Szpilka's Injured Hand Prevents Zimnoch Showdown

By Luke Furman

Heavyweights Artur Szpilka (13-0, 10 KOs) and Krzysztof Zimnoch (13-0-1, 10 KOs) will not collide as many had expected on February 23rd in Poland as part of the Golota-Saleta undercard. Szpilka fought two weeks ago in Chicago and he went to war with Mike Mollo, but he injured his left hand. Szpilka vs. Zimnoch was gaining steam after the two of them had a scuffle at the press conference to announce Golota-Saleta. Szpilak will likely return on April 20th. Zimnoch will probably fight late replacement Damian Trzcińskim (4-2, 2 KOs).
