The April 24th clash between heavyweight contenders Cristobal “The Nightmare” Arreola (28-1, 25 KOs) and Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (40-1, 27 KOs) at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California, was officially announced today.
Arreola: “I’m sure Adamek will come prepared to beat me, but it’s not gonna happen. A win over Adamek would get me a step closer to fighting for a world title again, which I am looking forward to doing in 2010. But first, April 24th. I think I will have to be 240 pounds, 245 max, because I don’t believe he will want to exchange punches with me and it looks like I will have to chase him around the ring.”
Adamek: “I will not run from Arreola. I will be easy to find in the ring, if he wants to find me. Why should I exchange punches with Chris, when I can make him miss, and then hit him? Whatever works for me on that day I will do. I think in the ring I will change tactics, I’ll see what’s gives me the greatest advantage during the fight.”
