Tomasz Adamek-Tony Grano Set For August 3rd Card

Tomasz Adamek's opponent for the August 3, NBC Sports Network Fight Night card has been confirmed. Adamek, 48-2, 29 KO's, will take on Tony Grano, 20-3-1, 16 KO's, in Grano's own hometown in a 10-round heavyweight challenge. The number of Tomasz's legion of loyal Polish boxing fans may well rival the popular Grano's hometown crowd. One thing is certain, the house will be rocking at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT.

Main Events CEO, Kathy Duva said, "This match up is against two guys that are right in front of each other and can punch, either can go at any time. This promises to be an exciting brawl."

Headlining the card is a 10-round middleweight contest featuring Brooklyn's Curtis "Showtime" Stevens, 24-3, 17 KO's against tough Saul Roman, 37-9, 31 KO's of Tijuana, Mexico. In a 10-round cruiserweight battle "Fast" Eddie Chambers, 36-3, 18 KO's, from Philadelphia meets up with South African, Thabiso Mchunu, 12-1, 9 KO's.

Adamek is happy to be back in the ring, "After fighting four fights in 2012, I was able to take a rest. Now I feel I will be able to get back in the ring refreshed and remind all my long-time fans what the 'Mountain Boy' is really about." He added, " I understand Grano is a fighter who really comes to fight. I intend to do the same. I think all of our fans will be pleased on August 3rd."

Grano said,  " I am very grateful for this opportunity. I'm excited to fight Adamek." He also agreed with Adamek's sentinment, " Adamek comes to fight, as do I. This is going to be a great show for all of our fans."

Adamek never recovered from the Vitali beating, probably never will. Or maybe he´s just getting old..
