Adamek vs Chambers: Live Results and Round-By-Round Coverage

Tomasz Adamek faces Eddie Chambers in tonight's NBC Sports main event.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight at 9 p.m. EDT on the NBC Sports Network, a heavyweight double-header from Newark is on tap, headlined by popular Pole Tomasz Adamek against Philly's Eddie Chambers.

Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage, which should be completed by the time Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Andy Lee is in the ring on HBO.

Adamek (45-2, 28 KO) is favored by oddsmakers, but could be in for a really tough test against one of the few guys in the heavyweight division who can match if not surpass him in boxing skill and hand speed.

Chambers (36-2, 18 KO) hasn't fought since February 2011, but came in at a lean 202 pounds for this one, 13 pounds below former light heavyweight titlist Adamek. He looks to be in top shape, so it may be a matter of ring rust for "Fast" Eddie, because that's a pretty serious layoff. Adamek last fought on March 24, beating Nagy Aguilera.

In the co-feature, prospect Bryant Jennings (13-0, 6 KO) makes his third appearance on the network, following wins over Maurice Byarm and Siarhei Liakhovich. This is an actual "stay busy" fight, as Jennings will be facing Steve Collins (25-1-1, 18 KO), who has a nice record in terms of numbers, but little experience against quality opposition.
