Vitali: ‘Adamek better than Haye’
Adamek, who like Haye is also a former cruiserweight champion, will challenge Vitali for his WBC belt in one of Poland’s Euro 2012 stadiums and the Ukrainian heavyweight kingpin believes he will pose a bigger threat to his family’s dominance of the division than Haye did.
Speaking at press luncheon at the HBO offices in New York last week, Klitschko said, ‘If you overlook fighters like Adamek, you lose. We have one fighter that is better than Adamek and his name Haye.
‘But Haye is only a champion in talking and talking, nothing more. Adamek is a better fighter than him and I knew this even before Haye’s fight with my brother.’
Klitschko then turned to his opponent to point out the difference between what he called an ‘original heavyweight’ and a fighter ‘who is a heavyweight because he eats lots of food’, warning the Pole he will the difference of fight night.
‘You will know the difference on September 10 in Wroclaw, the difference of being hit by original heavyweight,’ said Klitschko adding that he expects to win by knockout.
