Adamek-McBride Venue Decision Coming Down Soon

Tomorrow a decision will come down with respect to the venue, and location, of Tomasz Adamek's next fight, scheduled to take place against the 6'6 Kevin McBride (35-8-1, 29 KOs). BoxingScene.com/Bokser.org was advised that SMG Poland asked for additional time, until Friday February 4, to put something together for holding the event in Katowice. Tomasz Adamek (43-1, 28 KOs), together with his promoters, agreed to such a solution.

Adamek's camp will soon know all the details of the offer, and decide whether to fight McBride in Katowice, or whether to have it in Newark. The date for the fight, which was established for April 16, will not change.

McBride's famous win, by technical knockout in the sixth round, came against Mike Tyson in 2005. This was the last fight in the career of a famous American. In 2007, the Irishman crossed gloves with Andrew Golota, who stopped the Irishman in six rounds. The 37-year-old tlast fought in October of last year. He lost to Matt Skelton in the semi-finals of the Prizefighter tournament.

The fight against McBride is only a tune-up stop on the way to the most important and most difficult test of Adamek's career, which is going to take place in the month of September against the heavyweight champion of the world organization IBO, IBF and WBO - Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs).

If the decision was to have it in Kevin's Backyard, with his dad as the Ref, it would still end in a KO in Adamek's favor. The guy's been stopped twice since the Tyson fight (once to Golota) and then…

[QUOTE=toysale;10052421]I don't see any point in Adamek fighting him, he's massively overweight and so slow (assuming he's in similar condition to the prizefighter). Pointless fight, even for a keep busy fight.[/QUOTE] The point is that he is a name due…

I don't see any point in Adamek fighting him, he's massively overweight and so slow (assuming he's in similar condition to the prizefighter). Pointless fight, even for a keep busy fight.
