Lennox Lewis: Tomasz Adamek Needs a New Trainer

By Luke Furman

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis has joined the list of critics who believe that Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KOs) should get a new trainer. Last Saturday Adamek, a former two division champion, was beaten badly by WBC king Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs). The slaughter was stopped by the referee in the tenth round. To secure a third title in his third weight division, Lewis has advised him to replace Roger Bloodworth with a new trainer.

"Tomasz is a great boxer, he's very brave and he came to fight against Klitschko. However, he was badly prepared. Adamek can become a world champion, but he needs a good trainer. Roger Bloodworth is not a world class trainer. He needs someone better, someone who will prepare his tactics. Iin the fight against Klitschko, he wasn't blocking punches, he was taking them on the face," Lewis said.
