Photo: Adamek-Cunningham II Controversial Scoring

By Luke Furman

There were two scoring mishaps this evening at the sold out Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The first time around, Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) and Steve “USS” Cunningham (25-5, 12 KOs) were announced to have fought to a draw by legendary announce Michael Buffer. A moment later Buffer announced that a score of 115-115 was actually 115-112 in favor of Adamek, which made the Polish star the winner by split decision. Later it was revealed that another scoring mishap had taken place when it was disclosed that 115-112 was actually 115-113 for Adamek. The other judges had it 115-113 Cunningham and 116-112 for Adamek. A lot of oberservers saw Cunningham as the winner.
