Tomasz Adamek: I Will Remain at 224, 225 For Power
By Luke Furman
Former two division champion Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KOs) plans to remain around 224, 225-pounds for power and strength. The Polish star felt a little overwhelmed in his tenth round knockout loss to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs) in September. As previously reported, Adamek has bulked up with some muscle and plans to continue working on the power of his punches with trainer Roger Bloodworth. Adamek hopes to return in March 2012 in New York or New Jersey.
"We train twice a day. Roger says that I need to improve the impact of my punches and my strength. In his opinion, as I weigh 224, 225-pounds, I hit harder, so we will not go down [in weight]. I trust him completely and I'll do as he says," Adamek said.
Just tough talk on Adamek's part after facing the wrath of Vitali Klitschko. Until he proves he's getting in the ring again...... Vitali has retired his last 3 opponents & 4 out of the last 12.Comment by Evil Abed on 12-28-2011

[QUOTE=Freedom.;11610070]Adamek should go back to cruiserweight, where he can become a champion again. He doesn't have a big enough frame for heavyweight.[/QUOTE] True enough, but it won't happen. Adamek will finish up at HW, for better or worse....Comment by TheGreatA on 12-28-2011
I don't think he will gain any power and the weight will likely slow him down, but apparently he feels quite confident in his ability. He's not a young man anymore and this could be his last shot at glory,…Comment by Freedom. on 12-28-2011
Adamek should go back to cruiserweight, where he can become a champion again. He doesn't have a big enough frame for heavyweight.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (5)
