“It’s official – on September 8 I will fight Travis Walker in the always friendly to Prudential Center in Newark,” heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek (46-2, 28 KOs) told Fightnews.com. Adamek has never lost in the arena just a five minutes drive from his home. “We were ready to fight Alexander Ustinov in an IBF eliminator but his visa problems prohibited him to arrive in US. Travis Walker (39-7, 31 KOs) proved his worth knocking out Kali Meehan in his last fight. He’s ranked #12 by IBF and has full eight weeks to get into best possible shape before facing me on September 8. I hope he will be 100 percent ready,” said “Góral.” The fight at the Prudential Center will be an afternoon affair because Adamek-Walker will be broadcast live on PPV in Poland.
