Tomasz Adamek Wants Chris Arreola or Seth Mitchell in Summer 2012

Heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek is hoping to return to the ring in March with a tune-up to get himself fresh, and then land a summer 2012 fight on HBO with either Chris Arreola or Seth Mitchell as he resumes his quest to become a titleholder at a third weight.

Adamek (44-2, 28 KO) lost in September to Vitali Klitschko in Poland in a bid for the WBC title, and recently left American promoter Main Events. He has already met and defeated Arreola, of course, as the two faced off in April 2010 on HBO, with Adamek winning a majority decision in a competitive fight.

Arreola has spent 2011 getting himself in shape and running over the likes of Joey Abell, Nagy Aguilera (video), Kendrick Releford (recap), Friday Ahunanya, and Raphael Butler (recap). Much of the talk about Arreola's future has centered on a fight with Wladimir Klitschko, but Wladimir is booked on December 3 in a grotesque mismatch with Jean Marc Mormeck.

Mitchell, the American hope for the division (for now), stopped Timur Ibragimov in two rounds on the Khan vs Peterson undercard, in what was Mitchell's HBO debut. I don't know if Golden Boy would be looking to step Mitchell up that far by the summer, but they might -- Adamek is a small heavyweight and Mitchell could simply be too strong for him. If their matchmakers see an advantage, they could make that fight, because it would be a big win for "Mayhem" Mitchell if he pulled it off.
