Polish heavyweight Krzysztof Zimnoch (18-1, 12KOs) is getting ready for a scheduled fight with dangerous Mike Mollo (20-5-1, 12KOs) on February 20th at Arena Hall in Legionowo, Poland.
Mollo has been inactive since losing back to back fights, by knockout, to Artur Szpilka in 2013. Both fights were very exciting with both fighters hitting the floor in both bouts.
Zimnoch himself returned last October after a two-year layoff and stopped journeyman Gbenga Oluonkun in two rounds.
A few years ago Zimnoch and Szpilka were being position to face each other on the Andrew Golota-Przemyslaw Saleta undercard. The two fighters actually brawled at the press conference but the fight itself never came together after Szpilka injured his hand against Mollo and was unable to go forward with the fight. Fans in Poland are still very interested in seeing the two fighters battle each other in the ring.
This coming Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Szpilka will challenger Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight championship.
