It’s Adamek vs Klitschko in Wroclaw

Krakow Tours - Boxing

Tomasz Adamek will get his, “Chance of a lifetime,” to fight reigning IBF and WBO World Heavyweight Champion Vladimir Klitschko, in September and in Poland to boot, at Wroclaw’s Euro 2012 football stadium.

Against the background of shenanigans surrounding the Ukrainian’s match with Britain’s David Haye, Adamek’s team put together a proposal and got the ink dry on the contract in double quick time, leaving Adamek to begin preparing for the chance to win a world title at a third weight division.

For now, the two fighters are saying only nice things about each other in a heavyweight love-in. “Adamek’s proposal was extraordinary. To fight in Poland, in a new, big stadium – I really liked that idea,” purred the Ukrainian champ. Meanwhile Adamek, in Przeglad Sportowy, cooed, “I have enormous respect for him, but no worries – I know what I’m fighting for.”

Sosnowski gets chance at world title

KRAKOW TOURS – Albert Sosnowski will challenge Ukrainian WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on May 29 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Thirty one year old Sosnowski , the Essex, England-based Polish European heavyweight champion, had previously been scheduled by to fight UK’s Audley Harrison for the European championship. But a chance at the world title was just too good to turn down.

“It’s a dream come true,” said the Pole, who has a record of only two losses in 48 fights.

Sosnowski, born in Warsaw, is also pleased that Germany will be hosting the bout. “Many Polish and Germans with Polish roots live in the Gelsenkirchen area and I hope that they will support me.”

Despite Klitschko’s fearsome reputation, Sosnowski was confident of success. “I will be the first Polish heavyweight champion of the world,” he said
