Adamek Rips Robbery Claim: He Ran, This Was Sparring!

By Luke Furman

Former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek is furious over claims that Steve Cunningham was robbed in their rematch on Saturday night at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in PA. The fight was initially called a draw but then one scorecard, announced at 115-115, was later announced at 115-112 for Adamek, and then changed again to 115-113 for Adamek. The Polish star had won by a score of 116-112 on the second card, and Cunningham was given the win with a card of 115-113 on the third.

Adamek said the fight was close, but he felt Cunningham refused to engage and ran during numerous rounds. He called their rematch a "sparring session" and said he was ready to fight again right away.

"That was like sparring. Not very many punches were thrown. I feel like I can go back into the ring and fight again. The fight was close, my trainer told me I had to go after him after the eighth round, and I felt he ran against me. It was part of the plan to come on late in the last 20 seconds of each round. In a few rounds, I tried to attack him, and he would run. He ran. I fought. It's why I won," Adamek said.

[QUOTE=No Bias;12849640]Cunningham does not belong in the HW division. If he ran from Adamek, he'd run from everybody else. Good decision though. Close fight. Adamek edged it out in last 2 rounds.[/QUOTE] FOH, lmmfao!
