Adamek's Refusal on Pulev Makes a Big Mystery in Poland

By Luke Furman

It was reported a few days ago that Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) withdrew from a final IBF heavyweight eliminator with undefeated Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs). The winner would have become the mandatory challenger to unified champion Wladimir Klitschko.

"I have been offered an opportunity to fight in Poland for far more money than I would get for fighting Kubrat Pulev,” Adamek said in a statement. “Meaning no disrespect to Pulev, he has never held a major title and never headlined a televised card. Any money generated by the promotion would, for the most part, be generated by my popularity. I owe it to my family to engage in the most financially rewarding bouts, and engaging in a bout with Kubrat Pulev at this time simply does not make financial sense. "

Adamek's comments have created a mountain of speculation in Poland on who he will fight in coming months.

According to statements from several Polish networks - including Polsat, nSport and Canal Plus - no recent offer has ever been made to Adamek for a big event in Poland.

It will be interesting to see who, and where, Adamek fights next.

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;13042007]Let's face it, Adamek is not gonna win a hw crown against the KBros. I'd give him a good chance to beat Povetkin, and maybe he's posturing himself for that fight. I've also heard that he might face up-and-coming fellow…

[QUOTE=Bloody$Nate$;13041400]He won't rematch Cunningham or Chambers, won't fight Pulev. What is wrong with this guy? He should probably just retire if wants to keep fighting tomato cans because after too long one of them could upset and knock him out.…
