On January 25 at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden,  Artur Szpilka (16-0, 12 KOs) will take part in one of the most important fights of his career, when he faces Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KOs) in an HBO televised contest. Szpilka is currently training hard, and during camp he had sparring sessions against veteran contender Kevin Johnson (29-4-1, 14 KOs).

The Polish puncher is going to be looking to start 2014 I a big way, and then he wants nothing but big fights for the remainder of the year.

"My goal for this year is Jennings, then I want [Mike] Perez or [Deontay] Wilder, thena  title - [Bermane] Stiverne or [Chris] Arreola. That's what I'm going to be looking for," Szpilka said.

MSG is the site of when Polish heavyweight Andrew Golota made a name for himself in 1996, by unexpectedly beating up Riddick Bowe for several rounds before getting disqualified. Szpika has no interested in being the next Golota. He wants to be his own man.

"I do not want to be any successor to anyone. I want to be Artur Szpilka and give the Poles a lot of excitement and show that I represent Poland with pride. I just want to go out there and do my thing and I'll do anything to knock him out," Szpilka said.

where does the Perez hype come from? He beat up Mago who never had nothing except power against low level competiton, up to that point his biggest win was UD against Travis Walker. He was getting hit quite a lot by Mago, we need to be carefull, Perez might get cought by Takam.

He'll beat Jennings but Perez and Wilder beat him. Wilder KOs him and Perez schools him with a possible stoppage. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android

@hay-b, If you don't know about Szpilka then how can you make an assessment? Perez has a low ko% and couldn't even drop a fighter who had a broken hand in the 2nd round (Magomed threw and connected more power punches in that fight as well). All Perez has is an adequate jab...Szpilka is going to e...

[QUOTE=HAY-B]I don't know anything about Szpilka but if I were him I would avoid Perez. Perez is a tough S.O.B.. He can take a hell of a punch and throw one. Plus he's a damn good boxer.
