The details connected with the organization of the fight between Tomasz Adamek (41-1, 27 KO) and Michael Grant (46-3, 34 KO) are accepted by both fighters. The contract is already prepared and waits for signatures. The battle will take place on August 28 in Atlantic City or on September 2 in Newark, as Adamek said to the journalists of Bokser.org.The first date will be possible if the organizers manage to postpone a concert scheduled on that day in Atlantic City. The heavyweight bout would be televised by ESPN which works on rescheduling the concert.
Why the choice of Team Adamek is Grant? There are two reasons. First of them is connected with financial and organizational issues. It turned out that none of top American TV's wants to broadcast the Pole's fight against Roy Jones Jr. The second candidate, Evander Holyfield demanded 400 thousands dollars for the fight. Obviously, the sum of money would not be adequate to his last results and the current level presented by the 47-year-old boxer. The second reason connected with the Grant's choice was the fact, that Adamek already thinks about fighting against one of Klitschko brothers. The clash with tall and strong Grant will be an excellent test for the Pole before facing Vitali or Vladimir.
Presently, Adamek rests after the hard bout against Chris Arreola but it's probable that the 33-year-old Pole will have to come back to a serious work soon. The best option for Adamek on the nearest fight seems to be Prudential Center in Newark with numerous and loud Polish supporters. However, the distance between Atlantic City and Newark is no more than four hours of the drive, so Adamek would expected his fans also there.
