By Luke Furman

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).

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.

Damian Trzcinski (2-1, 1KO) stopped Damian Sarzala (0-1), who was making his pro debut, in the third round of their heavyweight match.

Krzysztof Kopytek (6-0, 2KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Dzianis Makar (4-15-1, 3KOs) in a junior middleweight scrap. The scores were 39-37, 39-38, 39-38.

Spilka not progressing, not a good sign. He's too busy always balling that Polish GF of his he poses with on FB. He's too cunt-struck, that boy.

Minto is doing pretty good. Not winning but giving a game effort.

Minto getting hit a lot. But he's still coming forward, and landing a few despite his shorter reach.
