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.

Sometimes boxing resembles that old series of Miller Lite commercials, where the rival factions take turns shouting at one another, "Great taste!"/"Less filling!" That's what I like about this Eric Raskin column. It preaches the Miller Lite lesson, "Why not both?"I thought the two sides would stop shouting at each other after Andre Ward's performance...
