Tomasz Adamek is Bulking Up For Possible March Return

By Luke Furman

Former two division champion Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28KOs) is bulking up for a possible ring return in March 2012. The Polish superstar is training very hard with Roger Bloodworth and looking to come back strong from September's technical knockout loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Adamek, a former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion, has added some muscle to his heavyweight frame. He usually weighs around 215-217-pounds for his heavyweight bouts, but now he's around 224-225-pounds.

"One thing is for sure in 2012, I want to prove that despite the passage of time, I can still get a big fight to win a belt in the heavyweight division. I very much believe that the next time everything will go my way. It comes down to hard training and work and the whole team. After my defeat against Klitschko, a lot of things were confirmed and I won't make those same mistakes in the future. I weigh about 102 kilograms, which means that I added a few pounds of muscle mass and I gained it where it counts," Adamek said.

Adamek's frame is too small for heavyweight. He could be in some interesting fights with the top five cruiserweights. Perhaps he should sign with Sauerland for a few fights in Europe - he's a big draw in Poland.
