Agreed. Already bought tickets actually. Fonfara and Szpilka have drawn some impressive and rowdy crowds at the UIC Pavilion due the large Polish population in Chicago.

The Artur Szpilka vs. Mike Mollo fight in January was probably the most exciting live event I've attended all year (eager to see the rematch).

But it's going to be damn cool to be at the Cell to watch this. This might be a future venue for boxing if it draws well (as has already happened with the UIC Pavilion).
I loved the game. I'd have played for free and worked for food. It was the game, the parks, the smells, the sounds. Have you ever held a bat or a baseball to your face? The varnish, the leather. And it was the crowd, the excitement of them rising as one when the ball was hit deep. It makes me tingle all over like a kid on his way to his first double-header, just to talk about it. - Shoeless Joe Jackson
