The Big Nothing! In Search of Another Victim for Vitali Klitschko

By Carlos Acevedo of The Cruelest Sport. (Welcome to another edition of The Big Nothing!, news from the heavyweight wasteland.) Now that David Haye has mysteriously gone mum on the subject of the Klitschko brothers, it looks like Vitali Klitschko will have to look elsewhere for his next victim, err, opponent. A glance at the WBC ratings (mock the sanctioning bodies all you want, but until Klitschko vacates his "title," he will be facing fighters the WBC approves of) reveals a motley crew of challengers and non-challengers who might be next on the hit list. Because Klitschko can fight a trapeze artist and still draw 50,000 fans in Germany, he can pick and choose opponents at this point. But he would still like to be more than just a Youtube clip to American fans, so this edition of "The Big Nothing!" focuses on the fights and fighters HBO or Showtime might actually agree to broadcast.

Weights: Arreola - 250; Adamek - 217


On the bright side, this is Arreola's lowest weight since fighting Chazz Witherspoon two years ago. On the not as bright side, it's still a far cry from the 225 - 235 range where he looked his best.

Adamek refused flight on plane that crashed


Freaky stuff. On Monday, a friend of Tomasz Adamek offered to take him on a sightseeing tour. Adamek declined, concerned about the weather conditions. The plane crashed, killing all five aboard.

Adamek-Arreola in April on HBO?


According to Adamek's Polish promoter, Tomasz Adamek has gotten the call asking for a fight against Cris Arreola, in Riverside, California, on HBO, on April 24. Of course, Goral still needs to get past Jason Estrada before he should look to fights against major opponents four months from now.

Adamek-Golota in NYC


For those of you who are in NYC and really interested in watching Adamek-Golota, Club Exit in Brooklyn will be airing the fight. Cover charge will be $20, and the card starts at 11:30 a.m. Club Exit is a few doors down from the G train Greenpoint stop at 149 Greenpoint Avenue.

Tomasz Adamek moving to heavyweight


According to Bokser.org, Tomasz Adamek has gotten sick of waiting around for a big money fight at cruiserweight and will be moving to heavyweight. This means there will be no rematch with Steve Cunningham, and pretty much forecloses the opportunity to have Adamek-Hopkins. Of course, if a network is willing to dish out big money for Adamek-Cunningham II, or if Hopkins steps to the plate for a fight for the cruiserweight championship, all of this could change. One possible target mentioned in the article would be a fight with Andrew Golota, which would be huge in the Polish community.
