Szpilka won and his style is entertaining for public. That is what counts for the moment, since I do not expect him to fight more dangerous opponents in about 5 next fights. So he is safe for a year or two.

However, I hoped he will present some kind of defence, especially after the accident with Saulsberry. His guard was still wide open, and when he was coming forward and missing right hook it was just asking for trouble - any opponent with some speed and skills would've countered him easily and put him down even with relatively weak punch.
Szpilka said he was extremely disappointed with his showing, especially his accuracy (says only one punch landed clean in the spot he wanted) and said he forced his punches to much instead of letting it come naturally.
