Steve Cunningham is in the final preparation stages for his December 22nd rematch with Tomasz Adamek. Their last fight is widely regarded as one of the greatest cruiserweight battles of all time. It's below Qawi-Holyfield 1 but right in the mix with Toney-Jirov. Although the fighters are now four years older and fighting at heavyweight, it remains a must see affair.
Most likely I will attend this media workout in person and post videos for BadLeftHook later that day. Readers can leave questions they want me to ask Steve Cunningham or Naim Nelson in the comments section below. For those of you unfamiliar with Nelson, you should at least check out the last round of his recent bout with Victor Vasquez. It's one of the best I've seen all year. The commentary states that the press thought the fight was even going into the last round, but I assure you I had Nelson well ahead. Ironically Steve Cunningham was one of the commentators.
NBC will televise Adamek-Cunningham II along with the co-feature Tor Hamer-Vyacheslav Glazkov, starting at 4 PM EDT on Dec. 22. The press release did not confirm if the Naim Nelson-Osnel Charles undercard bout will be aired.
