He showed a good fight against Adamek and knocked him down, this greedy, drunken hit and runner ..
He would prepare himself against Szpila and go into the ring in his best shape since years.
Let's get it straight: Szpilka criticized Adamek for selecting Walker before the fight, based on his sparring with him, then praised Walker for his performance against Adamek.
Facing Walker would be a good barometer of where Szpilka is in his development, especially defensively. If he can impress and not get into trouble like Adamek, he would demonstrate that the defensive lapses during the Mollo fight were a fluke or that he has learned and improved. He can also use Walker to get more exposure in the US. This could be a very solid return for him on ESPN, after the last exciting fight and maybe this time they can put him on regular tv. Its a good fight for him imho and as with all good fights, there is a significant risk.
