Boxing people should really learn how to judge, I even start to think that it should be obligatory before allowing to follow this sport, will save a lot of confusion and misunderstanding.
Edie didn't "win just one round" unless you're lazy judge who doesn't feel like looking what actually landed. He wasn't robbed either, as people seems to remember only those big punches that belonged to Eddie and forget about a lot of body work from Adamek and that a lot of his punches were only partially blocked by Eddie.
All that can be said about scoring in this fight is that one judge is an idiot and two others gave Adamek credit for amount of puncheslanded (punchstats are nothing to be looked at, plus Eddie was winning his rounds by bigger margin), rather than awarded single cleaner punches from Eddie. Fight could've gone either way, depending on judges preferences. Get some sense people.

I think Adamek romped it,I mean look at his workrate some of the punches he was landing may have looked as though they were being blocked,but he was landing,they were not fully blocked.Eddie didn't do enough,but his movement saved him being mauled on points credit where its due.

I narrowly scored it for Adamek based on superior workrate and a consistent body attack. Chambers did phenomenally well considering his handicap and didn't deserve the BS 119-109 score but I also didn't see him doing enough to win the majority of the rounds. His counter right was working a charm, but it was still being thrown too far between Adamek's flurries which, though mostly blocked or evaded, were not wholly ineffective. He was also getting hit with some very solid bodyshots which were hardly picked up on by the NBC commentating team and may have lead some viewers to totally dismiss them in forming their final verdict.
I have no problem with anyone scoring it for Chambers, but if you think he was robbed, watch the fight again minus the NBC commentary and pay attention to Adamek's bodywork. Also notice that, despite Eddie blocking the majority of Tommy's headshots, occasional cuffing hooks and right hands would get past his gloves. Chambers made it a hard fight to score due to his posturing and switch hitting which often had him throwing lead rights almost like jabs and under amateur rules would have widely outpointed Adamek. But aside from a few crisp rights, the majority of heavy shots were coming from Adamek which, coupled with his superior workrate and body attack, nicked him the fight for me.
On a side note, I don't think Adamek looked terrible (I've never considered him a particularly impressive heavyweight) but upon a second viewing I definitely noticed he was markedly more sluggish. Bloodworth's making a mistake wanting him to be so heavy. It really doesn't do him any favours either in stamina, punching power or resiliency.

This was a close fight, one of the judges is totally incompetent and should be suspended

Adamek is a beast...Chambers is good but Adamek is and always will be the better fighter....one of the most underrated in the game.
