NEWARK, N.J. — Fresh off his dramatic comeback win against Travis Walker on Saturday at Prudential Center, Tomasz Adamek knows when he’ll fight next.

The popular Polish heavyweight contender is scheduled to return Dec. 22, probably somewhere in Atlantic City. The fight will be broadcast on free TV by NBC, as part of promoter Main Events’ partnership with NBC Sports Network.

Adamek’s opponent isn’t set, but Cuban-born heavyweight Odlanier Solis (18-1, 12 KOs) is at least under consideration. Fellow former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham, who wants a chance to avenge his December 2008 loss to Adamek at Prudential Center, is not on the list of potential foes for Adamek’s Dec. 22 return.

If Adamek (47-2, 29 KOs), a Kearny, N.J., resident, and Philadelphia’s Cunningham (25-4, 14 KOs) are to pick up where they left off after 12 riveting rounds nearly four years ago, it won’t happen until sometime early in 2013.

There’s public interest in a Cunningham-Adamek rematch because they’re both small, tough heavyweights who always come to fight. If Adamek faces Solis, though, it’d be a significant risk in terms of jeopardizing Adamek-Cunningham II.

“It would be awesome to get the rematch with Adamek,” said Cunningham, who won his heavyweight debut on the Adamek-Walker undercard by out-pointing Jason Gavern (21-11-4, 10 KOs) in a 10-rounder. “I’m sure if HBO wants it, he’ll do it. I want it, of course, to try to avenge a loss. I know Kathy Duva would like to do it, and it’s easy to put together now that we’re promoted by the same promoter. But if it doesn’t happen, my career goes on.”

Adamek, who overcame a second-round knockdown to stop Walker (39-8-1, 31 KOs) in the fifth round, wouldn’t discuss potential opponents during the post-fight press conference Saturday night.

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko]Im not sure why that changed but i was looking forward to Pulev vs Adamek. People talking about Solis destroying Tomasz need to stop living off what if's and look at reality. Glazkov in his 13th fight just brutalized Airich who had a much more competitve fight and even won a cou...

Solis would have 2 dedicate himself 2 train & take off wait &I don't think he has that discipline...it may come off as Adamek is fun 2 watch but I'd like to c a 2 handed- Chambers rematch...

Solis on a good night might be the only guy who can beat the klitschkos or atleast hang with them, if hes in good shape he destroys everybody else and KO David Haye again like in the amateurs

I do favor Solis for big margin but adamek is a solid fighter..it will depend of Solis conditioning..even when he is really fat he don't get really tired..

Solis has to be the biggest disappointment in awhile. At the olympics he was a slick and quick fighter. Had he only put on 10-15 lbs after the Olpympics, I think he could have been a great fighter. Instead he came to America and discovered Popeyes.
