Klitschko vs. Adamek: Tomasz’s only hope is to just try and survive!
By Dan Ambrose:
It’s sad when you get a horrible mismatch like Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28 KO’s) vs. WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KO’s) where one fighter, Adamek, basically no chance at all to win the fight and merely coming into the bout to get destroyed or totally dominated in defeat. That’s how this one is going to play out. Adamek and Klitschko will meet on September 10th at the Stadion Miekski in Wroclaw, Poland. Adamek will have a huge Polish fan base at the fight cheering everything he does, but it won’t matter. He’s not going to win and the only thing he can really decide is his how he’ll lose.
Adamek can go out bravely by going straight after Vitali in the early rounds, and get mowed down or he can run and maybe survive to lose by a humiliating lopsided 12 round decision. Both outcomes are bad, but he has few options. Adamek doesn’t have the size, power, speed or chin to win this fight by actually fighting Vitali. He’s not going to be able to go at him and trade and come out on top.
We saw recently in Adamek’s carefully managed fights against C level fighters 38-year-old Michael Grant and 37-year-old Kevin McBride, that Adamek can’t even trade with weaker fighters without dashing away to try and survive. Now Adamek is jumping up two levels in facing an A+ Vitali Klitschko, and it’s academic that Adamek is going to lose this fight. He can survive, but only by running and embarrassing himself by fighting in a David Haye-esque manner.
If I was Adamek’s trainer, I would just have him go right after Vitali and hope for the best. Adamek can’t out-box Vitali and he’s not going to knock him out. But at least if he goes after Vitali and fights him hard for a couple of rounds before getting totally destroyed, Adamek can win some respect from his fans and maybe around the world depending on how badly he gets knocked out.
Do you agree with that article, or do you think a featherfisted Natural Lightheavy, who fought 32 of his 45 fights at Lightheavy, & a further 7 at Cruiser, can defeat the currently seemingly invincible Dr. Ironfist
Vitali? Remember how seriously Adamek strugged & was rocked a few times by Obese Arreola, struggled & was rocked by washed-up Old Grant, struggled with Fat Estrada & was dropped by Morbidly Obese, Old Shot Bummy McBride... Now recall how Vitali has utterly dominated every single opponent he has fought since begining his comeback in '08, usually beating the living crap out of them in the process. Within his comeback reign as the extremely dominant WBC Champion, VK has brutally beaten Peter & Gomez (Adamek would've lost to those versions which Vitali smashed) both inside the distance, & brutalised the same Arreola who gave Adamek hell.
