“Merciless” Mike Mollo (20-4, 12 KO) lost to Artur Szpilka (13-0, 10 KO) Friday night in Chicago, but he won all the fans’ hearts in a great, bloody battle with the Polish heavyweight prospect. Mollo lost by KO in sixth round but not before twice putting his 23-year-old rival on the canvas. Both fighters delivered on all their promises leading up to the fight, and Mollo, talking in the UIC Pavilion locker room minutes after the fight, does not hide his emotions.
Mollo’s trainer Danell “Doc” Nicholson also weighed in on the epic fight.
