Tomasz Adamek vs. Eric Molina tonight

adamek5439-year-old former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek (50-4, 30 KOs) will be trying to keep his struggling career alive tonight in his scheduled 12 round fight against former world title challenger Eric Molina (24-3, 18 KOs) at the Tauron Arena (previously Krakow Arena), Krakow, Poland. There’s an excellent chance that Adamek will lose this fight if Molina remembers to throw punches, and doesn’t fight in a timid manner like he did against Deontay Wilder last year.

Adamek, #8 WBC, has lost two out of his last three fights in losses to Vyacheslav Glazkov and Artur Szpilka. The only win Adamek has gotten in the last two years was against 48-year-old Przemyslaw Saleta last September.

Surprisingly, the World Boxing Council doesn’t seem to mind that Adamek’s career is imploding because they still have him ranked in their top 10 despite him losing two out of his last three fights. Adamek’s last true victory over a quality opponent was four years ago when he beat Steve Cunningham and Eddie Chambers by controversial decisions.

Boxing Fans Win With Spectacular Undercard Saturday Afternoon, September 8th Prudential Center, Newark, NJ “Ironbound Throwdown”

September 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News 

NEWARK, NJ – When Tomasz “Goral” Adamek returns to Newark’s Prudential Center on Saturday afternoon, September 8, 2012, the popular Polish Kearney resident will headline the “Ironbound Throwdown”, another big boxing card featuring a total of four world-rated contenders in three big heavyweight fights.

Scheduled to begin at 2PM, this rare afternoon event brings some of the top names of the current professional boxing scene to Newark’s “Ironbound” neighborhood, which has become a hotbed for pro boxing in recent years. Topping the card is former two-time world champion, now rated #4 among heavyweights, Tomasz Adamek, 46-2, 28 KOs, who will face #12 rated Travis Walker of Tallahassee, FL, 39-7-1, 31 KO’s in a 12-round heavyweight battle for Adamek’s IBF North American Heavyweight Title. However the action on this card is not confined to the main event.

Highlighting the undercard is former two-time cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 24-4, 12 KOs, who makes his heavyweight debut against Jason Gavern, of Harrisonburg, VA, 21-10-4, 10 KOs. Cunningham, of Philadelphia, currently rated #3 among cruiserweights, recently decided to make the move to the lucrative heavyweight division, looking for bigger challenges and the heavyweight paydays that come with them.

In his most recent bout, Cunningham failed to reclaim his 200-pound IBF championship when he dropped a 12-round decision to Yoan Pablo Hernandez in Germany. Cunningham is currently working to add weight to his perfectly conditioned frame without sacrificing speed or mobility, as he steps up for the first time to face the larger opposition in boxing’s glamour division.

In Jason “The Sensation” Gavern, Cunningham meets a fighter who holds wins over Darnell Wilson and Manuel Quezada, as well as a draw against Johnathon Banks. The always game Gavern is expected to provide the kind of test that will answer any questions about whether Cunningham can compete at his new weight.

In a special 8-round bout, high-rolling Philadelphia heavyweight prospect Bryant Jennings, 16-0, 6 KOs, takes on hard-punching Chris Koval of Youngstown, OH, 25-9, 18 KO’s. “Special K,” 30, will try to stop the impressive streak that “By By” Jennings has been riding since January. In his last three outings, Jennings has climbed into the top-ten rankings with victories over Maurice Byarm, Sergei Liakhovich, and Steve Collins. His win over Collins earned Jennings the USBA Heavyweight Title.

In a highly anticipated 8-round battle of junior lightweight prospects, “The Corpus Christi Kid,” undefeated Jerry Belmontes, 16-0, 5 KOs, meets Dominican-born Joselito Collado, 13-1, 3 KOs, of Jamaica, Queens, NY. A former amateur star, Belmontes will look to start making noise in the professional ranks with a victory over the highly touted Collado, who is coming off a March decision win over Juan Carlos Contreras in a bout that promises to be a war.

Two preliminary bouts round out the action-packed card: Jersey City’s Jose Peralta, 9-1, 5 KOs, is scheduled to appear in a 6-round junior welterweight fight against Christian Steele, of Philadelphia, 3-4, 1 KO’s and Philadelphia’s up and coming lightweight Karl Dargan puts his perfect 10-0, 5 KOs record on the line in a 6-round lightweight fight versus Cincinnati’s tough Jesse Carradine, 8-1-1, 4 KO’s.

FIGHT INFO:

Prudential Center doors will open at 1:30PM, first fight is 2:00PM.

