SZPILKA VISA PROBLEMS PLACE HBO BOUT IN JEOPARDY


Press Release: Bryant Jennings and his promotional team are all hoping heavyweight Artur Szpilka can resolve his visa problems in the wake of reports that the Polish boxer was sent back to Poland after being by the Department of Homeland Security at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.  Szpilka was traveling to the United States to face Jennings on January 25th, with HBO scheduled to broadcast.  “Team Jennings along with myself and Antonio Leonard are well aware of the visa problems Szpilka is having at the moment,” said Jennings’ co-promoter Gary Shaw. “We are monitoring the situation very closely with Warriors Boxing Promoter Leon Margules and hope this problem can get resolved very fast… it would be disappointing if they are not able to fight.  We are working endlessly to get Artur’s proper documents approved so they can meet January 25th on HBO.”
