Aragon 'Brawlroom' Site of ESPN Fight

Chicago will once again return to the national boxing spotlight when Tomasz "The Polish Warrior" Adamek takes the ring against Gary Gomez this Friday at the Aragon Ballroom, in a 10-round bout slated to be televised on ESPN2.

Adamek, the No. 1 IBF mandatory cruiserweight contender and a former light heavyweight champion, will be joined on the card by middleweight Andrzej "The Polish Prince" Fonfara taking on Derrick "Superman" Findley in the co-main event. Undefeated super middleweight Pior Wilczewski and undefeated heavyweight Mariusz Wach are also on the card, which kicks off at 7:15 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Adamek has fought in Chicago twice before, both times facing Australian Paul Briggs. In their 2005 bout, Adamek claimed the vacant WBC light heavyweight title at the United Center.