TOMASZ ADAMEK MEDIA WORKOUT WORLD BOXING GYM, JERSEY CITY, NJ

August 25, 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News 

In anticipation of his upcoming IBF North American Heavyweight title defense, Tomasz “Goral” Adamek , of Golwice, Poland and Jersey City, N.J. 46-2, 28 KO’s took part in a media workout. Adamek will face tough Travis “Freight Train” Walker, of Tallahassee, FL, 39-7-1, 31 as the main event of the “Ironbound Throwdown” at Prudential Center, Newark NJ during the afternoon of September 8th.

Here’s what Tomasz Adamek and Roger Bloodworth had to say:

Tomasz Adamek:

How are your preparations for the upcoming fight? “We are fixing mistakes from the last fight. Every fight brings me something (new). We are training every day. Like Roger says, ‘every day you learn a little bit more’. I feel much better with every fight. After I win this fight and the next fight, I hope to get title fight next year.”

Photo Credits: Mike Gladysz

Have you ever seen any of Travis Walker’s fights? “Yes, I’ve seen a couple of his fights. He’s a strong guy. He loves hard fights. I love (hard fights) too, because it is good for my fans. I don’t want to give boring fights. If somebody runs and doesn’t fight, people do not like that. I want a tough fight because people love this.”

Roger Bloodworth:

Thoughts going into this fight? “Tomasz picks tough opponents. Some people don’t think this guy is tough, but he is tough. I watched him knockout Kali Meehan. He’s still got a good right hand and if you get touched by that right hand you could go. So Tomasz is going to have to try to avoid this and land his own punches. It’s not rocket science. He (Walker) is gonna come. I don’t expect him to try to be a ballet dancer; I think he’s going to come to Tomasz with bad intentions. So Tomasz is going to have to be on his A game, avoid that big right hand and we’ll see what happens.”

Photo Credits: Mike Gladysz

“Every fight that Tomasz has, is with the intent of getting back into a title fight. I mean, why fight ‘Joe Smith’ or ‘Bobby Jones’ or just a body, what does it mean? It doesn’t mean anything. You are talking about a fighter (Adamek) that has only lost two fights and they were two of the best fighters in the world, he is far from done. Even if something were to happen here, it’s a learning experience. He learned a lot from the Klitschko fight and if he performs well he’ll bring it to this fight.”

Photo Credits: Mike Gladysz

How do you assess Tomasz’s form going into this fight? “He’s right on schedule…You have to work on everything. We know this guy (Walker) is going to try to come in and knock Tomasz out. Anybody who can touch you on the chin and put you to sleep is a difficult opponent.”

“We want him (Walker) to bring it! Tomasz is better against people that bring it than people that run. I think this is going to be a very interesting fight, really a crowd pleasing fight – as always! Tomasz does not put on dull fights.”

“Ironbound Throwdown” September 8th at Newark’s Prudential Center features Tomasz Adamek vs. Travis Walker.

BIG AND BAD FREIGHT TRAIN WALKER READY TO ROLL OVER ADAMEK

August 21, 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News 

NEWARK, NJ – Travis “Freight Train” Walker, 39-7-1, 31 KOs, has waited a long time to make his move in the heavyweight division. The eight-year pro originally from Tallahassee, FL, has fought all over the world against major competition. But he will get his biggest opportunity to gain attention from the boxing public when he faces former two-time world champ Tomasz Adamek, 46-2, 28 KOs, in the 12-round main event at Newark, NJ’s Prudential Center on Saturday afternoon, September 8, 2012. Adamek’s IBF North American Heavyweight Title will be on the line in the fight.

“This is probably my biggest chance,” Walker said. “I’m very confident, and feel really good about it. I’ve been at this place before, and I’m very proud of myself for getting here again. It was a long, long road I travelled to get back here.”

At 6’4 ½” tall and weighing in at about 245 pounds, the 33-year old Walker is taller, heavier, and younger than Adamek. The Tallahasse native will look to leverage these advantages when he meets the former champ in the rare afternoon-set fight card.

Walker looked like a “Freight Train” in his last bout, when he brutally halted Kali Meehan in the sixth round of their IBF Pan Pacific Heavyweight Title Fight in March. Meehan could not take the punishment dealt by Walker, and the contest was stopped less than one minute into round six.

In contrast, Walker feels Tomasz Adamek had a tough night in his last outing–a 12-round points win over Eddie Chambers at Newark’s Prudential Center in June. Walker hopes that he can prove that Adamek’s difficulties with Chambers were signs of slippage that will help to improve his own chances.

