Former two-division world champion Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) has brushed off reports that he withdrew from a planned fight with Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9KOs) due to fear.

Adamek stated last week that there were far more lucrative opportunities on the table for other potential fights. According to the Polish star, there was no financial motivation to move forward with the Pulev eliminator.

But about Adamek having fear of Pulev, no... If you're not scared stepping in the ring with Vitali, you're not afraid of anybody...Post a Comment/View More User Comments (14)
