Adamek's Old Trainer Disputes Marco Huck's Sparring Tale

By Luke Furman

In the last few weeks, Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) and Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KOs) have exchanged verbal punches over an old sparring session which took place several years ago. In his version of the story, Huck claims that he controlled the action and punished Adamek with power. The Polish former two division champion was angry with Huck's story, calling it "total crap." Adamek's claims that he outboxed and frustrated Huck.

Adamek's old trainer, Andrew Gmitruk, was present for the sparring session. He says Adamek had the clear edge in their sparring session.

"During the sparring the majority of the technical aspects, and the skills, were in favor of Tomasz Adamek, who already at that time was considered one of the better-trained athletes in the world in his division," Gmitruk said.

Gmitruk is surprised with Huck's decision to move up to heavyweight to challenge "regular" WBA champion Alexander Povetkin.

"The transition to heavyweight by Marco Huck is a decision that undoubtedly surprised the sport, journalists and fans. The decision is more controversial because of the opponent. Alexander Povetkin a multiple champion of Russia, a two-time European champion, an Olympic champion in amateur boxing and the WBA champion in professional boxing," said Gmitruk.

Is this the same trainer that sold Adamek out and said he was on roids?
