Adamek Admits To His Training Errors With V. Klitschko

By Luke Furman

Former two division champion Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28KOs) admits to making some big errors in preparing for his recent fight with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Adamek, who trained in the United States, had issues adapting to the climate of Poland. Adamek's manager Ziggy Rozalski had advised him to hold his training camp in Poland, but he didn't listen. Klitschko stopped him in the tenth round of a one-sided fight in September. Adamek is back in training for a March return in the United States.

"I didn't have it together, like there were things that I wanted to do, but nothing happened. The errors were terrible. I did not react well to Klitschko's punches. [Trainer] Roger [Bloodworth] has no doubts, he believes that the cause of the problems were acclimatization problems. I wish I had listened to Ziggy, who advised me to prepare in Poland. On December 18 in New York, where me and Ziggy received awards from the New York Boxing Hall of Fame, the famous trainer Emanuel Steward had the same opinion [regarding the acclimatization," Adamek said.

Adamek should admit he is not in the same division as Vitali and then shut up. He was manhandled and he is a middleweight for starters. Go cry to your mama.

[QUOTE=paulf;11615111]Seriously? You lost because you weren't acclimated to your own damn country? Adamek was small and weak in comparison to Klitschko and Vitali treated him as such. Vitali could lose an arm and still destroy Adamek.[/QUOTE] I doubt it. He…

He's right, it was all acclimatization problems. Had nothing to do with a monstrous size mismatch, or that he didn't figure out how to actually punch Vitali, or that he got hit so many times my face hurt watching on…
