Chisora gives Adamek no chance of beating Vitali
By Dan Ambrose: British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora is giving heavyweight challenger Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28 KO’s) absolutely no chance of beating WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KO’s) on September 10th in their fight in Poland. Chisora sees Adamek as being too small for towering 6’7″ and sees Klitschko’s size and big power being the telling factors in the fight.
Chisora said this to eastsideboxing.com’s On the Ropes Boxing Radio show: Adamek hasn’t got any chance! He doesn’t have any chance in hell. He’s a small fighter and he’s trying to use speed, but we know that you can only use speed for so many rounds until you get hit by a heavyweight and it’s goodnight…David Haye came in trying to use speed, until he got hit by a jab and he realized that these guys can hit. He realized he’s not in the same league so he had to survive. He didn’t want to go out like a punk, but he did. Knowing his elder [Vitali] brother, his older brother can hit. He hits very, very hard.”
Chisora is right, of course. The one thing I disagree with him about is Adamek being able to use his speed for so many rounds. I don’t see Adamek being able to use his speed other than to run. He’s too slow and too small to do much more than run. If Adamek tries to actually fight Vitali, and I don’t care for how long, Adamek is going to get blasted out. It’s as simple as that. Adamek is a guy that would be in trouble against some of the contenders in the division if he would have actually fought any of them instead of taking on old guys like Michael Grant, Kevin McBride and Andrew Golota.
Adamek will fight Vitali the same way he fought McBride and Grant. He’s going to try and come close enough to throw a couple of shots and then try and run. He’ll try to do this all night long and will get punished by Vitali’s jabs, left hooks and right hands. We may see a quick knockout in the 1st if Vitali catches Adamek as he comes in range to throw one of his pecking shots.
