Adamek vs. Pulev in Talks For Poland Showdown

By Luke Furman

Promoter Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event has revealed that negotiations have already begun for the IBF final heavyweight eliminator between Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs) and former two-division world champion Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs). Sauerland, who promotes Pulev, is very interested in making the match in Adamek's home country of Poland.

Sauerland wants to use the card to start pushing European champion cruiserweight Mateusz Masternak (29-0, 21 KOs) in Poland.

"We have started discussions with the promoters of Adamek. We want to organize a strong event. And this year, we are already planning to promote Mateusz in Poland, and such an event would be great way to start that. We have no doubt that Pulev would beat Adamek anywhere," Sauerland said.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;12903406]This one won't be controversial. Pulev isn't a crybaby, so even if he does lose a decision, he'll man up and be a good sport about it. And Kubrat isn't a runner, he'll engage Adamek and probably stop him.[/QUOTE] I…

Adamek is done. Pulev takes this; or is robbed.
