Sauerland: Adamek Has No Shot To Beat Kubrat Pulev

by Ruslan Chikov

Promoter Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event watched, and wasn't impressed, with Tomasz Adamek's controversial twelve round split decision victory over Steve Cunningham from Saturday night.

The fight was a semi-final IBF eliminator for a shot at WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko. Adamek (48-2, 29KOs) now has to fight Sauerland fighter Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9KOs) in a final IBF eliminator and the winner will become Wladimir's mandatory.

The mandatory fight could take place in March or April, but the location has not been determined.

"Adamek performed well below expectations. In my opinion Cunningham won the fight by several points, and Adamek has no chance of beating Pulev," Sauerland stated.

[QUOTE=PittyPat;12853460]I think Pulev would embarrass and humiliate Adamek, and possibly stop him to avoid any robberies. Hell, if big giants like Dimitrenko and Ustinov fell at the hands of the kickass Bulgarian, just imagine what he'd do to Tomek.[/QUOTE] Adamek…

[QUOTE=Slowhand;12854804]Kalle got it right, Pulev will jab Adamek to submission. Not many fighters are the same after facing Vitali. Peter, Adamek, Briggs, Solis, even Sanders.. Big Bro ruined a lot of careers.[/QUOTE] Pulev will stop Adamek.

Kalle got it right, Pulev will jab Adamek to submission. Not many fighters are the same after facing Vitali. Peter, Adamek, Briggs, Solis, even Sanders.. Big Bro ruined a lot of careers.

The HW division belongs to Eastern Europe and will keep doing so for a long time.

Not often I agree with Kalle, but have to hear. Adamek is damaged goods at this point. Vitali completely wrecked him, and Pulev or another top tier HW will surely finish the job.
