Adamek Has No Interest in The IBF's Four Man Tourney

By Luke Furman

Former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek (46-2, 28KOs) spoke with the Polish media and openly rejected the IBF's four man tournament to set a mandatory challenger to IBO/IBF/WBO/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko. A few days ago, the IBF ordered a four man box-off with Kubrat Pulev facing Odlanier Solis, and Alexander Ustinov challenging Adamek. The two winners would then face each other to set a challenger to Wladimir.

Adamek has no desire to fight in Europe and notes how his next two fights are already planned in the United States for the 8th September and the 22nd of December. Once 2013 comes around, Adamek plans to pursue a world title shot. He refuses to entertain the possibility of changing those plans.

If Adamek is not taking part it would be nice if Fury steps in. Or maybe Perez. But Pulev will not take part as well i think.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;12324030]The promoters rejected Toney, who is very angry about it.[/QUOTE] Toney is constantly angry anyway -- goes with being punch drunk. I guess I'd be angry too if I owed the government $350,000.

Adamek will only fights in a tournament if the whole thing takes place in New Jersey and the fighters are Adamek, McBride, Toney and Maddalone. He fights terrible opposition and loses when he steps up - WAKE UP.

[QUOTE=jsfd26;12323575]So this guy went from fighting good opposition to fighting shot fighters and ducking tourneys? I guess the schooling Chambers put on shot his self esteem down.[/QUOTE] Losing to a one-armed fighter can't be good for one's confidence.
