Tomasz Adamek faces Steve Cunningham in the highly-anticipated heavyweight main event, while Tor Hamer meets Vyacheslav Glazkov in the co-feature today on NBC.
Today at 4pm EST on NBC (the real network, not NBC Sports Network on cable), Tomasz Adamek faces Steve Cunningham in a heavyweight rematch of their 2008 cruiserweight classic, with a potential shot at the IBF heavyweight title hanging in the balance.
Adamek (47-2, 29 KO) and Cunningham (25-4, 12 KO) engaged in a 12-round war back in '08, with Adamek prevailing mostly due to knockdowns. Since then, Adamek has had fine success at heavyweight, while Cunningham spent some time in Europe competing as a top cruiserweight. Now, they finally meet again as heavyweights at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Our own Ryan Bivins will be there live on press row, and will have his thoughts later. I'll be here today for live round-by-round coverage of the NBC broadcast, which also features an interesting heavyweight clash between Tor Hamer (19-1, 12 KO) and Vyacheslav Glazkov (13-0, 9 KO) in the co-feature.
Will Adamek repeat on Cunningham, or will the Philly battler make his mark in the heavyweight division after a long run at cruiser? Tune in today, and join us for live discussion and immediate post-fight results and analysis.
