Adamek's Trainer: Vitali Klitschko is Better Than Wladimir

By Luke Furman

Veteran coach Roger Bloodworth is training Tomasz Adamek (45-2, 28 KOs) for his scheduled clash with Eddie Chambers (36-2, 18 KOs), set for June 16th in Newark, New Jersey. Last September Adamek took a beating before being stopped in the tenth round of his challenge of WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.

Adamek is hoping to get in position to challenge the younger of the two brothers, IBO/IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko.

"I want to make it clear that Klitschko was outstanding [in the fight with Adamek]. I'm not saying that if Tomasz got another chance he would beat Vitali, but I am sure that he would fight better, much better. Vitali is one of the greatest champions in heavyweight history. Wladimir is brilliant, but not as good as Vitali. The two brothers have very different characters, different personalities. Vitali is not only strong physically, he is also strong mentality. Wladimir has strength but - I think he is not as strong mentally. This difference is often decisive in boxing," Bloodworth said to Polish Boxing News.

[QUOTE=Mr. Invincible;12065288]Lol, at the soft competition you speak of Vitali has taken. You need to do a little history work before saying that garbage. Since his comeback, Vitali has faced mostly RING top ten guys and was the man before…

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;12066478]Wlad's better than Vitali IMO. He's a better fighter and is certainly the greater fighter.[/QUOTE] Agreed. Better arsenal (when he chooses to use it) and a better resume equals the greater fighter.

Wlad's better than Vitali IMO. He's a better fighter and is certainly the greater fighter.

Head to head I would pick Vit over Wlad. Its a styles thing though and doesn't mean Vitaly is the better fighter, and there is certainly no way he is greater.
