Dan Rafael, one of the reporters on higher standard of boxing in the USA, published the list of the 10 best boxers at heavyweight in the whole world. Tomasz Adamek (41-1, 27 KO) is on the 6th place. On Rafael’s ranking list we can also find another polish boxer, Krzysztof Włodarczyk. He’s on the 3rd place at junior heavyweight. These are Rafael’s short grades of the 6 best boxers in the whole world at heavyweight category.
1.Wladimir Klitschko (54-3), Ukraine. Having enough of Haye avoiding the fight with the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir will finally fight Aleksander Powietkin, defending the title.
2. Vitali Klitschko (40-2), Ukraine. As expected, Vitali dominated the fight with Albert Sosnowski, who did what he could, but he had no chance. He lost by knockout in 10th round. Klitschko is trying to organize a fight with Nikolai Valuevo, but as long as parties don’t establish a realistic partition for distribution, there will be no fight.
3. David Haye (24-1), England. David Haye should change his discipline into athletic discipline, because he’s so good in running away from Klitschko brothers. First, he was insulting them, and then begged for fights, but he ended with the talking, when in this past year, he got concrete propositions. Now, he’s quiet, he got what he wanted- split the whole money for 50 percent, without an option, that means Vitali’s promoters won’t choose his next opponent. Instead of that, he will defend insignificant belt against a compatriot Audley Harrison. Very boring.
4.Aleksander Powietkin (19-0), Russia. As expected, Powietkin broke down the “journeyman” Javier Mora, finishing the fight in the fifth round. Powietkin is not ready yet to fight Klitschko, but the chances of fight for the heavyweight championship title don’t happen every day, so he has to take them, with the million dollars.
5. Samuel Peter (34-3), Nigeria. For a change, Peter was in a great physical form against Nagy Aguiler, which surprised everyone by winning by knockout with a former champion, Oleg Maskajew. This victory gives him a chance to have a fight with Wladimir Klitschko, who defeated him on points in 2005, even though Wladimir put him down 3 times.
6. Tomasz Adamek (41-1), Poland. Adamek weighting 15 kilograms less than his opponent, the former junior heavyweight champion showed impressive display of speed, combination punches, and resistant jaw in the win over Chris Areolla. Adamek is not resting; he’s getting ready to fight with big opponents, he’s fighting on August 21 with Michael Grant in Prudential Center.
