Adamek, 45-2, 28 KOs, a former world light-heavyweight and cruiserweight champion, faced Vitali Klitschko for the WBC belt last September. Tomasz lost that bid for the heavyweight title by TKO after ten rounds, but bounced back nicely in March with an impressive points win over tough Nagy Aguilera in Brooklyn, NY. Adamek is driven to earn another chance at boxing’s biggest title.
Adamek spoke of Chambers, ""They say Eddie Chambers has fast hands and likes to throw punches. I am also fast and I like to throw punches. I think on June 16th we will have a very exciting fight." Adamek is very pleased to be returning to Prudential Center, "For me the most important part of the fight is to please the boxing fans. At Prudential Center I always have many fans come to cheer me on, it is very loud, exciting. I think it will be a good show."
In 2010, Eddie Chambers, 36-2, 18 KOs, took on IBF-WBO-IBO-Ring Magazine champion Wladimir Klitschko, in his lone try for the heavyweight crown, but was stopped in the 12th and final round. Since that bout, Chambers defeated Derric Rossy by lopsided unanimous 12-round decision, in Atlantic City last year. Chambers, a Pittsburgh-born Philly fighter, is considered by many to be the best American heavyweight on the scene.
"I never went away, but once I beat Adamek, I’m right back in the middle of it all," said Chambers. "All respect to Tomasz. He’s exciting and has a lot of heart, but I’ll be ready for anything."
