Klitschko Busts Up Adamek in Poland
By Ted Sares: Nothing really new here except great extravaganza put on in the Polish stadium in Wroclaw and the amount of punishment Tomasz Adamek (44-2) took before the fight was mercifully stopped by capable Italian referee Massimo Barrovecchio in the 10th stanza.

It was another systematic beat down byVitali “Ironfist” Klitschko (43-2) who lived up to his aptly named moniker. Adamek had no answers whatsoever. It was simply a case of a great big man beating up on a good smaller man. In fact, after one minute into the first round, the blue print for the rest of the fight was manifest. Fighting extremely focused (as he always does) and fighting tall (as he always does), Vitali kept Adamek at a safe distance while delivering crunching jabs and face-busting rights that had the brave Pole’s face bruised and bleeding. The big doctor won every round ( as he always does) and had “Goral” down twice (once officially).
The fight was so one-sided, the HBO team had to reach to fill in some narrative and some of it, mostly by Kellerman, was frankly boring.
The most intriguing question arising from this mismatch is where does Vitali go from here? Robert Helenius? David Haye? Alexander Ustinov? Tyson Fury? As for Adamek, he will come back to Newark and earn some good paydays duking with other heavyweights. Maybe he can fight his way back into the top mix and for his “reward” get a bout with Wladimir.
Make no mistake. What we boxing fans are witnessing here is a once in a lifetime phenomena of two very big, very smart, and very athletic brothers who continue to decimate the heavyweight division.
