Popular Ukrainian light heavyweight Vyacheslav “Steel Power” Uzelkov (21-0, 13 KOs) will return to the ring on October 21st at Sport Palace in Kyiv. Undefeated WBA Inter-Continental light heavyweight champion will defend his belt in the main event of a huge boxing tournament which will be held by K2 East Promotions, promotional company of Klitschko brothers in the capital of Ukraine. Uzelkov will face Tomas “Jumbo” Adamek (14-1-1, 6 KOs) from Czech Republic, Uzelkov’s foe was finally named at the presser held in Kyiv on October 13th.
Alexander Krasyuk, General Manager of K2 East Promotions was the first to take the floor: “We will do everything possible in order that in his next bout Uzelkov will fight for the world title.
Then Vyacheslav Uzelkov gave some comment on the upcoming clash against Adamek: “I heard about him for the first time a few days ago only. It is not unusual for me – many times I faced situations when my foe was named at the last minute but I always came out victorious. I knew the date of my next fight as long ago as half a year. Last July in Odessa I had a nice tune-up fight and you’ll see how prepared I am on October 21st. I have been training a lot and hard. During last month I had nice sparring sessions with guys from Ukraine and Russia. I know that Tomas Adamek shone in the ring when he fought as an amateur, however, my amateur record is even better and I have more fights in my pro record. Be sure that I’ll have no problems with Adamek in the ring”.
