If he sticks around at heavy he needs to hope for a shot at Povetkin or, even better, Wlad having to vacate one of his belts to a mandatory. There's no way he can beat Wlad or Vitali. Absolutely no chance.

If his camp decides to select a bit better opposition for this run than the last one, its well worth watching. Who wouldn't want to see Adamek-Haye, Adamek-Chambers, Adamek-Povetkin or Adamek-Helenius. Even Adamek-Arreola II is sort of compelling and may happen given HBO's interest. These are all fights worth watching imo. Adamek knows he has to prove himself to regain momentum and fan base. Nothing will be given on a silver platter like it was to Haye.
Found this also. Personally, I'd bet the house that Adamek beats the brakes off of an un-skilled, ass clown like Haye.

Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KO’s) is interested in fighting former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-2, 23 KO’s) in 2012 on HBO if Haye doesn’t fight WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko next. Adamek wants to take a tune-up fight before he would be willing to take on the 30-year-old Haye.


Whether Haye will bite on an offer for a fight against Adamek really comes down to what happens in his attempts to get a payday bout against Vitali. If Haye can get Vitali in the ring, Haye will make huge money and won’t need a fight with Adamek at this time. But if Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko opt to fight better heavyweights, then Haye will have to settle for a fight against the smallish Adamek.

I think Haye would destroy Adamek because of his power and hand speed. Adamek, 6’2″, wouldn’t have the size or the reach to keep Haye on the outside. Once Haye starts landing his shots, I think he’ll quickly stun Adamek and then flurry on him to get a stoppage. If guys like Michael Grant and Chris Arreola can hurt Adamek, then Haye will likely put Adamek on a gurney.

This would be a good fight for both Haye and Adamek, because neither of them are good enough to beat the Klitschkos, but this way they could still get a nice payday without having to work for a rematch against the huge Ukrainians. Adamek was stopped by Vitali in the 10th round on September 10th. Adamek rarely landed anything in the fight other than jabs, and was hurt on a number of occasions in the fight. Vitali was so much better than the small Adamek that it looked as if Vitali was fighting a cruiserweight instead of a legitimate heavyweight contender with a number #1 ranking by the WBC.

Haye also looked much too small to compete with IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, and spent a good portion of the fight just trying not to get nailed. In the end, Haye took a safety-first approach to the fight by running instead of trying to go after Wladimir and make it a fight.

Adamek better move quickly if he wants to try and get the Haye fight before Vitali does. Right now, Vitali is taking his time and letting Haye wait. Adamek could take advantage of Vitali’s lack of movement on this fight by trying to line up a Haye fight first.

By Dan Ambrose:

Former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KO’s) was badly beaten in a one-sided 10th round TKO defeat to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko earlier this month on September 10th in a loss that pretty much showed that Adamek didn’t have the size or the ability to compete against the much bigger 6’7″ Vitali.


Instead of getting a clue and realizing that he’ll never be good enough to beat Vitali or his brother IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, the 34-year-old Adamek says he’ll continue to fight at heavyweight until he retires at some point in the future. In an interview at fightnews.com, Adamek says he’ll continue to fight the best of the heavyweights no matter how big they are.
That sounds good, but Adamek won’t likely get another title shot for at least a year at best. He turns 35 in December, and I can’t see Adamek getting another crack at a title before his 36th birthday. Wladimir Klitschko already said he has zero interest in fighting the small 6’1″ Adamek after watching how easy it was for his brother Vitali to beat the Pole.

Wladimir doesn’t see it as an exciting or competitive fight, and doesn’t want to beat up Adamek like his brother did. Adamek is only ranked highly by the World Boxing Council, meaning that he could wind up fighting Vitali again if Vitali decides to stick it out another year. Obviously, Adamek is hoping to wait him out until Vitali retires from boxing and then Adamek can swoop in and fight for the vacant WBC title against whatever is ranked high enough to fight him.

Right now, it’s Chris Arreola at number #2, but that could change in a year or two. The worst case scenario for Adamek would be one where a giant heavyweight like Robert Helenius were to be ranked at number #1 or #2, and Adamek would have to fight him for the vacant title. I’ve seen enough of Helenius to know that Adamek wouldn’t stand a chance against him, and probably wouldn’t do well against a healthy Arreola either.

If Vitali decides to continue fighting for another year, we could see Adamek facing Vitali again and getting torn apart once more. Vitali is so much better than Adamed that Vitali could realistically continue fighting until he’s past 50 and still whip Adamek without any problems. That would be a scary thought. Hopefully, Adamek doesn’t continue fighting at heavyweight too much longer because he’s wasting his best years fighting in a division that he doesn’t have the size or the talent to be competitive in.

I would imagine that he will at some stage next year fight one of Wach, Sosnowski, Wawrzyk, Szpika or a rematch with Golota. Either one of those will bring in big money in Poland.

I always enjoy Adamek's fights. I'll be looking forward to his next one in early 2012, which will likely be televised on Versus.

Adamek's trainer said that if Adamek wants any chance to get a title shot again then he has to prove himself, therefore, tougher opponents. I want to see him versus Helenius, Povetkin, Arreola or any of the top 10 basically. Adamek would beat Haye in CW but Haye has the power in HW to hurt Adamek. Adamek has a lot to prove after that crap vs Vitali. I'm still upset on how shitty his fight plan was...

He never quit. There's no quit in Tomasz Adamek.

There was nothing cowardly about the way he fought, he did the best he possibly could against a bigger, stronger, technically skilled opponent.

Now if Haye fights Vitali, we'll be seeing some cowardly running from Diva Haye!

You know what's boring? The Adamek vs. Haye cattiness. Outside Poland and the UK, none of the rest of us care anymore.

Now that it's been proven (although for some of us it never needed to be proven) that neither Haye nor Adamek was a serious heavyweight contender and were both best off staying @ CW, the "rivalry" and race to see who would do more after moving up is irrelevant. Both are going to stubbornly remain at HW, and neither is going to accomplish anything. Even if they do meet up h2h, it won't matter as much as if they'd done it back down at 200. Nobody cares about either guy at HW anymore, let alone their stale pathetic imaginary rivalry (or the even staler and more pathetic - but more real - one between their fans)

Go troll in the Lounge.

assuming he does not have any particular opponent in mind yet ...
he will not come back early next year, April-May is more realistic.

He never quit?

in the last few rounds he was looking for a way out then when the ref stopped it without vitali throwing a punch he was so glad

a warrior like haye would have fought the referee to let the fight go on.
