Klitschko TKO's Adamek In 10!

Vitali Klitschko had an easy night defending his WBC crown against former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek.  The old adage that a good big man beats a good small man came to fruition Saturday night as Vitali easily used his height, weight, and skill combination to never allow Adamek in the fight.

  At 40 years old Vitali does not show any signs of slowing down and came in at a low 242 lbs   In round 2 Vitali hit Adamek with a overhand right that made Adamek fall against the ropes and should have counted as a standing 8 but was not.  The fight continued with Vitali doing what he wanted at will while Adamek tried and made a game effort but was just in way over his head (literally).  The same thing happened in the 6th round ( overhand right and Adamek falls against the ropes) but this time it was ruled a knockdown and Adamek received a standing 8 count.  The fight went on the same way with more domination until the ref seen enough and the fight was called to a halt at the 2:20 mark in round 10. With this win Klitschko improved to 43-2 with his 40th knockout and Adamek dropped to 44-2.

"I think the referee made the right decision. He probably could have stopped it a minute earlier."

Vitali Klitschko Quotes

"He's a very good boxer. He was a cruiserweight champion, he was a light heavyweight champion, but he's not good enough to be a heavyweight champion because it's a whole other league."

Adamek Quotes

"He was simply the better fighter and he won. That's sport. You win some and you lose some. This time I lost."

  Congratulations to Vitali to his 40th KO victory and 43nd career win!
