The already-busy September 8 date on the boxing schedule just got busier, as Tomasz Adamek and James Toney have agreed to a fight at the Prudential Center in Newark. The fight will be on independent pay-per-view, most likely Integrated Sports, and will air in the afternoon, in part to avoid going up against Ward vs Dawson on HBO and Bailey vs Alexander on Showtime, and also so that it will air in prime time in Poland, where the fight will probably be making the bulk of its money. The fight will share the afternoon with Klitschko vs Charr, however.

Adamek (46-2, 28 KO) recently beat Eddie Chambers in a fight that Chambers fought pretty much with one arm and was competitive most of the way. He was set to return on the September 21 edition of NBC Sports Fight Night, but apparently this is just too good an offer to pass up.

Toney (74-7-3, 45 KO) has recently hit new lows in his largely wasted career. He came in at a career-high 257 pounds last year in a lethargic win over Damon Reed, then embarrassed himself in Russia against Denis Lebedev, getting down to the cruiserweight limit and doing basically nothing else, and then coming back in April of this year at 248 pounds (second-highest) to beat "bare-knuckle fighter" Bobby Gunn in Mississippi, where things like commissions aren't a big deal.

This is about as bad a fight as Adamek could make, but I think we've established that Adamek is perfectly happy to take mostly weak fights in the heavyweight division and look for about one tough fight a year otherwise. It's not the worst thing -- I'm just saying it's a thing is all.
