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.
On Monday I will be training in New Jersey. The first plan was technique with Roger Bloodworth. On Wednesday I also started strength training with Tylor Woodman. We started right out of the gate but August 8th is not that far away. It is important to me that after living in the U.S. for 4 years I have adapted to the time here. It takes longer for me to adapt when I fly to Poland, only after 2-3 weeks I am used to the time change. The only sure thing about the fight in August is that it is in the Prudential Center in Newark.
