In a January 2015 fight against Deontay Wilder, his last failed attempt at a heavyweight title, Szpilka took a punch to the face and had to be carried out of the ring on a stretcher.

Talking to Danuta Isler about his return to the ring, Szpilka said he hoped to show on Saturday that his loss to Wilder was an accident and that he was ready to put on a great show for the fans.

"I waited a long time for this return. I broke my hand after the Deontay Wilder fight but now I am back and 100 percent ready for this fight," he told Radio Poland.
