Yeah I appreciate adamek didn't have to fight tougher opposition. But it was tougher in other ways I'd imagine he wasn't earning a great deal from these fights after he paid out all his expenses. You hear a lot about fighters who come up this way considering giving up because their not making enough to live of. Look at kevin mitchell he had to work on the underground to make ends meet. I doubt with the lucrative deal haye signed with the bbc and the money he's made since, he never had to worry about living/training costs etc. I suppose what I'm getting at is that it requires a lot of mental strength to come up the way adamek did.
