After last year’s ferocious battle, Briggs v Adamek II promises a highly charged and exciting bout. It will also be the first time Paul Briggs will step in to the ring with his new “Firepower” moniker, signaling a new arrangement with Firepower Technology and the move away from his kick-boxing title “Hurricane”.
“Last bout I said everything I needed to say and this time around it’s just about doing it, Briggs said. “This is going to be great because I get to go back into the lion’s den and get the loss back. He couldn’t hurt me last time and I know he does have power but the pressure we are going to put on him is going to be ridiculous.”
Australian fans can watch Paul “Firepower” Briggs, who has been preparing for the rematch with renowned Australian trainer Johnny Lewis, on Foxtel’s Main Event this Sunday 8th October from 11am. Foxtel will also be airing free replays of the 2005 Paul “Firepower” Briggs v Tomasz Adamek through out the day on Friday 6th October.
