It has been a nice run for Adamek since he changed weight class, the
former cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek is now scheduled to fight
Michael Grant on August 21st at the Prudential Center. This will be his
fourth fight at heavyweight since moving up into the weight class.
Something all those into boxing betting take notice of.
Ziggy promotions and Main Events, along with X-Cel Worldwide,
announced the fight this Friday May 28th.

When those fell through, Adamek agreed to fight Grant, who has won his
last eight fights.
Adamek (41-1, 27 KOs) is a very popular draw for the state of New Jersey
because of the large Polish community, who follow him closely. It will be
his second fight since joining up with trainers Roger Bloodworth and Ronnie
Shields and he has shown a dramatic improvement in his skills since joining

"This fight makes so much sense for me," Adamek said. "Michael Grant is a
very big heavyweight. This fight will prepare me to fight Haye or Klitschko.
First though, I have to beat Grant and I do not take him lightly. I was
pleased with the results of my training camp for the Arreola fight, so for
Grant we will follow the same hard regimen but also work on skills that will

The 6-foot-7 Grant will be the biggest opponent Adamek has ever matched

on May 7 in his last fight.

"Michael Grant provides a new challenge to Tomasz, who must adjust to
much taller and harder punching opponents than he faced in the light
heavyweight and cruiserweight divisions," promoter Kathy Duva of Main
