Tomasz Adamek won a twelve round decision last night over 38 year old former world title challenger Michael Grant at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center.
The former light heavy and cruiserweight king outboxed the towering Grant over the first half of the bout, as was expected given the the youth and quickness advantages enjoyed by Adamek.
But once Adamek slowed down from the early effort and got in range of the 6'7 Grant's punches, he began to get hit and even the lost a few frames to the Pennsylvania man, who hasn't had a high level bout since losing to Dominick Guinn in 2003.
The later rounds saw Adamek return to prominence but he was still getting hit and at times wobbled by the much slower Grant.
After 12 rounds, Adamek was awarded the decision on all three cards 117-111, 118-111 and 118-110.
Adamek goes to 42-1 (27), retaining the IBF International and NABO titles while Grant falls to 46-4 (34).
