard; the show being promoted by Andrzej Wasilewski.

Szpilka is young and has only had 11 pro fights, so McCline is an okay opponent for him. Artur will learn from fighting experienced (but faded) veterans.
