“I simply cannot imagine that you can slap one Klitschko brother during the press conference and spit in face of another before the fight,” said heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek Sunday, not mincing words talking about what happened in Munich before and after the fight of his recent rival Vitali Klitschko. “This is not some dark street, this is a job, and those are professionals. I cannot even fathom to think about it, forget doing it. Dereck Chisora is lucky that Wladimir did not react, because he would leave Munich most likely with a black eye and without the money. Same with the tussle between Chisora and Haye during the post-fight press conference. What are those guys thinking?”
Adamek (44-2, 28 KO) is already working with his trainer Roger Bloodworth in Jersey City to get ready for his upcoming fight (March 24 on NBC Sports Network), his first fight since his September 10, 2011 loss to Vitali Klitschko in Wroclaw, Poland. “Goral” expects to know his opponent very shortly – Nagy Aguilera (17-6, 12 KO) and Donnell Holmes (33-2, 29 KO) are under consideration.
Adamek said that he is working to add power to his ring arsenal. “We were working on it during three two-week mini-camps, now it’s the time to put those lessons to test during sparring sessions and on March 24 during the fight,” said the former IBF cruiserweight and WBC light heavyweight champion, who currently is working in the gym with Bobby Gunn (21-4, 18 KO), who is expected to fight current IBA beltholder James “Lights Out” Toney (73-7, 44 KO) in April.
