In Bushkill, where I live and train during the hot days. Today its 104 degrees in the shade. On days like this instead of daily running I chose intense swimming for 45 miutes.
Roger Bloodworth decided that running in this weather would not be good for my body. Probably because I would get very dehydrated. With swimming I don't have that risk. I pour enough sweat out during training and additionaly during sparring. Malik Scott, my first sparing partner is doing very well. He tries very hard because he wants to aid the preparations for my battle with Witalij in the ring. On Jluy 19th I was in New York for a press conference.
HBO organized the conference and it was located in their studio. Three years ago I decided to go to USA because only there I could count on the fast growth of my boxing career. I mentioned back then what role HBO played in my career and I believe that HBO shows my biggest fights. Unrealistic dreams may also come true. Three years ago if someone would have asked me if I would be a heavyweight fighter and box against Kliczko, I wouldn't have known what to say. Now three years later I am where I wanted to be with much that I learned in the ring. At HBO Kliczko was friendly and there was no sight of the stare of the master. He was convinced that little Adamek made a mistake by going into the heavyweight. What could I have said to Witalij? That I have to gain weight to match him in weight and buy platform shoes to match him in height? I have to win and show him that a small man can win a lot. I am beginning to notice more and more positives about my weight and height. I assure you that it will be Witalij that has a problem with little Adamek. I am thinking that when I attack him with a series of hits he will try to "hug me" Just as Kevin McBride did. He will see protection for himself in a clench and create an opportunity for himself to free up his right hit when he frees up his hold. Clenches kill the show in the ring and the audience does not like them. For me a clench from Witalij is making hits to the torso and head more difficult. I have to avoid clenches and shorten my distance. My goal is simple, Give more hits than Witalij and win more rounds in the eyes of the judges. A big prt is going to be choosing the ring judge, who will reside over the ring rules. I am sure that everything that depends on me I will execute perfectly. Witalij never fought with a fighter like me and the critics also pointed that out. I am not going to comment on my chances presented in the media. I know that I have a chance to win the belt and I will not waste it. Boxing fans share the same opinion. 30 thousand tickets were sold and there are 50 days until the fight. Fans tell me that they bought shirts and flags for their cars from the store on this website:
http://www.adamekteam.pl/group/nowosci , by the company Dirty Ray. I am still receiving letters from all over the world with advice on how to beat Witalij. I also received a letter from a press officer in Afghanistan. Polish soldiers stationed in Ghana want to connect with me before the fight via skypeAfghani mountains and mine in Wroclaw. Mani people are asking for photographs with autographs which I cannot do. Time for autographs will come in Wroclaw but right now it is time for full concentration and using any free moment to relax after training. It is important that I am in good health. And now it is time to swim...
