Klitschko Vows To Get a KO, Adamek Plans a Killer Pace

Vitali Klitschko intends to make short work of Tomasz Adamek when he defends his WBC belt against the mandatory challenger in Poland on Saturday. The world heavyweight champion, 40, will take on home favorite Adamek in front of 42,000 fans at the Miejski Stadium in Wroclaw.

"I will give my best to improve my knockout rate," he said.

Klitschko has 39 knock-outs in 42 victories, plus two defeats, and his current knock-out rate stands at 88%.

Speaking to German TV channel RTL, he added: "The only thing I can promise is that there will be no questions after the fight about who won the battle."

Alongside younger brother Wladimir, who holds the IBF, WBO and WBA titles, the Klitschko brothers dominate the division and the Ukrainian will have a 15kg (2st 5lb) weight and 11in (28cm) height advantage over Adamek, who is six years younger.

Adamek is a former world champion in both the cruiserweight and light-heavyweight divisions, but Klitschko is expected to dominate.

"I want to say one thing - you have to be born as a heavyweight," said Vitali Klitschko. "Tomasz Adamek has only grown into the division by eating like a heavyweight."

But Adamek, who has a record of 44 victories, with 28 knock-outs, and a solitary defeat, believes his small stature will bring some benefits.

"My pace is going to kill him, it's as simple as that," said Adamek. "If you are slow, he is going to hit you, but if you are fast, then afterwards he won't know where he is."

Meanwhile, brother Wladimir, 35, said on Thursday he expects to fight again at the end of the year, but does not yet have a confirmed opponent.

"I want one more fight this year, probably in December. Exactly where and against whom, I cannot say yet," he told Germany TV channel RTL.

If Vitali wins it will be by KO or Decision. If Adamek wins it will be by cuts most likely. I don't rule out cuts but I just don't see how Adamek is going to get close enough to Vitali to cause cuts without taking damage himself.
