Klitschko-Adamek collide today

By Graham Houston
Photos: KMG/Dmitriy Abramov

For some reason, when I think about Vitali Klitschko’s heavyweight title defence against Tomasz Adamek I think back to an all-British fight that took place many years ago involving the light-heavyweight Freddie Mills against heavyweight Bruce Woodcock.

Mills, who won a world title, was similar to Adamek in that he had a big heart and great fighting spirit. Giving away 20 pounds in weight, Mills fought courageously and did damage, but he was worn down by the bigger Woodcock and knocked out in the 14th round. “Weight and reach told against Mills all the time,” The Times reported.

Weight and reach: Those words resonate across the years. Woodcock and Mills fought in 1949 and we no longer have 15-round fights, but I see a similar sort of outcome in Poland on Saturday, with the bigger man finally overcoming the smaller one. (more…)

Klitschko-Adamek Notes

Report, photo by Przemek Garczarczyk

“After the fourth and eighth rounds, everybody in the world will know what the scoring of this fight is. It gives a unique perspective for fans in the Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw, and for boxing supporters in more than 140 countries where Adamek-Klitschko will be televised and gives more tactical options for the fighters,” said Main Events general counsel Patrick English. “What’s also important is the additional pressure on the judges, who (knowing that their scoring will be analyzed live twice during the fight) better be in top form for every minute of every round.

“K2, the Klitschko’s promotional company also decided to not adopt the popular US unified boxing rules in Wroclaw in regards to accidental head butts, deciding instead for WBC rules. The difference between WBC and unified rules is clear: under WBC rules, a fighter who is not be injured during contact will be penalized with a one point deduction,” said English. Just after the weigh-in, both fighters choose their best gloves – Vitali taking the well known gold and black trim and Adamek, for the first time will be wearing black gloves with red and white trin, the Polish national colors.

After his fight against Robert Guerrero was suddenly cancelled eight days before the scheduled date (August 27) Maidana and his team had to go back to Argentina empty handed, with no money and no dates in the US on the horizon.
