Tomasz Adamek to fight on Cunningham Huck undercard on December 29
Former WBC light heavyweight champion Tomasz Adamek (32-1, 22 KOs) will take on Tiwon Taylor on the Huck undercard in Bielefeld on December 29. While Captain Huck (19-0, 14 KOs) will be eager to edge IBF champion Steve Cunningham (20-1, 10 KOs), Adamek will also be looking to make some noise in the cruiserweight division.

The 31-year-old suffered the first loss of his career back in February when Chad Dawson deprived him of the WBC belt. Adamek then decided to move up in weight, and just four months later, he bounced back with a seventh-round TKO victory over Luis Andres Pineda. "I feel well in the cruiserweight division," Adamek said. "That is my natural weight. I can eat and drink as much as I like. Thatīs why I feel even stronger."
Adamek is no stranger to German boxing fans as he is well remembered for knocking out Thomas Ulrich in the sixth round of their meeting back in October 2005. A win over Taylor (26-14, 19 KOs) would put him in the frame for a world title shot in the new limit.
Adamek added: "The win over Pineda proved how well I can fight as a cruiserweight. I havenīt lost any of my speed. The only difference is that my opponents are punching harder. In order to adjust, Iīve changed my style a little, trying to put a bit more distance between them and me."
