Vitali: Adamek is Tough, I Will Not Underestimate Him

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko is very surprised that so many experts are writing off Tomasz Adamek. Klitschko will face Adamek, a former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion, on September 10 in Poland. Adamek is the mandatory challenger to Vitali's championship. Klitschko has a lot of respect for Adamek's ability and expects a very tough challenge.

"In the heavyweight division, one punch and one mistake can end everything. I trust myself. I believe in myself and know my skills. I will not underestimate Adamek. He was a two time world champion....a champion in two different weight divisions. He is the official challenger. I can't say no [that I won't fight him] because I would lose my title. That's why I'm training very hard and I know that it's going to be tough," Vitali said.

If he seen Adamek against Michael Grant he might consider the ex-light-heavy-champion an easy nights work. If that was a sign of things to come he would be right!

Vitali is a beast but he is also humble.

This is what I like the most about the K brothers, they are an example when it comes to discipline and hard work.
