Artur Szpilka nickname "Szpila" "The Pin" (born 12 April 1989 in Wieliczka) is a Polish professional southpaw boxer in Heavyweight division. He fought for Górnik Wieliczka.

He ended up in boxing only by pure coincident – he was the fan of Wisła Kraków.

Szpilka was charged for his role in a brawl between soccer hooligans supporting his team Wisla Krakow and bitter rivals Cracovia and sentenced to 18 months in jail. Szpilka stated: "During that time, I realized just what I had lost and began to appreciate boxing more. I kept fit by doing pull-ups, pushups and lifting weights in prison, which helped me build up my upper body strength and punching power. Now I'm hungrier than ever before."
