Default Did Vitali ruin Adamek?

Did Adamek bite of more than he can chew when he faced Dr ironfist? Watching the second Cunningham fight i have to say he is pretty much shot...Coming in at 233lbs is just ridiculous!

No way was that the same Adamek that battered Banks and Cunningham from pillar to post below 200lbs, the same guy who schooled Grant and fought his heart out against Arreola!

I have the feeling Adamek is only fighting for the paycheck nowadays and struggles to get motivated even for basic conditioning! Don't get me wrong, i don't think he was ever destined to be a great HW but a nice edition to the division when he was on form none the less!

Vitali ruined Adamek.

Adamek's gone downhill since the Vitali fight, his trainer also isn't helping, trying to teach a European an American boxing style, and the weight he gained that was supposed to make him stronger has made it worse.. to me his punches have lost all the sting that made Arreola's face a battered mess

He shouldn't be bulking up so much. 216 should be his max..

He probably actually fought Cunningham near the 240lb mark! Ridiculous...

Never looked any good at HW to me, he doesn't handle the weight well at all

Doesn't have any power and sacrified what speed he has, plus he doesn't seem to be able to take a punch above 200lbs

His list of opponents he's fought and beat at HW is also pretty shocking, and he hasn't looked overly impressive in any of them

He deserves credit for this win considering VK is the only other man to defeat the mexican:

I remember thinking how Vitali looked more bulked up and in shape for that fight than any in recent memory. No doubt he took Adamek very seriously and came in extremely focused.

That being said, I don't think Vitali "ruined" Adamek as much as he exposed him. Tomasz is a great fighter, but what has been his stregths throughout his career (chin, strength, power, toughness) just don't cut it at heavyweight. He is rarely the stronger guy who hits harder, and he just can't absorb the punches from the larger heavyweights with pop.

I always wanted to see a rematch of that bout with an in shape Arreola (who I'd favor). After Adamek faces Cunningham again (and probably loses by UD) and Arreola gets beat down by the champ this year - these two will have a very marketable rematch. It would make a lot of sense either late this year or early next year.

Chris Arreola hasn't fought anybody worth mentioning aside from those two, that's why. He refuses to fight any decent opposition because he is going to be gifted the belt as a vacant when Vitali retires.
