Tomasz Adamek Says No Way Will Vitali Be Able To Keep Up With His Pace
By James Slater: Though Vitali Klitschko and Tomasz Adamek have not exactly engaged in a fierce, nasty war of words ahead of this Saturday's World Boxing Council (WBC)heavyweight title fight, the two have exchanged some words.

We will soon find out who is right in their pre-fight promise.
Regarding tactics, the ones the challenger will take, Adamek spoke of setting a "killer pace," one that the 40-year-old champ will not be able to cope with.
Whereas Klitschko has vowed that he will never lose his title in the ring, Adamek says it is his destiny to become heavyweight king.
"My pace is going to kill him, its as simple as that," Adamek said recently. "If you are slow, he is going to hit you, but if you are fast, then afterwards he will not know where he is."
Adamek certainly has speed, of hand and of foot, but enough to trouble Klitschko? The big question is will Adamek be able to hurt the rock-chinned champion?
I can see "Goral" having some success early, as his speed frustrates a Vitali who is unable to get set and land, but ultimately, the sheer strength and power of "Dr. Iron Fist" will begin to slow the challenger down.
Adamek is not short in guts and courage, therefore he may hang on to hear the final bell, but that is all we can hope for I feel.
Look for a bright start from Adamek as he puts rounds in the bank, before the natural heavyweight takes over and gets the late stoppage. I go for Klitschko to get the TKO in the 10th or 11th. I also feel, though, that Adamek will put up a far better challenge than a certain other recent Klitschko challenger did!
