Adamek Says HBO is Very Interested in Arreola Rematch

By Luke Furman

Former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KOs) is still planning out his comeback. The Polish boxer was last seen in October, getting stopped in the tenth round by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Adamek won a twelve round majority decision over Chris Arreola (34-2, 29KOs) in April of 2010.

Adamek states that HBO is very interested in televising a rematch with Arreola, who returns on February 18th against Eric Molina in Corpus Christi, Texas. The Polish star is interested in a rematch, maybe in the summer, but wants to have a quick tuneup before a more serious fight is considered. 

"HBO really wants our rematch. I have nothing against doing that. In the summer, I can fight with Arreola, because prior to that I plan to take a fight with an easier opponent," Adamek told fakt.

They're better off fighting each other than getting beat down against a Klit.
