Adamek Does Not Plan on Facing Klitschko in 2012

By Luke Furman

Reacting to rumors in the American press, former two division champion Tomasz Adamek (46-2, 28 KOs) denied the possibility of a fight with unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (58-3, 51 KOs) on December 22nd. Adamek is looking to continue his winning ways after suffering a stoppage loss in last year's title fight with Vitali Klitschko. Adamek returns on September 8th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The reported opponent is former champion James Toney.

"I do not plan on fighting for the championship of the world this year. I have a set plan of work [for my career] with my trainer Roger Bloodworth and manager Ziggy. I will be ready to fight for the belt in 2013......I think in the summer. I have a lot of work to do in the ring. If I was only looking for money, then of course I'd fight in December with Klitschko. But I'm not greedy for money. I want to show my best possible boxing and I want to fight with class to get the victory. I have my honor and I will not go out to the ring when I'm not sure of success," Adamek said.

[QUOTE=jray100k;12317387]If James Toney is healthy this could be a interesting fight. "Lights Out" Toney landed some big fights within the last yr or so against Lebedev and now Adamek. Looks like JT is trying to get a title shot against…

[QUOTE=Drunk Punch;12317215]Don't understand Adamek's logic, none of the opponents he faces are anything close to Klitschko level, so what's the point? He wasn't good enough and never will be, all the training in the world can't change that. Unless he…
