Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

The United States Embassy in Poland has granted heavyweight sensation Artur "The Pin" Szpilka (16-0, 12 KOs) the proper visa to enter the United States, and he will be landing in Chicago this evening.

Szpilka had been denied entry on his first attempt to enter the country for his 10-round showdown against Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KOs) on January 25 in New York at Madison Square Garden Arena

Promoters Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Productions and Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing are both breathing a sigh of relief, now that fight will proceed as scheduled.

The undefeated pair will both be making their HBO debuts in a televised doubleheader, headlined by "Mikey" Garcia's first defense of his WBO Super Featherweight Championship.

Philadelphia's Jennings is currently ranked #5 in the WBA and #4 in both the WBC and IBF. The wildly popular Szpilka, of Warsaw, Poland, is currently rated WBA and WBC #14.

[QUOTE=joe strong]he will lose a couple days training but artur has probably done that route more then once in his career which should help some. if he had to do all that flying any closer to the fight then i'd be worried that HBO would replace the HW fight on the card. win or lose both are getti...
