Yeah, count me as one of the people who thinks Adamek has a decent chance. I***8217;m a fan of the Klitschko***8217;s (admittedly, a lot more for Wlad) but I think Vitali has slowed down a lot and his punches aren***8217;t nearly as fast or crisp as they once were. It***8217;s just a reality that happens to all boxers. If Adamek keeps up a solid work rate I definitely would not be completely surprised to see an upset.

Cant see it Scott, Vitali is too big. Yes i usually pick small guys like Frazier and Tyson to beat The Klitchko Machine but thats when the gulf in ability makes up for the lack of size - Bigger isnt better Better is Better! Unfortunately Adamek is just not better. He is in for a long and painful beat down, Klitchko late TKO

Did you see Adamek fight Michael Grant? It would change your opinion.


This is the history section,
just saying.

Yeah, that is a fair point. However (and no disrespect for Adamek), my feeling has to do more with Vitali's ability at this point than it does Adamek's. I just think Vitali is more on the decline than people realize. I hope I'm wrong because I would like to see Vitali win, but I think the end of his career is near.

An upset would be nice, and it would open a true path to Unification in the Heavyweight division, but I don't see it happening. Vitali will just be TOO MUCH for Adamek, who I expect to be a puffy mess by the end of this thing. He may go the distance but I doubt that too.

Vitali TKO 10 Adamek.

As always you come up with a good argument Scott. From what I have seen of Adamek at heavyweight I just don't see him beating Vitali. Vitali would have to really get old in this fight for it to happen. But I don't think Vitali has slipped to that point yet from what I've seen in his last 2-3 fights. I see him wearing down Ademak for either a late stoppage or clear decision.

Vitali TKO 10 Adamek.
Im probably a touch offensive and a little of the mark here but to me The Klitchko Machine IS UNIFIED Champion, They are like a package deal almost, u beat one u gotta beat the other...

Id be slightly shocked if Adamek as tough as he is makes it to the final bell, im calling a late TKO with the Pole a complete mess

I understand that is how they operate, as simultaneous co-Champions or whatnot but I am old school in the sense that I believe the REAL Heavyweight Championship of the World is a title that can only be held by one man at one time. It was bad enough when the ABC groups split it all up and allowed for up to 3 people at a time to call themselves heavyweight champion, but when the fighters themselves do this kind of nonsense, I gotta draw the line and call BS.

As it stands right now, a win over Vitali would not make Adamek THE Champ, just a WBC titlist with a legit #1 ranking to the Ring Heavyweight Champion, Wlad Klitschko. The path to unification I speak of is currently blocked by the Brothers Klitschko who refuse to fight eachother and have their strange policy of co-defending their brotherly interpretation of the heavyweight championship firmly in place. A loss by one, in this case Vitali, would make it possible for a fight to take place (Wlad vs Adamek) for all the belts, all the marbles, and for the first time since Lewis retired, boxing would have a true UNDISPUTED heavyweight champion.

Do you think the brothers should actually fight each other?
