Cruiserweight world champion Tomasz Adamek will make his first title defense on Feb. 27 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., Jolene Mizzone of Main Events told ESPN.com on Thursday night.

The fight will be the main event of a special edition of Showtime's "ShoBox: The New Generation," Mizzone said.

Adamek's opponent has not been determined, but B.J. Flores (21-0-1, 13 KOs) has been in talks with the cruiserweight champion's promoter, Main Events, about the fight for the past few weeks. Main Events has given Flores a Friday deadline to make a decision.

I'm rather certain the fight will be Adamek against the dreadfully boring Flores, which will hopefully result in Adamek scoring a crowd-pleasing win and moving on for a rematch with Steve Cunningham.

Flores has real stinker potential, though, as he proved against usually-exciting Darnell Wilson, a win some debated. He's a solid boxer, which against Wilson is plenty to win. Against Adamek, who has a strong amateur background, I don't think it's good enough.
