Photos: Szpilka vs. Mollo II, Fonfara-Campillo Presser

A press conference was held at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, home of the Chicago White Sox, to discuss "The Big Fight 2", taking place on Friday, August 16, 2013.

"The Promoters" and many of the principle fighters were on hand to discuss the history-making ESPN Friday Night Fights-televised night of world-class boxing, headlined by the highly anticipated return of Chicago's Polish Prince, IBO Light Heavyweight World Champion Andrzej Fonfara, battling former world champion Gabriel "EL Chico Guapo" Campillo of Madrid, Spain in a scheduled twelve rounder.

Also featured will be the "Can't Miss" heavyweight rematch of Artur 'The Pin" Szpilka of Wieliczka, Poland and Chicago's "Merciless" Mike Mollo, scheduled for ten rounds.

Anticipation continues to build for this incredible event, the first of its kind in the Windy City in decades and the large contingent of media on hand were a strong indication of its impending impact on Chicago boxing.

Both bouts will be telecast LIVE on the season-ending episode of ESPN's Friday Night Fights.  "The Big Fight 2" is presented by "The Promoters": Round 3 Productions, 8 Count Productions and Warriors Boxing.
