Adamek Public Workout in Wroclaw Poland; Rosado vs. Collins weigh-in

Tomasz Adamek participated in an public workout today at Magnolia Park Mall in Wroclaw, Poland. Adamek was warmly received by a crowd of over 500 of his loyal Polish fans, and answered media questions after his workout.

In a blatant continuation of his ongoing attempt to bait the imperturbable Tomasz Adamek, Vitali Klitschko breached the security agreement his own team designed regarding the open workout today. Klitschko skipped his own grand entrance in favor of an intimidation tactic that clearly did not affect the Polish favorite. Arriving in the middle of Adamek's public workout, Klitschko sat with his entourage at ringside to observe the simple demonstration Adamek performed for his fans. Adamek did not feel it necessary to reciprocate by remaining for Klitschko's workout.
