Pound4Pound recently caught up with Jason “Big Six”
Estrada and got his views for his upcoming match with
former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion
Tomasz Adamek. Estrada (16-2, 4 KOs) takes on Adamek
(37-1, 27 KOs) February 6, 2010 in Newark, New Jersey
for the IBF International Title in a scheduled 12 round
bout. Here is what the former amateur star and 2004 USA
Olympic representative had to say in regards to the
Hey Jason, you’ve got a tough match made with Tomasz
Adamek, who just entered the heavyweight division with
his devastating destruction of Andrew Golota. How are
you approaching your training this time and what is your
prediction on the fight?
As always, I feel that it’s really gonna be a good fight
but I don’t think he and his people really are going to
be able to handle this decision [on who they picked as
an opponent], you know what I mean? He had good success
at light heavy and had some success at cruiserweight,
but this is the heavyweight division. I’m not old, I’m
not slow, you know I have great defense. I can hit what
I want to, you know what I mean? I’m tough in there; I
don’t understand why he would take this fight but he is
going to have to go through hell.
What are you looking to do after this fight? Do you
have any plans?
No, no, I actually like to just take it fight by fight.
I don’t want to jump the gun; I want to stay focused on
him. I’ve already started my training camp light, but
we’ll start to pick it up Monday.
Are you bringing any special training partners into camp
to prepare for his style?
We’ve been trying to look around, trying to see to see
if we can get somebody who is at least similar in a way,
but right now we’re just going around checking to see
who we can get up here and hopefully everything works
out. We’re going to win anyway, but I wanna step up the
sparring this time.
Jason, thank you for your time and we wish the best of
luck to you. Expect to hear from us again to check on
Aaron, thank you. I appreciate it.
