Afolabi vs Janik: High Stakes on Klitschko-Adamek

By Ruslan Chikov

A very important cruiserweight battle is going to take place on the Vitali Klitschko-Tomasz Adamak undercard. Veteran Ola Afolabi (17-2-3, 8KOs) will face once-beaten Polish contender Lukasz Janik (22-1, 13KOs). The winner could very well land a title shot in his next outing. Janik's only loss, a fifth round knockout to another Polish cruiser Mateusz Masternak (23-0, 17KOs), took place in October of 2009. He won seven in a row since the loss. Masternak, a rising star at the weight, is also going to appear on the undercard, with no opponent finalized at the present. Afolabi has won three since a 2009 decision loss to WBO champion Marco Huck. The big event happens on September 10 at Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw, Poland.

[QUOTE=DOMINATION;10950429]Adamek ruined Banks and took his soul. [/QUOTE] Yeah, but he's fought on 5 Klitschko under cards since then. The question is why? The Walker KO was great, but dude couldn't even get by Jason…

[QUOTE=paulf;10950350]Have the Klitschkos finally cut the umbilical cord on Johnathan Banks and replaced him with Afolabi?? :rofl:[/QUOTE] Adamek ruined Banks and took his soul.
