Tomasz Adamek has a new opponent for his August 3 headline bout on NBC Sports, as Tony Grano has pulled out of the fight due to injury. Adamek has agreed to face Dominick Guinn, which is basically just about as good of a fight.

Adamek (48-2, 29 KO) is fighting for the first time in 2013 after a busy, four-fight schedule in 2012, that left him feeling drained by the end. His performances against Eddie Chambers and Steve Cunningham in a pair of debated wins left something to be desired, but Adamek and trainer Roger Bloodworth are hoping the time off will have refreshed him.

Guinn (34-9-1, 23 KO) has carried on a career that never came close to living up to its early promise. The 38-year-old Guinn has become a fairly valuable "stay busy" type of opponent, and also has served as a stepping stone opponent. He hasn't fought since June 2012, when he beat club fighter Stacy Frazier, which followed a trio of losses to Kubrat Pulev, Amir Mansour, and Denis Boytsov.
