Polish-born Tomasz Adamek recovered from a Round 2 knockdown to defeat Travis Walker on Saturday. With the five-round win, Adamek, 35, improved to 47-2 with 28 knockouts. Walker (39-8-1, 31 knockouts) sent Adamek to the ground early, but Adamek recovered in time to turn the tables. By the end of Round 2, Walker had been knocked down himself. ''I know and hear that Travis wants to knock me out,'' Adamek said at the prefight press conference, ''and this would be the only way he could beat me. Wishing and actually doing are two separate things.'' Well, Walker, 33, registered a knockdown, just not a knockout. Either way, in the end, it just wasn't enough.
