In his typical, confident manner Adamek said, “I signed to fight Jason Estrada on February 6 in my home away from home – Prudential Center in Newark.“ Jason Estrada is a completely different fighter than Andrew Golota – obviously younger, much faster, he can throw 60 punches a round. Against Estrada you have to be on your guard all the time, in every round. I did see his fight against world-class fighter Alexander Povetkin, Jason was busy, he wanted to fight – exactly what I like to do in the ring. This style of fight practically guarantees that on February 6 all my fans will have an action-packed, no holds barred confrontation. The difference between me and Povetkin will be very evident – I will do everything required to do what nobody has done to Jason before – knock him down. He’s never fought anybody as quick and accurate – I will not be intimidated by the number of punches he throws in every round – I welcome it.”
Estrada, who represented the United States at the 2004 Olympic Games in the super heavyweight division and won the gold medal at the 2003 Pan American Games, has no reservations about coming to Adamek’s home turf to fight. "I think this is a great opportunity and I want to thank everybody involved in helping to make this fight. I guarantee it's going to be a spectacular show February 6th. I want to thank Adamek, too. He's a great fighter but he's probably going to regret making this fight because I'm bigger, stronger, faster and quicker. We're going into this fight expecting to win."
Kathy Duva, CEO Main Events, expressed her delight to have Adamek come back to Prudential Center in Newark. “We thoroughly enjoyed the Golota fight in Poland, but it will be fantastic to be back in Newark to entertain all the enthusiastic NJ NY fans again. The feeling in the arena when Tomasz fights at ‘The Rock’ is electric. Tomasz has a great desire to win heavyweight championships and this fight will once again show he has what it takes. Tomasz always gives 100% and this fight will prove no different, it’s a terrific match.”
An exciting six-bout undercard featuring local fan favorites is being finalized and will be announced shortly. Tickets go on sale 12/11.
