    Ok I will tell you...i identified an area with good oil and gas potential near Prague. The greenies, supported by Russian money, made a big stink about our operations possibly ruining their water, which was complete bs. Meanwhile there was a working quarry nearby that looking like an atomic bomb had blasted off part of a hill top! The closest town looked like it was right out of a 1950 Soviet postcard. There was nothing we were going to do that would have been worse than that quarry, and we would have created jobs for the poor slobs in the dreary concrete apartment buildings.

    In Poland, on the other hand, we were supported by the local and Warsaw government AND the local population.

    Oh well, that's water under the bridge.

    Elsaev seems to be a hard hitter. In another order of things, why the **** were they fighting for the Austrian title? A russian and a czech, at least Elsaev lives in Austria, but Adamek...

    Jumbo takes on Bosnian-Croatian glass cannon Emil Markic on Sunday. Chance to both score an upset (Markic is 29-2 with 23 kayos) and capture the WBO European light heavyweight title.

    Match-ups like this are fascinating. Adámek is more durable than anyone Markic has stopped...but also not as dangerous as either of the people that stopped him.

    Hmmmm. I was going to tip this one Adameks way but Markov has a solid win over Liebau a fellow glass cannon. Wouldn't rule out an upset but the Bosnian wins by decision or late stoppage.

    Yeah, that puzzled me too. I'm thinking "is Jumbo even a step down from Liebau, all things considered" and...honestly idk. :lol:

    @Somachenko do you know if Adámek vs. Markić is going to be watchable anywhere?

    Double-whammy of disappointing news ...

    1. I'm having no luck finding a television outlet
    2. Just noticed that Emil Markić is co-promoting this event...in his own home town...:confused:
