Several news outlets in Poland are reporting that an agreement has been put together for an April fight between Tomasz Adamek (43-1, 28 KOs) and Kevin McBride (35-8-1, 29 KOs). McBride stands at 6'6 and viewed by Adamek's camp as a suitable opponent before his scheduled fight with WBO/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko in September.
As reported previously on BoxingScene.com, the fight is going to move from Poland to the United States. Polish outlets report the fight is going to happen at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Based on the reports, Adamek wanted the April fight to happen in the United States for training reasons.
The contracts have not been signed and everything is verbal. Adamek hopes to finalize the details quickly.
"We do not have it signed and everything can change, as it does in boxing. As of today, the fight will be in Newark. In the evening, we'll have everything established," said Adamek.
Adamek was going to fight in Poland on April 16, but there has not been confirmation if the date is going to stay the same or get changed to another period in the month.
