Heavyweight Contenders set to Collide June 16th at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ
Main Events announced today that Tomasz Adamek and Eddie Chambers will face off in a battle of heavyweight contenders, on Saturday, June 16, 2012, at the Prudential Center, in Newark, NJ. The fight is the feature bout of the fourth edition of NBC Sports Network's nationally televised "Fight Night" boxing series. The TV broadcast will begin at 9PM ET.
The competitive 10-round contest pits two former title challengers against each other in an important fight that should move the winner up the heavyweight ladder, and place him closer to a second crack at one of the Klitschko brothers. Given the goal of both Adamek and Chambers is to win the heavyweight title, it figures that they are approaching this fight as a "must-win".
