Adamek Says Next Fight Will Not Happen in Poland

By BoxingBet.pl

Former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) has revealed that his next fight probably will be staged in the United States. Recently the New Jersey-based fighter withdrew from a final IBF heavyweight eliminator bout with Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs) explaining that he has an opportunity to secure a much more profitable fight in his domestic Poland. However, it seems that the plans misfired.

"My next fight will likely take place in the United States. The name of my opponent and the location of the bout should know in the coming days,” Adamek said to Polish Press Agency.

Despite recent rumors, Adamek definitely ruled out a possibility of securing a rematch against his countryman, 45-year old Andrew Golota (41-9-1, 33 KOs), who lost by knockout to the other Pole, Przemyslaw Saleta (44-7, 22 KOs) last month.

“Each boxer fights until he is fit enough. In my opinion Golota should have retired a few years ago. If you don’t have speed and your footwork doesn’t work, you have to leave this sport,” Adamek added.

I don't get why Adamek avoided Pulev - I thought Adamek was the definition of a warrior. He's let his fans down on this one :nonono:

There was a rumor on Polish websites that it would be Tony Grano, but Adamek has denied it.
