Adamek vs. Cunningham Rematch Prediction
On December 22, top heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek takes on former cruiserweight king Steve Cunningham. It is a rematch from their 2008 bout, which Adamek won by split decision. That was when both men were cruiserweights. At heavyweight, Adamek is far more accustomed. Couple that with the fact that he won the first match and he enters this fight as a clear favorite.
Cunningham is getting up there at 36. His run at cruiserweight ended with a pair of losses to Yoan Pablo Hernandez. In September, he made his heavyweight debut at 207 pounds when he lopsidedly beat journeyman Jason Gavern. But despite a bad ending to his cruiserweight career and the fact that he lost to Adamek the first time around, he is not without hope in this fight.
