Adamek vs. Arreola press conference quotes
Adamek Quotes: “I will not run from Arreola. I will be easy to find in the ring, if he wants to find me. Why should I exchange punches with Chris, when I can make him miss, and then hit him? Whatever works for me on that day I will do. I think in the ring I will change tactics, I'll see what’s gives me the greatest advantage during the fight.”

“It was an easy choice to fight Arreola, because we are similar in many ways – we want to fight and give people what they deserve. This is what my career is all about.”
“I’m tired of answering questions like why a “small” heavyweight like me wants to fight a big Chris Arreola. As we could see today, I’m the same height and maybe couple – ok more than couple – pounds lighter. But 220 is my natural weight – I checked before the press conference, I'm still relaxing after the Estrada fight, and I was still 220 lbs. So it’s natural, I don’t have to gain any extra pounds. I have three square meals day, like everybody.”
Adamek about not fighting in front of fanatic Polish fans in Newark:
“Maybe they will be there! I’m pretty confident that it will be sizable Polish contingent, maybe 2000 - 3000, maybe even more? We travel well, there’s a big Polish colony in Arizona and California, and many of my fans from East Coast and Chicago will be there. Maybe it will be red and white all over Citizens Business Bank Arena stands! “
Adamek re: How different is this fight and if Arreola is the best fighter he even fought?
“I don’t know if this will be my toughest fight, I still think fighting 12 rounds with the broken nose against Paul Briggs is a number one on the “tough” list. How good is Arreola? I can answer this question after April 24. I know he will come to fight; I appreciate the effort he always brings to the fight. There’s not many like me and him anymore.”
“I’m excited about bringing a can’t miss ‘Fight of the Year” to Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario and Southern California and, especially, the Inland Empire,” Arreola exclaimed. “I am really looking forward to performing in front of the home crowd.
“I am happy to get back in the ring after a win against Minto and I’m just looking to continue my winning ways fighting a good, experienced fighter like Tomasz Adamek. He’s a former world champion in two divisions and he’s moved up to heavyweight with two fights under his belt.”
“I’m sure Adamek will come prepared to beat me, but it’s not gonna happen. A win over Adamek would get me a step closer to fighting for a world title again, which I am looking forward to doing in 2010. But first, April 24th.”
“I think I will have to be 240 pounds, 245 max, because I don’t believe he will want to exchange punches with me and it looks like I will have to chase him around the ring”.
