Former WBC heavyweight title challenger Artur Szpilka (0-0) enters MMA for the very first time at KSW 71 this Saturday in Torun, Poland.
The 33-year-old has a boxing record of 24-9 with 16 knockouts and challenges Deontay Wilder for the world heavyweight title in 2016. Over the course of his career he defeated the likes of Tomasz Adamek, Mike Mollo, and Mariusz Wach.
