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.
I had a reporter tell me that thanks to my fights the Prudential Center has become a mecca of professional boxing. Before that hockey, basketball and other social events ruled the arena. Now huge billboards all around it invite people to boxing galas. I will not reveal anything about my weight today although I am slightly above 100kg. I am happy that on Saturday night the audience and viewers at home will get to enjoy interesting fights. In U.S. the fight will be shown by NBC. In Poland for the first time it will be shown on PPV. Boxing, KSW and soccer will all be shown around the same time. There is some protest in PPV regarding the event. I know though that my fans will resolve this problem and will watch the fight on TV Saturday night. There are occasions to watch the fight with larger crowds. A large group of my fans flew to the U.S. and they strongly believe that I am going to win the fight with Walker. I hope that the fight will go as I imagine it to and I will win it easily. Before the end of the year there will be another fight organized in December to ensure that I will be one step closer to winning the belt. Tomorrow there will also be other interesting fights among the top boxers in the world. I am interested to see how these fights will plan out. I hope that everyone will enjoy watching the fight no matter where they are watching it from.
