Bryant Jennings vs Artur Szpilka - 01/25/2014

Yeah, that's JANUARY! you damn brits!

Undefeated heavies, Jennings and Szpilka, will meet at the Madison Square Garden in January.

I dig Jennings. I rank him higher than the other American heavyweight prospects.
Szpilka is a fun guy to watch, moves pretty well for looking at clumsy as he does. Has some decent power but just doesn't seem like a natural heavyweight.

Should be a good fight. I'd expect Jennings to KO him mid to late.



Bryant Jennings:





Szpilka:

Should be a cracker.
Jennings boxes him up, and stops him.

I haven't been that impressed with Jennings but the only reason Spilka is here is because of a good fight with another fighter. Should be another win no one cares about in the HW division.

That's not like you at all, Seano.

Complaining?
What happened to the bright-eyed and buxom Seano?

I just think NBC puts on some pretty shitty cards. Its like they still think fans only like HW fights. Jennings doesn't look special to me.

Don't think much of Spzilka tbh, Jennings isn't the next great thing but he should win this with superior boxing and by just being better, could probably even stop Spzilka if he goes about it right.

Spzilka hits hard but if Mike Mollo could drop him and give him trouble in both fights, then Jennings should win convincingly. He is young though so there's a chance that he'll get a lot better. I saying somebody so young is never gonna be good, there's a possibility he comes in a way better fighter than we saw against Mollo, but I doubt it atm.

Like the fight though from a stylistic pov. Neither guy's anything special but what do you expect from hw's on nbc?

Huh?
Didn't you see his left bicep?
I suggest you look at that picture again.

How come Spilka spelled his name wrong on his trunks?