“I don’t think he’s the fighter he was,” Walker said of his opponent.

With 31 knockouts in his 39 victories, it is clear that Travis will be looking to over-power the tough former champion, who is currently ranked #3 by the IBF. However, Walker knows that he will have to do it in Adamek’s adopted backyard.

Prudential Center has been “home field” for the Polish-born Adamek, who attracts big crowds of loyal and loud supporters every time he fights in Newark. Although competing in enemy territory is never easy, Walker has made a career of it, and he takes such assignments in stride. After being the underdog in distant locales such as Germany and Australia, fighting in New Jersey seems like a piece of cake.

“I’ve been doing it my whole life, so it’s nothing new to me,” Walker said. “I’ve been to everybody’s backyard. I’m going into this fight with the mind frame that I’m not going to win unless I stop him. I’m not going to force the knockout, but I really believe that I have to have one.”

On September 8th, the “Freight Train” pulls into Newark for his chance to shake up the heavyweight rankings. All aboard!

Heavyweight thunder coming to WealthTV Adamek vs. Walker headlines heavyweight triple-header Sept. 8

Filed under: Boxing News 

SAN DIEGO (August 16, 2012) – American boxing fans have a fascination with heavyweights and WealthTV, the latest destination for boxing’s premier live events, is committed to bringing the best action to its growing list of subscribers.

WealthTV has secured the live US television rights for the International Boxing Federation (IBF) North American heavyweight fight with world title fight implications for the winner on September 8, pitting two-time, two division world champion battle Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (46-2, 28 KOs) against hungry Travis “Freight Train” Walker (39-7-1, 31 KOs), presented by Main Events in association with Peltz Boxing and Ziggy Promotions, live from the luxurious Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Last month, WealthTV showcased rising star Tyson Fury’s (19-0, 14 KOs) fifth-round technical knockout of veteran Vinny Maddalone, live from the United Kingdom.

Currently rated No. 4 by the IBF and No. 9 by the WBC, Adamek’s most notable victims include Paul Briggs (twice), Thomas Ulrich, O’Neil Bell, Steve Cunningham, Jonathan Banks, and Chris Arreola, among the more notables. Adamek’s only two losses as a professional have been to world champions Vitali Klitsckho and Chad Dawson.

Tomasz Adamek

Travis Walker

“This will be an exciting fight to watch,” predicted Charles Herring, president of WealthTV. “Adamek is rated No. 4 in the World and he has tremendous talent and speed. Walker is recognized as a legitimate US heavyweight, displaying fan-friendly action, good size and dangerous power. We’re excited to feature this top-world rated match on WealthTV.

The 27-year-old Jennings, now rated No. 8 by the IBF, has developed into one of the hottest heavyweights in the country. His last three victories were against opponents sporting a combined record of 63-5-2 – Steve Collins (DEC10) for the vacant USBA title, former world heavyweight champion Sergei Liakhovich (RTD9), and Maurice Byarm DEC10 for the vacant USA Pennsylvania strap.

Topping the card is former two-time world champion, now rated #4 among heavyweights, Tomasz Adamek, 46-2, 28 KOs, who will face #12 rated Travis Walker of Tallahassee, FL, 39-7-1, 31 KO’s in a 12-round heavyweight battle for Adamek’s IBF North American Heavyweight Title.

Highlighting the undercard is former two-time cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 24-4, 12 KOs, who makes his heavyweight debut against Jason Gavern, of Harrisonburg, VA, 21-10-4, 10 KOs. Cunningham, of Philadelphia, currently rated #3 among cruiserweights, recently decided to make the move to the lucrative heavyweight division, looking for bigger challenges and the heavyweight paydays that come with them.

Cunningham is currently working to add weight to his perfectly conditioned frame without sacrificing speed or mobility, as he steps up for the first time to face the larger opposition in boxing’s glamour division.

In Jason “The Sensation” Gavern, Cunningham meets a fighter who holds wins over Darnell Wilson and Manuel Quezada, as well as a draw against Johnathon Banks. The always game Gavern is expected to provide the kind of test that will answer any questions about whether Cunningham can compete at his new weight.

Three preliminary bouts round out the action-packed card: Jersey City’s Jose Peralta, 9-1, 5 KOs, is scheduled to appear in a 6-round junior welterweight fight; Philadelphia’s Karl Dargan puts his perfect 10-0, 5 KOs record on the line in a 6-round lightweight fight, and Brooklyn’s Shem Pagan, 2-0, 1 KO, goes for win number three in a 4-round junior welterweight contest.
