Default Re: Anyone know about Polish heavy Artur Szpilka?

not the Poles, just the minority unfortunately they are the most loud and aggressive arguing about it
most people in Poland see nothing special in Szpilka at this point, of course he is probably the best except Adamek at heavyweight division in Poland but thats all, we almost all see its far to early to say something for sure

He is a decent prospect that may become a very good HW

He is progressing along very well at this stage of his career, but he is no elite talent
thats exactly how I and most of polish fans see it, its just happened that most of polish guys on this forum are often being far from dispassionate when they deal with something that apply to Poland, and they also unnecessarily go into personal/national exchanges, sometimes I really feel like the misunderstanding come from lack of english language in some cases, its not only our national attribute to be fair

I see nothing special in him, he looked impressive against bums, the first time he fought decent opponent he looked scared and nothing special, although he doesn't looked as bad as some here say

finally he only had less then 25 rounds in his entire career, mccline over 300 so his experience was much bigger

I guess these polish guys just feel that Artur and other polish fighters are attacked more then they deserve, it seemed that nobody is being attacked like that, for example Wilder or Povietkin who has been avoiding Wlad like for 4years now?
