Adamek Targets Three Fights in 2012, No Title Bouts
By Luke Furman
Former two division champion Tomsaz Adamek admits that he fought Vitali Klitschko too soon and needed more time to become a solid heavyweight. Adamek (44-2, 28KOs) challenged Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title in September, but saw himself dominated and stopped in the tenth round. Adamek plans to fight three times in 2012. He won't target another shot at the world crown until 2013 at the earliest.
"I made a mistake. Two years of boxing in the heavyweight division is not enough time to overcome Klitschko. Also, I flew into Poland too later [for the Klitschko fight] and had no time to acclimatize. In the ring I was not himself. I won't make this mistake again. After this defeat, I have to rebuild. I don't want to fight for the title no earlier than 2013," Adamek said.
Adamek is looking to return in March in the United States and then wants to stage a fight in Poland in the summer.

I guess he hopes the Klitschkos are retired in 2013. Vitali will but im not shure about Wladimir.Comment by Drunk Punch on 11-15-2011
So he'll beat up some HW bums like last time in his preparation for Vitali. C'mon Tomasz get back to CW and have some fun.Comment by TaurusJ27 on 11-15-2011
I wouldn't be surprised if one of those fights was a rematch with Arreola.Comment by nycsmooth on 11-15-2011
He's not a heavy...stop being so lazy abd greedy (as most boxers moving up in wt),/take off the weight & got to Cruiser, you're barely competitive...Comment by Tiozzo on 11-15-2011
