One-time WBC title challenger Artur Szpilka has wild walkout at KSW 94, then gets iced in 14 seconds

Artur Szpilka made a great first impression this weekend, but froze when it came to the actual fight.

Saturday evening, Szpilka faced Arkadiusz Wrzosek in the co-main event of KSW 94 in Gdańsk, Poland. Szpilka is a former professional boxer who once challenged Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title, and as such, the man has a history of showmanship in his walkouts. For instance, in 2023 he came to the KSW cage in a car for his bout with Mariusz Pudzianowski. But on Saturday, Szpilka outdid himself, arriving to the arena in a Mr. Freeze-esque cryochamber.

Unfortunately for Szpilka, that cool walkout didn’t translate to in-cage success, as the 35-year-old fighter ended up getting iced in just 14 seconds. Szpilka charged across the cage early and Wrzosek simply dumped him forward to the mat, following up with a hail of punches for the quick finish.

Check out the highlight below.
