Fonfara, Szpilka win by KO on Friday Night Fights

Fans at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago were treated to three exciting boxing matches tonight in the latest installment of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. In the main event, light heavyweight Andrzej Fonfara (24-2, 14 KOs) defeated Gabriel Campillo (22-5-1, 9 KOs). Campillo was hurt in Round 8 and Fonfara finished him off by KO in Round 9. Fonfara has now won 11 of his last 12 fights by stoppage.

In undercard action, junior welterweight Adrian Granados (12-2, 8 KOs) beat previously unbeaten prospect Mark Salser (15-1, 9 KOs). Granados was winning the fight through Round 3 when he had Salser in the corner and then got rocked with a right hand, knocking him down. After being knocked down twice, Granados TKO’d Salser in the sixth round in dramatic fashion.

Also on the undercard, heavyweights Szpilka and Mollo met in a rematch of their exciting February meeting. Szpilka TKO’d Mollo with a huge left hook that landed right on the button in Round 5. Szpilka won their first fight by KO in Round 6. In Round 3, Mollo was in trouble on wobbly legs, when he floored Spzilka with a right hand.

The card was the first major outdoor boxing event in a Chicago ballpark since Sonny Liston KO’d Floyd Patterson in the first round in 1962.
