Heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28KOs) is not looking to stick around in boxing for too much longer. The Polish superstar is looking to retire after a few more fights. Adamek, 34-years-old, challenges WBC champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39KOs) on September 10 before a crowd of over 40,000 fans at Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw, Poland.

Adamek has captured major titles at light heavyweight and cruiserweight and his goal of possibly capturing a heavyweight title is only one fight away. When he planned to make his move to heavyweight, he was discouraged by those around him - because Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, who are much larger, were still ruling the division.

"I knew that once I moved up to heavyweight, I would have to beat the Klitschko brothers in order to reach the goal of become heavyweight champion. The plan is still the same. I want to arrive to the ring against Klitschko, win the heavyweight title, and then retire after a few more fights," Adamek said.

never a good sign when a fighter is talking retirement scenarios before the biggest fight of his career....

And there you have it. That's all I needed Adamek to say before I put the .00000001% chance of him winning back on Vitali's side.
