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."
