Tomasz Adamek: Vitali is More Predictable Than Wladimir

Heavyweight Tomasz Adamek is ready for his date with Kevin McBride on April 9. It was be the final fight for Adamek before a set meeting with either of the Klitschko brothers in the fall. Adamek (43-1, 28 KOs) takes on McBride at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (35-8-1, 29 KOs). The Klitschko fight is going to take place at a soccer stadium in Poland.
With IBO/IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko signing a contract to face David Haye on June 25 or July 2, it creates the heavy specualtion that WBC champion Vitali Klitschko is going to become the likely brother to face Adamek. Vitali is defending his belt next Saturday against Odlanier Solis in Germany. Between the two brothers, Adamek considers Wladimir as the tougher opponent because of his boxing ability.

I think Vitali is more unpredictable and shows more variation in his performances, but Wlad is better at the things he does. Even if you know someone is going to look to control you with their jab, sometimes there's not…Comment by jimmy1569 on 03-09-2011
[QUOTE=Money Shot;10210023]If 40 y/o Vitali comes through unscathed against Solis and Adamek, two very tough young contenders, he's an ATG legend in my book. Adamek might be his last fight unless Haye gets lucky verses Wlad.[/QUOTE] The plan is Solis..…Comment by Norton on 03-09-2011
Solis, Haye, Adamek - seems like brothers intend to completely clean out the HW division this year. And yeah, Vitali is predictable - I can surely predict that he will defeat Adamek.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (18)
