Default Re: Anyone know about Polish heavy Artur Szpilka?

Even if he didn't realize he was past it until post Cunningham there is no excuse for waiting another 2 or 3 months until Pulev negotiations were supposed to already be taking place before backing out. He's ****ed Pulev over and held up the IBF mandatory being decided.
Szpilka would be the biggest Polish payday, but not the biggest payday, which he is gunning for. Don't know if it would make him more then a Mitchell or Banks fight on HBO, but following a successful outcome of a Mitchell / Banks fight Adamek gets closer to another big payday fight following that, while Szpilka would just be a risk and not really move him any closer to that last title fight and payout.

As far as Adamek waiting before backing out, I don't know why or his reasoning. But if that's your grudge then say it that way out right, and not suggest he will fight Sosnowski in other words accusing him of fighting lesser opposition non-stop, which is simply not true, taking into consideration how often he fights.
