Good point, but I don't see the time coming for Vitali to start losing, cause I think he'll retire this year while he's still steemrolling everyone he faces.

Wladimir may also bow out before he depletes to where they can beat him.

I agree with Merchant in that Adamek's speed won't be a factor, due to the brothers both also have fast hands, and both of them having a size and HUGE power advantage over Adamek.

Adamek stands no chance, but he'll be no worse than any other challenger out there that's not named Haye. Good luck to him.

Good point, but I don't see the time coming for Vitali to start losing, cause I think he'll retire this year while he's still steemrolling everyone and still so much better and bigger than everyone he faces.

Wladimir may also bow out before he depletes to where they can beat him.

I think so too, they are to smart to not retire in time

I believe Adamek landing a punch on Wlad (which will happen sooner or later) puts Wlad in trouble, big troubles. Wlad's cheen is glass.

Couldn't disgree more. Of course Adamek will eventually land a little something, but Wlads chin is better then what you think. Peter hit him pretty flushly last fight during a clinch and he reacted nicely.

I am hopeful Adamek can do this. I think he is too small for Klitschkos, however I think he has a much higher chance against Vitali.

Against Vitali I think I could give Adamek 60-40 chances of winning. I think Vitalis age as well as style would be a combination that would make Adamek look more active, more elusive, giving him a chance to outpoint Vitali. Out working and out pointing him is the only way to do it, though, as well as not getting caught.

As far as Wladimir his technique is quite air tight thus far, and I don't think Adamek has the proper tools to break through it.

Chambers is more or less as quick as Adamek, and similar size, and I do not remember him landing anything useful on Wlad. I do not see why Adamek should be more succesfull here. BTW, with Adamek defence (even if somewhat improved) there is no "later" for him in this fight.

yeah, haye again he's scared to fight someone under 38 yo and yet you think he's somehow special? i don't think so... adamek is probably the best opponent out there... povetkin is good as well but he didn't take this fight

There is a difference betweeen Chambers and Adamek. Chambers has really fast hands, but he doesnt have fast legs. Adamek has both fast hands and legs. And he is very effective with his speed as he is in the constant movement.

To be honest Chambers fought the worst way he could have fought. He was standing in front of him and trying to block the punches or making Wladimir miss and then trying to counter him. Something like this works mainly if you have the physical advantage and you are stronger than your opponent.

I can see Adamek moving around Wladimir, making circles and throwing combinations of body punches when he is inside. It can work if Wladimir is vulnerable on body punches.

Didn't everyone expect Haye to do the same thing?
