Tomorrow we are starting strength training with Tyler Woodman, he prepared a new set of excercises for me. I spent the last few days with Ziggy and with friends at Alexander lake between Canada and USA.
My rest at the lake was an end for my vacation which I will not have this year. Everything is organized to realize my biggest dream. The world title in the third weight category will not suddenly appear, it has grown on me for a few years. You have to have a set goal in your life as well as dreams. Once I complete one goal another one arises. This makes me feel complete. All these goals are a result of talking with trainers, with Ziggy or others that are close to me. A clear goal is a big calling and the road that leads to the ring in Wroclaw has to be followed with the right training.
Witalij Kliczko, the world champion and the holder of the WBC belt will defend the title and the belt on Polish land. There is some symbolism in all of this. I attained my first world title belt in USA also from the WBC federation, but seemed to me that I did not have the right to do it in a ring. The belts that I gained after that were almost like ring routine and I got used to the transitions into new weight classes. After each decision I got supported as well as criticism. I changed promoters, trainers and places of residence in order to evolve and attain my goals. It wasn't always easy but can boxing be easy when you have opponents throwing blows at you? The one that wins is better, or rather has more blows. Sometimes the amount of hits doesnt matter as much as the one knock out hit. I always want to give a big show in the ring because that is what the fans want to see.
I have always said that a short and brutal fight is not accepted by boxing fans. Then nasty comments always appear, especially towards the losing fighter. Going into the ring I am never sure that I am going to win but I always tell myself that I want to win and that is most important. My own psychological standing and believing in winning is a huge aid and I can't get that from a psychologist. Yesterday I was at HBO where I had many promotional photos taken. Among the conversation I was reassured that in a month our fight can be watched on HBO. This will be the last promotional meeting, and a lot points to that the tickets will be difficult to obtain.
I have received many letters from my fans, for which I am very thankful. Some ask for autographs and gadgets. I have written about this before that I do not have the technical means or time to send thousands of autographs to Poland and USA. I give out autographs and photos during meetings with fans. I would like to thank Andrzej Tomaszewski, who sent me a great musical piece. In his letter he names the people that have worked on it: Diego - (Adamek Promo) production: Freez Beatz skrecze: DJ Teak . I ask that you please post this music on the internet so that everyone can become familiar with your talent. I also received a new caricature from Mariusz Bialoblocki drawn by Kazimierz Drapiewski a graphic artist from Namyslowo. Everything shows that I am building a strong psyche for my upcoming fight. Its good to know that thousands of Polish fans await my success, no matter their place of residence.
