Szpilka, Zimnoch Facing Penalties Over Confrontation

By Luke Furman

Polish heavyweight prospects Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9 KOs) and Krzysztof Zimnoch (13-0-1, 10 KOs) are facing potential penalties from the Polish Association of Boxing. At Monday's press conference to promote the scheduled fight between Andrew Golota and Przemyslaw Saleta, the two prospects were involved in an ugly tussle.

Golota-Saleta takes place on February 23rd in Gdansk. Szpilka and Zimnoch are set to face each other on the undercard. But if both boxers get suspended, that match might be called off. They also face potential fines.

When the two fighters came face to face at the presser, a verbal confrontation took place. Szpilka headbutted Zimnoch and then both boxers started swinging their hands and wrestling around. The two camps rushed in to break things up.

Their little beef at the press conference got a whole lot more people interested in the match. No way it's cancelled for that tame of a confrontation.

there is potential for the main event to be terrible so by making a few fireworks at the press conference just boosted interest...suspension won't cancel the fight, mollo could though...
