Re: Vassiliy Jirov vs. Tomasz Adamek
I'd take Adamek. I think he was a bit bigger, hit a bit harder, and was just a bit better.
I think he'd come out and find Jirov easy to hit with right hands early, Jirov would get to the body in the middle rounds and make it very close, and Adamek, in typical Adamek fashion, starts letting it fly to shade the back nine en route to a 115-113 victory.
I can see Adamek scoring the flash knockdown in this match up if one occurs, too, which tipped me over the edge.
Great fight, great war, and it'd probably be a trilogy.
