By Luke Furman

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.
