For a few days I waited in silence and thought about how people were judging my fight with Walker. I read many different articles. Today after calming my emotions, I can say that many fans appreciated my win. This time the predictions proved themselves in the ring. It was a war of fists.
Another training camp is behind me. Last week I devoted some time for meetings and Polish picnics. Over 11 thousand people came to the Polish-American Festival in American Czestochowa. It was organized by a Catholic seminary called Ojcow Paulinow located in Doylestown, PA. Polish group of Gorale came from Chicago. I had a very enjoyable time meeting them. Even though I am far from home I had a strong sense of belonging here being among so many of my fellow countrymen. You could feel Poland by seeing peoples' clothes, their conversations and the overall great atmosphere. Mentally I am tired from training so hard. Yesterday in Newark there was a press conference with all the boxers representing themselves on Saturday night.
Another few weeks of training is behind me. Adam showed up at the gym and asked if we needed him. Adam Kownacki, there is talk about him returning to the ring. His left hand was injured and he did not fight in over a year. He called Ziggy Rozalski and asked for training time in the gym while I prepare for the fight with Walker. We quickly came to an understanding and Roger Bloodworth offered to help train Adam. This way after a few sessions Adam was sparring with Adamek and doing pretty well. You can see in him a hunger for boxing and a heart for it.
Roger Bloodworth, Ziggy Rozalski and I were on Ziggys yacht on Lake George. The week of rest was very nice because I was still getting used to the time change in the USA. Last Sunday I went along with my trainer to the American Czestochowa, where I was warmly greeted. Tomorrow there will be a press conference devoted to my August 8th fight with Walker in the Prudential Center.
