ADAMEK VERSUS SZPILKA
On November 8, everyone in Poland will be watching what’s happening in Krakow Arena, where Polsat Boxing Night will be a center stage for historic clash between the most successful Polish professional fighter Tomasz “Góral” Adamek and charismatic Artur “The Pin” Szpilka.
For the long time, for more than a year, Adamek and Szpilka were only involved in a duel of words but on November 8, their fists will be finally speaking. The prestigious, best Polish heavyweight title, will be on stage; it will be about who hits harder, who has more heart and perseverance. Winner will be decided during 10, heavy fought rounds and it’s rightfully advertised as the boxing “Moment of Truth”!
37-year-old Tomasz Adamek has an illustrious professional career, winning light heavyweight and cruiserweight championship belts. He also fought, unsuccessfully, for the WBC championship title against already legendary champion Vitali Klitschko. 12 years younger Artur Szpilka for now only dreams of Adamek’s accomplishments but wants to do what Adamek was not able to achieve – Artur wants to be first Polish heavyweight world champion. But this is the future – the present, is to overcome much more experienced fighter with Gilowice.
For Adamek, Szpilka fight is as much about pride than anything else. He already announced that if he loses this fight, he will end his great boxing journey. For Szpilka, who dreamt about fighting Adamek for a long time, “The Moment of Truth” is – for now – a pinnacle of “The Pin” young heavyweight career. Boxing fans in Krakow Arena will also see long anticipated return of Dawid Kostecki.
For the first time in two years, after spending time in penitentiary, highly skilled and highly controversial fighter from Rzeszów will have to prove again why was considered one of the most talented men in light heavyweight division. In Krakow, Kostecki will be tested, in scheduled for eight rounds, bout against Andrew Sołdra from Nowy Sącz.
The historic Kraków, the capital of Małopolska, will also host another great event – the first professional fight on Polish soil of former WBA world title contender and European middleweight champion, Grzegorz Proksa. Polish fans have been waiting his return since 2005, when “Nice Super G” signed a professional contract. In a duel of top Polish middleweights, boxer from Węgierska Górka will face undefeated Maciej Sulęcki.
Polsat Boxing Night, most prestigious boxing gala of 2014, will also be a chance to prove his skills for one of highly regarded, talented fighters from the young generation of Polish boxers – Michał Syrowatka. Syrowatka will do his best to upset rapidly climbing through the rankings, fast and dangerous Michał Chudecki.
On November 8, boxing aficionados in Kraków Arena will also see Ewa Piątkowska – one of the hardest hitting ladies in Polish boxing.
