Last weekend was rich in events.  On Saturday my friends and I went to Philadelphia for a soccer match. Piotr Nowak had invited us. Piotr is a trainer for the Philadelhpia Union and the co- owner of the club is Nick Sakiewicz, he is of Polish descent.  Piotr Nowak’s team beat the New York red Bulls, who’s home field is located close to my home.  I cheered for Piotr’s team, who afterwards showed me around the stadium.  He promised that he will come to my fight against Vinny Maddalone on December 9th in Newark.

 Also, I me with the newest sport immigration from Poland, Mariusz Wach and Piotr Wilczewski.  One day, I showed them how hard I train and how many different exercises there are.  The future world class  trainer Piotr Wilczewski, was very glad he got to stand by and watch, how my trainer Roger Bloodworth and I train. He will surely add some of the exercises to his training plan when he returns to Poland.  Right now I am not worried about fights with Mariusz Wach, because my soonest fight is with the short Maddalone.  Our meeting with Mariusz and Piotr are meant to exchange wisdom at the table, not in the ring.  I  am helping them find themselves in life, far away from Poland.  Mariusz must train very hard in order to gain strength which was lost during his time of because of his arm injury.  He started fighting and is fighting with famous boxers.  I also went to a tournament in Linden New Jersey where ametour diamonds shine.  I commentated for a local boxing television and I met with local boxing fans.  There was also an incident- Mayor of the Town surprised me with readiness for my fight with Adamek, but I shook my finger and he settled down.

During my training in the beginning of the week, Bobby Gunn  came in wearing a black Adamek Boxing Team shirt.  He told me that he heard that I am training for for a fight with Maddelone and that I would need a sparring partner who fights similarly. This way, Bobby will fight Adamek for a couple of days.   He is around me and cheers for me at every occasion.  Our fight began a thread of friendship between us.  He, street killer who fought over  100 street fights bare fisted, is looking for his place in between the ropes of the ring. He promised me a rematch for a lost fight.  Oh these sparring should be interesting.   He boasts that he has yet to be put down on the floorboards by anyone and you can see love for the ring in his eyes.

We talked about the Briggs-Kliczko fight, most of them are not note worthy.   We have to understand that the opponents to the Kliczko brothers started losing the fight in the locker room. Only important predictions in the press conference were only the media predicting something that could not happen.  The Kliczko brothers give out cards in the heavy weight division but only because no one has been able to defeat them.  My steady uprising into the heavyweight division is giving me sport success and the very necessary experience.  I know my body, my weak and strong points.  Now its time to build a strategy with my trainer which will lead me to gain the title. It is not important who I am fighting but how I am to fight. Together with Roger Bloodowrth I must work on a effective tactic for the fight for the belt.  Excellent cooperation with my trainers gave me wins with Estrada, Arreola  and Grant.  American boxing saw my spectacular growth in the heavyweight division.  The Media showed their opinions and the federations ordered higher places among rankings.  In the December issue of the THE RING, the magazine will present my achievements on some of its pages.  I feel that everything is going in the right direction. In the next week I will increase the weight of my training because strength training is coming up.   Trainer Tyler Woodman said that he has worked on another individual training cycle for me. That is it for now, time for a small nap after training.
