Polish heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9 KOs) is possibly out until December. Last night in Lodz, Szpilka's jaw was broken in two places during his ten round unanimous decision win over tough veteran Jameel McCline (43-12-3, 24 KOs). As reported earlier, Szpilka believes his jaw was broken in the sixth round. The boxer indicates that he will undergo surgery in the coming days.

[QUOTE=Freedom.]Szpilka is not a quitter. :fing02: Despite the pain of a broken jaw, he went the whole 10 rounds. In fact, he finished strong in the last round.[/QUOTE] No doubt, but he really doesn't look like a heavyweight either. I'm 6'2 and weigh about 178. Can Szpilka, at 6'4, really not...
