Team Klitschko Confirm Tomasz Adamek Fight; Details

By Rick Reeno

Bernd Boente, manager of heavyweight champions Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, has confirmed to that serious negotiations are indeed taking place to fight Tomasz Adamek in September. Contrary to published reports, there is nothing set in stone that Wladimir will be the actual brother to fight Adamek. The fight could very well end up with Vitali and Adamek, says Boente. Adamek is open to facing either brother.

"That's the difference between Tomasz Adamek and David Haye. Adamek said that he is ready to fight either brother, where Haye said that he would not fight Vitali and would only fight Wladimir," Boente told

Wladimir is scheduled to defend his WBO/IBO/IBF titles against Dereck Chisora on April 30. Adamek is going to return on April 16, and Vitali Klitschko defends his WBC belt against Odlanier Solis in March. The schedules of both brothers will be crucial in the finalization of which of them enters the Adamek fight.

Both sides are seriously exploring the idea of staging the fight at a new soccer stadium in Poland

"The important thing is, is that everyone is willing to do this fight. You won't believe how many phone calls that I've already got from Polish journalists. It's unbelievable. It would also be the grand opening of that stadium, which is new. All of these stadiums are being built for the European championships next year. We have to see the schedules. Wladimir has Chisora in April and Vitali will have Solis in March and then he may want to fight again in June or early July. If Wladimir beats Chisora, he will probably fight in September, but first is the Chisora fight and then we'll talk about what's next," Boente said.

If Wladimir is the brother who decides to enter against Adamek, where does that leave a potential fight with WBA heavyweight champion David Haye on July 2? Based on the recent comments of Haye's manager, Adam Booth, who said the "Klitschko fight is a dead situation" - Boente is not going to waste his time.

I am not really up with the play re: Haye/Klitschko. There have been so many articles in the last few days, and I have missed at least a couple of them. Is the following summary from "nordic" and "The Surgeon"…

[QUOTE=Dave Rado;9926959]They [B]could [/B]sign a contract now, despite the Chisora fight. It's happened many times before. Before Judah fought Boldomir in a tune-up, Floyd and Judah had already signed a contract to fight each other after Judah's tune-up. Before De…

[QUOTE=PrinceNaz88;9926858]Fighting once a month at the start of your career is fairly common. You seriously think Wlad would fight Chisora April 30th, Haye July 2nd and Adamek in September?? Three fights in 4-5 months. Never going to happen![/QUOTE] The Adamek…
