Tomasz Adamek looks to take IBF heavyweight belt

ImagePolish boxer Tomasz Adamek will be taking a step towards a shot at the IBF heavyweight title in Pennsylvania on Saturday against US challenger Steve Cunningham.

“What’s important for me is not that I have to win,” Adamek told the TVN24 news channel.

“On the contrary, I want to win,” he said.

The fight is in fact a belated rematch that was stalled after Adamek moved up to heavyweight.

The two boxers last faced each other some four years ago in a fight for the IBF cruiserweight title.

Adamek, who is nicknamed ‘Goral’ (Highlander) owing to his roots in the Polish highland town of Zywiec, scraped a victory by split decision.

“This time we’re meeting in heavyweight, where you fight differently,” Adamek affirmed.

The 36-year-old has won all three of his fights this year, taking in clashes with Americans Travis Walker and Eddie Chambers, as well as Dominican star Nagy Aguilera.
