Hala Luczniczka, ul. Toruńska 59, Bydgoszcz, Poland - Top Polish heavyweight contender Artur Szpilka (15-0, 11 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Brian Minto (37-6, 24 KOs). Unlike his war with Mike Mollo earlier this year, Szpilka used his legs to box smart and outwork the very aggressive Minto. In the final minute of the round, Szpilka appeared to score a knockdown but the referee waved it off. The scores were 100-90, 98-93 and 98-92. Szpilka will now moved forward to another war with Mollo on August 16 at the U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.
