(CBS) Mike Mollo will be fighting this Friday at US Cellular Field in a rematch against heavyweight Artur “The Pin” Szpilka of Wieliczka, Poland. He joined Laurence Holmes to talk about the rematch and tells Laurence that he will be the main event come this Friday Night.

For this memorable evening the ring will be set up just behind home plate with the grandstand serving as the backdrop.
