Klitschko-Adamek final presser

Klitschko: “I hope for a short fight”; Adamek: “Great Klitschko story will end Saturday night”

Photos and report by Przemek Garczarczyk

“I’m not over the hill. I know the dangers when you’re fighting too long. I have people I trust who will tell me right away that I should stop boxing. But there’s no danger for me when I will be fighting Tomasz Adamek on September 10. I’m in the top form, better than ever because I know exactly what I did wrong in my previous fights. Everything what I do now serves a purpose, every movement in the ring is calculated, nothing is wasted. You will see the proof of it Saturday night,” said Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KOs) to Fightnews.com during his final press conference before he fights Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28 KOs) showdown in the picturesque City Hall of Wroclaw.

Adamek countered, “I know how to beat Vitali Klitschko. I know that he’s a champion, but I’m convinced that Saturday night I will be three division champion. Trust me, it will happen. Every great story has to end. His great story as a champion will end on Saturday.”

Sounds like both fighters are ready, both are in top form, both are sure they can win – at least on paper, we have a prescription for a classic fight. (more…)

Klitschko-Adamek Quick Quotes

Photos: Dmitriy Abramov/KMG

Vitali Klitschko: “This is my title and I will never lose it inside the ring. I am in very good shape and I cannot wait to show once again that I am the best…after my brother Wladimir and me, Adamek is the third best heavyweight in the world. He is definitely better than David Haye who is just a world champion in talking.

Tomasz Adamek: “I have studied Klitschko a lot. It will be a great fight and at the end I will be the new world heavyweight champion.”

Tom Loeffler, K2 Promotions: “This is not only a heavyweight championship fight, this is a worldwide sports event that will be seen in over 120 countries. The soccer stadium in Wroclaw will be sold out with 42,000 boxing spectators and it will be the first show held in this brand new stadium.” Click here for more photos…

Fury: Firtha fight a risk

British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he will battle with 6’6 Nicolai Firtha at Belfast’s King’s Hall on September 17 because he wants to give the Irish fans a night to remember. There was a lot of talk about me fighting Martin Rogan and a few other names like Mike Perez and Leif Larsen were mentioned,” said Fury, “but I’ve accepted to fight Firtha who’s a lot younger than Rogan and has mixed in a lot higher company than any of those other guys. With two weeks to go I know this is a risk, a gamble but I’m a true fighting man and a man of honour and I’m prepared to fight any man on the planet and I want the Irish fight fans to come out and see a real fight not some knock over job.” (more…)

Linares with USA Olympic Team

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former two-division world champion Jorge Linares is training in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the home of the U.S. Olympic boxing Team because his trainer Freddie Roach is a special consultant for USA Boxing and the team will be competing in the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan in September and the Olympics Games in 2012. “It’s a great experience living here with the USA Boxing Team,” said Linares. “Every day is a chance to daydream about being an Olympian, doing physical training routines other than what I do Alex Ariza who is focused on a different strategy (specifically strength). Anything that involves being part of a team has benefited my determination and mental strength to overcome Antonio DeMarco in October 15.” Linares-DeMarco is for the vacant WBC lightweight title.
