Artur Szpilka Suffers Another Injury, Tears Ligaments

By Luke Furman

Polish heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9KOs) has suffered another injury which is likely going to keep him on the shelf until at least November.

On June 30th in Lodz, Szpilka's jaw was broken during his ten round decision victory over veteran Jameel McCline.

Now the 23-year-old boxer has sustained a leg injury after walking down a flight of stairs. He tore ligaments around his ankle. The boxer will wear a cast for the next few weeks.

Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come. Szpilka is a decent, exciting young heavyweight who can be in the mix in the post Klitschko days.

Maybe he is related to that guy Martinez knocked out, Sergie Drinksomeink.
