Klitschko vs. Adamek in September?

Well, Wladimir Klitschko has sure moved on quickly from the latest failed attempt to get in the ring with WBA beltholder David Haye, as it looks like he will be facing Tomasz Adamek in September after taking on Dereck Chisora in late April. The fight isn't 100-percent signed, sealed and delivered but it certainly looks like this will become a reality very soon.

In an email sent to Maxboxing, Kathy Duva of Main Events (Adamek’s Stateside promoter) explained:

"The fight is done in the sense that we have agreed to the general, material terms. The lawyers are working on the wording of the agreement now and we are all optimistic that the deal will be done, with contracts signed sometime next week.

The fight will take place in September in the new soccer stadium in Wroclaw, Poland, which is currently under construction. It is one of four that are being built or refurbished in anticipation of the 2012 European Soccer Championships. In Europe, this would be analogous to making Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao as the opening event in the Dallas Cowboy’s Stadium when it was new. It is a very big deal. Wroclaw is located on the border of Poland and Germany. In fact, at one point in time, Wroclaw was part of Germany and then the border was moved. It is also driving distance from Ukraine, so the location is ideal for this particular event. Because being the first event in this stadium is, obviously, a one time opportunity, the deal will be structured in such a way that if for some reason Wladimir cannot fight in September, Vitali will be the opponent instead."

Adamek plans to fight on April 16th against a still-to-be-determined foe.

WEEKEND FLURRIES

I don't have a horse in this race but are some folks conveniently forgetting that Haye twice had deals in place to fight the Klitschko brothers. As of now, his championship run consists of Nicolay Valuev, John Ruiz and Audley Harrison. That speaks for itself...I found this interesting; in the WBA 140-pound ratings, Marcos Maidana still holds the top spot, followed at number two by Victor Ortiz...A source tells me that Yory Boy Campas and Matt Vanda will go at it again on Feb. 18th in Mexico. Folks, don't kill the messenger...I think Stanford should consider themselves fortunate they went one-for-two as it related to Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh...If I was Bud Adams, I would've kept Jeff Fisher over Vince Young, too...Might as well go on the record now; I got New England and Green Bay as my Super Bowl picks...
