Adamek's Trainer: Haye Forgot His Balls, Tomasz Won't

By Keith Idec

Roger Bloodworth knows most people perceive Tomasz Adamek as having little chance of upsetting Vitali Klitschko on Sept. 10 in Wroclaw, Poland.

Adamek’s trainer also thinks those people are wrong.

“Personally, I think it’s going to be a lot better fight than most people think,” said Bloodworth, who is preparing Adamek for the WBC heavyweight title fight in Bushkill, Pa. “Most people have written Tomasz off. They think he doesn’t have a chance. But we like that. It’s a challenge. It makes you train harder. People are going to be very pleasantly surprised. This is going to be a fight.”

Bloodworth and Adamek also promised that fans will be much more pleased with his effort than the one offered by another former cruiserweight champion that fought a Klitschko brother.

“One thing Tomasz will do that David Haye didn’t do is try,” Bloodworth said. “[Haye] forgot to bring his balls. He left them at home.”

Haye incessantly talked trash about Wladimir Klitschko prior to their highly anticipated July 2 fight in Hamburg, Germany.

The brash British fighter performed poorly, though, and lost a lopsided 12-round decision. Haye (25-2, 23 KOs) further hurt his cause after the fight when he claimed a broken right pinky toe suffered during training camp partially prevented him from beating Klistchko (56-3, 49 KOs).

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Adamek (44-1, 28 KOs) won’t make any excuses if he loses for the first time as a heavyweight, nor will the popular Polish contender taunt 6-7, 250-pound Vitali Klistchko (42-2, 39 KOs) during the promotion of a fight that is expected to draw a capacity crowd in excess of 42,000 to Wroclaw’s Municipal Stadium.

“Tomasz and I both kind of agree that if you’re going to fight somebody,” Bloodworth said, “you don’t have to talk trash about him.”
