Adamek makes confusing comment about Vitali

Tomasz Adamek Vitali Klitschko Klitschko vs. Adamek Klitschko-AdamekBy Dan Ambrose: Tomasz Adamek (44-1, 28 KO’s) has been more or less a runner since moving up to the heavyweight division in 2009, fighting mostly older heavyweights and not looking very entertaining because of his constantly moving style of fighting.

In an interview at today, Adamek made this very bizarre comment about his September 10th fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KO’s): “I hope Vitali will keep his word to make September 10 a wide open affair, because to have an entertaining fight you need two fighters.” Come again? Is Adamek talking about himself or what?

Vitali is always the one making the fight against all of his opponents. He’s always moving forward looking for a knockout. He’s not someone that runs around the ring trying not to get hit. I’m starting to wonder if Adamek has taken too many hard shots in getting ready for the Vitali fight, because he seems to be babbling without making any real sense. of course, Vitali will make it entertaining. He’s going to be the one doing all the chasing.

No way will the weak-punching Adamek be standing in front of Vitali because if he does he’ll get knocked out. Adamek has already shaken up by Chris Arreola 38-year-old Michael Grant despite all his running. The one that will be stinking up the joint on September 10th won’t be Vitali that’s for sure. Adamek is going to likely be in the survival mode from the opening round, and it would be a miracle if he actually comes to fight. He has a tendency to swell up and cut when he gets hit, and we could see his features distorted early unless he runs like a track star.

I just hope Adamek hasn’t completely lost his senses because he’s sounding very confused about the Vitali fight and the role he’ll be playing in it. Let’s be clear on this: Adamek is the runner, the one looking to survive. Vitali is the slugger and the one making the fight. Adamek will likely be as interesting as watching paint dry, while Vitali will be the fighter that saves the September 10th show by really going after Adamek to knock him cold in front of a packed stadium in Poland.
